In March 2014 we organized an art raffle to cover the cost of treatment for our cat, Berta. We decided we wanted to give every ticket holder a prize – a piece of art- as sign of gratitude. Unfortunately the night before the day of the exhibition, Berta died.
Despite the loss, the event was a great success in that it brought together a group of artists – and art lovers who wanted to support us. We realized this was something we wanted to do long-term and the Berta Art Raffle became an on-going project.
The aim of the Berta Art Raffle is to encourage young art enthusiasts to start building their own art collection by exposing them to affordable art, while promoting and supporting local and international artists.
