Art Exhibition Supported By Arekibo in Aid of Jigsaw

Arekibo will be sponsoring an upcoming art exhibition - called Extensions - by our Head of UX – Fintan O’Byrne. All works are for sale with 30% of the proceeds to be donated to Jigsaw (formerly Headstrong) the National Centre for Youth Mental Health in Ireland. Jigsaw’s mission is to bring about significant change in how Ireland thinks about, responds to and supports young people’s mental health. In addition to original artwork in various media, there will also be limited edition prints available. All prints are produced using pigments rather than conventional dyes and are printed on ISO 9706 compliant museum standard paper. As a result, the longevity of every print is assured to archival standards. Each print edition is strictly limited, meaning that the number of prints is determined in advance and never exceeded. The integrity of the edition is guaranteed not only by the fact that each print is numbered and signed by hand, but also through a unique hologram system used by the Copper House Gallery. This system is based on paired numbered holograms applied both to the print as well as a Certificate of Authenticity and cross referenced through their Artlogic Database. Speaking at this event will be Brent Pope, best known for his rugby punditry on RTÉ, Brent is also an art enthusiast and mental health ambassador.
