12 Top SA artists ‘Do It For The Dogs’.
As we all gear up for 2021 and send positive energy out into the universe in the hope that it can only be better than 2020, 12 of South Africa’s leading contemporary artists have contributed towards a calendar for Do It For The Dogs, a charity initiative that raises funds for animals in need.
Do It For the Dogs is a passion project started by Tracey Burke, a Cape Town advertising professional and ardent animal rights supporter. The project has evolved from a charity drive selling preloved clothes at pop up second-hand clothes markets in Cape Town, to an Instagram account and Facebook page, raising R125k in lockdown alone.
All funds raised have been donated to animal welfare organisations that have struggled through Covid 19-affected 2020. The aim in 2021 is to get even more dogs sterilised, adopted, homed, loved or cared for.
“My favourite type of dog is a rescue,” says Tracey, “I love them all. And while I know that I can’t save every abandoned or neglected mutt out there, I know that I have to do everything I can to try. Do It For The Dogs was started to raise money for our hard-working, underfunded animal welfare organisations that already do so much. They do incredible work and need all the help they can get.”
The A5 desk calendar will feature works by Conrad Botes, Thabang Lehobye, Paul du Toit, Anton Kannemeyer, David Kuijers, Sarah Pratt, John Pace, Gerhard Human, Rikus Ferreira, Daniel du Plessis, Karlien de Villiers and Frank van Reenen.
A few of the artworks will be up for auction along with a piece by Lorraine Loots.
The calendar comprises 12 cards featuring an artist per month. It has been designed to be framed individually or as a collection at the end of the year. To order your calendar in time for Christmas, mail Tracey on [email protected] or WhatsApp 083 264 1805. The calendar is priced at R350 with all proceeds going to charity.
