The Art for Kelp Exhibition takes place at Organico Bantry from 28 May - 23 June 2018. Artwork can also be purchased here by clicking on an image below. 100% of the sale price goes to the Kelp campaign and we are very grateful to all participating artists who have so kindly donated their work.

 

(Please note: Whilst every effort will be made to coordinate the physical and online versions of the exhibition, there may be a short delay updating this page after a piece is sold from Organico. If this results in the online purchase of a work that has already been sold, we will notify the buyer as soon as possible so they can either choose another artwork or receive a full refund.)
