Reena Ahluwalia Donating Paintings to Benefit Jewelers for ChildrenMay 08, 17
(IDEX Online) – Noted jewelry designer and artist Reena Ahluwalia has donated two original, museum-quality paintings to be auctioned at the Jewelers for Children Facets of Hope event in Las Vegas during the JCK Show.
The paintings, Portal of Empowerment and Brilliance Pink Diamond, "show highly nuanced, hyper-realistic diamonds with ultra-magnified facets," Jewelers for Children (JFC) said in a statement.
Ahluwalia is a multiple award-winning Canadian Jewelry designer, diamond painter and educator and a top jewelry designer in Canada. She has won many national and international awards, including the De Beers Diamonds International Award, and Rio Tinto Diamonds' Global Design Competition on the Tahitian Pearl Trophy.
“My paintings are very personal to me and each one is unique creation that has its own personality," said Ahluwalia. "Knowing that the sale of them will benefit children who need the most help is truly gratifying for me and a wonderful recognition of my work.”
Both paintings will be on display during the event for potential bidders to view up close. Portal of Empowerment is valued at $20,000 on the collector’s market and Radiate Brilliance is valued at $10,000.
“Having a talent such as Reena provide these beautiful paintings to benefit Jewelers for Children is truly a once in a lifetime opportunity for the charity," said David Rocha, JFC executive director. "So many more children will be helped due to her generosity and huge heart.”
The Facets of Hope event will take place on Wednesday, June 7, in the South Seas Ballroom at Mandalay Bay Resort Casino. The paintings will be on display during the cocktail reception starting at 6:00 p.m. and during the dinner and program. Anyone interested in presenting a reserve bid before the event can contact JFC.
