GOOD CAUSE: Art for Alexandra

Alexandra Trotsenko is a Russian artist and illustrator based in Ireland, who has exhibited in St Stephen’s Green and published a children’s book. IN 2009 she lost several fingers in a vicious knife attack at her home. The man who did it has been jailed for 16 years, but without an expensive prothesis, which she can’t afford, Alexandra can’t draw. On 27th November there’ll be an art auction to raise money for her at Adams Blackrock auctioneers, and they’re still accepting work for auction. If you have something you’d like to donate, contact Bryan Greene or Martina Noonan on 01 2885146/7/8. Alternatively, you can make a donation to:
