Art Incubates Life: The LifePod Art Exhibition
The Life Pod Art Sale features more than 50 works by some of New Zealand’s most respected artists. Contributors include Emma Bass (pictured above), Rueben Paterson, Denys Watkins, Paul Hartigan, David McCracken, Ann Robinson, Galia Amsel, Julie Ross, Jim Wheeler, Sara Hughes, Brian McCracken and Ben Foster.
The sale will raise critical funds for Sir Ray Avery’s LifePod Infant Incubator which is set to save millions of babies’ lives, globally.
Each year, eight million children die before their 5th birthday. Three million of these deaths occur in the first 28 days and many of these deaths are preventable if babies are placed in the safety and warmth of a neonatal incubator. The Mondiale LifePod incubator is designed to run continuously without the need for replacement parts or maintenance by trained technicians and to meet the challenging conditions encountered within facilities in the developing world.
Sir Ray Avery GNZM is a successful scientist, author, inventor, entrepreneur, philanthropist and start up investor. He founded Medicine Mondiale in 2003 because he believed it was possible to improve healthcare outcomes on a global scale.
Avery says, “Art is the soul of humankind it represents the pinnacle of our creative aspirations and achievements. The beauty of this art sale is that not only will the purchasers’ gain a work they can cherish and love, but they will also contribute to keeping little hearts beating across the globe.”
Webb’s is delighted to be hosting this exhibition between Thursday 12 and Saturday 14 October and also to be supporting this excellent cause.
