The excitement and anticipation is building in the office as we prepare for our annual Summer Art Exhibition to raise money for our chosen charity, Mind. In conjunction with our exhibition, Oktra is running a Facebook competition in support of Mind. Please vote for your favourite piece of artwork here: http://goo.gl/8OMDhV and stand a chance to WIN a Vitra Wiggle Stool. Voting closes on the 17th August 2016, so get voting!
To host our Summer Art Exhibition, we invited everyone from employees, partners and children to nieces, nephews, grandparents and siblings to get creative and submit their artwork. Categories are broken down into under 5’s, 6-11 years old, 12-17 years old and 18+.
We are overwhelmed with the amount of submissions this year. From drawings, paintings, sculptures, videography, poetry and photography, we have collected over 240 pieces of art. All the artwork has been hung up around the office on display for the next two weeks whilst being bid for in a silent auction.
Oktra and Co. office | A kaleidoscope of creativity
On 11th August, judges from Artiq & Spectra Studios will select the best artwork in each category. There will also be an additional prize for the artwork that receives the most votes on our Facebook page.
The exhibition will end on the 18th August with our Summer Art Exhibition party in our office where winners will be announced and final bids for art will be made. This will be an evening of art, music, face painting, hotdogs, magic tricks, popcorn, candy floss, drinks and some “get creative” art areas. All proceeds from the auction will be donated to Mind.
