    A timed online fundraising auction of work donated by Irish artists runs at Whyte’s until October 27. The Imogen Stuart Standing Stone fundraiser of 47 lots is for a piece of public sculpture at Otranto Park near Sandycove in Dublin. German by birth Imogen Stuart, now 92, is one of Ireland’s most respected artists and a Saoi of Aosdana (people of the Arts in Ireland). One of her most recent larger projects is a design for a granite sculpture, a ‘standing stone’ twelve feet in height and weighing between seven and eight tonnes. Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Council has agreed to contribute to the erection of the sculpture and to maintain it once completed. But such a large piece of stone will be very expensive to quarry and carve, transport and install. A sum of probably more than 50,000 is needed and artists have donated work for the fundraiser for this project.

    Imogen Stuart RHA – The Good Shepherd. Design for sculpture for the Church of the Good Shepherd Churchtown Co Dublin. UPDATE: THIS SOLD FOR 480
