This year I personally have noticed an increase in awareness about protecting wildlife and in particular the dwindling numbers of Gorilla’s in the world. Some of you may be aware that Ellen DeGeneres turned 60 this year and one of her gifts was the Ellen DeGeneres wild life fund which she is raising huge amounts of money for. It was established to support global conservation efforts for critically endangered species. Their first goal is to build a permanent home for the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund helping to secure the future of Rwanda’s wild Gorillas.
With this in mind I was excited when I recently received an email from an artist that I visited on one of my gallery visits. Emma Bowring an incredibly talented wild life painter based in Lyme Regis contacted us to see if we could help. Emma has generously gifted one of her paintings to the Remembering Wildlife charity for their Remembering Great Apes campaign. The piece was auctioned off for the charity to help raise money for the fantastic cause.
Remembering Wildlife works in partnership with the Born Free charity. The Remembering Great Apes campaign is working to share the plight facing gorillas, chimpanzees, bonobos and orangutans and also to raise the funds to protect them and other wildlife. You may have seen their previous campaigns Remembering Elephants and Remembering Rhinos. The work they do has raised thousands of pounds to help the conservation of wildlife and protect these incredible creatures. At Isca Fine Art we wanted to show our support for this great cause and help Emma and the lovely Victoria at Remembering Wildlife.
What We Did…
To ship a painting, especially one that has raised significant funds it is vital that it arrives with its new owner undamaged. So we offered our bespoke packing service as well as our Freight Forwarding services to arrange shipment of the painting. It was an absolute delight to see this painting up close, the team all went to have a look and our packing team ensured that it was packed to the highest standard for protection. We arranged the piece to be exported to its new owner in Northern Ireland keeping Victoria in the loop at every stage so that she could let the winner of the auction know when to expect the wonderful painting.
The stunning painting “More Precious than Gold” by Emma Bowring arrived safely last week and we are delighted to say everyone involved was pleased with the packing and shipping job Isca Fine Art delivered.
