On Monday 9th December 2013, Auxiliary Bishop Mgr. Charles J. Scicluna inaugurated an art exhibition at the Wignacourt Museum, adjacent to St Paul’s Church in Rabat. Around sixty local artists have donated one or more pieces of art to be auctioned off on New Year’s Day during the Festa ta’ Ġenerożità organized by RTK4Charity in aid of Id-Dar tal-Providenza.
When he was declaring the exhibition officially opened, Bishop Scicluna expressed his gratitude to all the artists who were prepared to part with their art creations to be auctioned off for a just cause that is Id-Dar tal-Providenza. Fr Martin Micallef, Director of the Home, spoke about the needs of the Home to be able to operate and offer the services it does on a daily basis but also stressed on the need for inclusion of persons with disability in all aspects of life, be they political, social, economical, cultural as well as religious. Also present for the opening were Archbishop Emeritus Mgr Ġużeppi Mercieca as well as artists and friends of Id-Dar tal-Providenza.
The Exhibition will be open between the 10th and 27th December all days of the week (excluding Christmas Day) between 9.30am and 4.30pm.
The auction is being held on line and bidding can already be made at www.dtpauction.com . It will also be possible to bid by phone or in person during the Festa ta’ Ġenerożità on New Year’s Day at Id-Dar tal-Providenza in Siġġiewi.
