UPDATE ON INCOGNITO:
Update on Incognito Part Two from Jack and Jill Children’s Foundation.
It has really been quite a week for our Incognito team at Jack & Jill. We are still busy processing and posting the orders. So please bear with us and thank you for your support and patience.
This day last week, we held one of the fastest art sales for charity ever. A sale that we had switched from gallery to online, to last for a week, sold out completely in 15 minutes flat. It was quite a whirlwind.
With over 15,000 visitors to the Incognito store, all vying for 1,814 pieces of art, it was a sprint to checkout.
We are glad to report that, of the 1,618 successful buyers, over 80% got one piece of art only and people had read our guidelines. For so many others though, it was a fun but frustrating effort and we acknowledge and appreciate your feedback and your best wishes for the charity.
As promised, we’ve taken some time to review our options for Incognito Part Two, which had been scheduled for The Lavit Gallery in September.
We took into consideration the unprecedented demand for our first online sale, your feedback and suggestions, concerns around continued social distancing into the future and, most of all, Jack & Jill’s SOS funding appeal and how the charity depended now more than ever on Incognito’s success.
We can now announce that the Incognito Part Two collection will be unveiled on Monday 11th May on www.incognito.ie, with the online sale taking place at 10am on Thursday 28th May.
Please remember that this is a separate collection of over 900 original pieces of art, already donated, indexed, photographed and ready to go and we will share the names of the artists over the coming days. What we can reveal is that Bruce and Patti Springsteen are in Incognito 2, as they donated multiple pieces, as are Guggi, Una Sealey, The Project Twins and some of the Munster Squad who gave art a try!
We want to thank our friends and supporters William Fry for helping us to make this happen at such a challenging time for the Jack & Jill Children’s Foundation.
