EXHIBITIONS: Ogilvy's Art Auction for Charity
Published on .
Through Dec. 15, Ogilvy/New York is hosting a "Giving Gallery" — an art show featuring the work of agency staffers. The donated art will be sold via silent auction with the proceeds going to Hartley House, an organization, founded in 1897, that provides social services to Manhattan's Hell's Kitchen/Clinton community. The exhibition, open to all Ogilvy employees, features some 60 works on display at the shop's midtown offices. "There's a wealth of hidden talent here, and once the creatives learned about the cause and the charity involved, we were overwhelmed by the response," says group creative director Josh Tavlin, who conceived the show with Madhu Malhan, Ogilvy's minister of culture. Seen here are four pieces from the "Giving Gallery," led by "Fruit & Veggies," a 2005 painting by senior partner/illustration studio director Richard Chandler. (Chandler had a solo show at New York's David Findlay Galleries earlier this year.) In the PDF are the photographs 2) "The Life of You," by senior art director Monica Escobar and 3) "The Small Bear On Dead Wood," by creative director Witold Riedel, as well as 4) "Red Stains," an archival digital print by Hee Chun, a designer at Ogilvy's Brand Integration Group.
