Stansfield Bridge Club's Artful Support of Youth26-Jan-2018

The success of all four English Junior Teams (U26 Open, U26 Women, U21 and U16) at the European Youth Championships in 2017 delivered a problem the EBU are, in the many respects, pleased to have: the responsibility to send those teams to Suzhou in China later this year.

No surprise then that we might see dedicated fund-raising this year but Stansfield Bridge Club's idea is as unexpected as it is brilliant. Fortunate to have renowned artist Rui Paes in their midst, they are selling prints of a special bridge artwork in support of the youth teams.

Dr Double by Rui Paes

Dr Double by Rui Paes

Rui has the reputation for free use of the double card, hence the title and subject matter. The limited edition print is taken from an original previously on show at the club's art exhibition last year. Rui is an acclaimed painter, illustrator and muralist, whose works include illustrating Madonna's children's book which made the Top 10 New York Times Best Seller List.

Artist, Rui Paes

The prints of Dr Double measure 14½" x 11" and cost £25 (+p&p). The prints will be signed by the artist in a limited edition numbered 1 to 500. All the profits will go to funding the England teams.

To obtain your print please order direct from Stansfield Bridge Club.
