Cheshire-based art personality Adam Partridge, best known for his numerous appearances on shows including Flog It!, Bargain Hunt and Dickinson’s Real Deal will be auctioneer at Brooke’s first ever art exhibition and auction at Chester Military Museum this September.
Titled Tails from the Field, the exhibition will be open to the public from 23-28 September, culminating in an invitation-only drinks reception and live auction on Saturday 28 September.
I am thrilled to be auctioneer at Brooke’s first ever art exhibition and auction and can’t wait to see some brilliant art donated to Brooke from across the UK and beyond. As someone who is passionate about animal welfare, I’m particularly pleased to be contributing to this great cause and look forward to seeing how much we can raise towards Brooke’s work with horses, donkeys and mules and communities around the world.
The exhibition will feature pieces of art donated from around the UK and further afield, including two paintings by famed equine artist Laura Jeanne, as seen on C4. Pieces of art range from paintings to a miniature life size knitted donkey, and will centre upon the overarching themes of working equines around the world, in the UK and equines at war.
Funds raised from the auction will go towards Brooke’s work making improvements to the lives of working horses, donkeys and mules and the people who depend on them.
There are over 100 million working equines in the world, supporting the livelihoods of 600 million people. It’s estimated that more than half suffer from exhaustion, dehydration and malnutrition as a result of excessive workloads and limited animal health services, and Brooke believes this can be avoided.
