The Parliament of Malta hosted an exhibition of works of art – paintings, sculptures and ceramics – donated by various Maltese and foreign artists. These works of art will be auctioned off online in aid of Id‑Dar tal‑Providenza on January 1st as part of the Festa ta’ Ġenerożità that will be happening under the big tent in the Home’s Siġġiewi car park and to which everyone is welcome.
The Director of the Home, Fr Martin Micallef, thanked the Speaker, the Hon. Dr Anġlu Farrugia, for once again agreeing to host the exhibition in the Parliament’s entrance, a truly central and accessible location for the public in Valletta. With the full support of Dr Farrugia it can be said that the exhibition has become an annual event. Fr Martin appealed to all Maltese and Gozitans to join in at the Festa ta’ Ġenerożità on new year’s day.
In a short address, the Speaker referred to the work achieved by Mgr Mikiel Azzopardi, whom he described as a pioneer who taught and encouraged the Maltese and Gozitans to change their attitude towards persons with disability.
Dr Farrugia thanked all the artists, both Maltese and foreign, for their generosity in donating their works of art as well as those carers and support workers who work with the residents of Id-Dar tal-Providenza.
The catalogue of all the works of art as well as more information on the auction may be accessed online on www.dtpauction.com. One can bid online on www.belgraviaauctions.com. between December 15th 2023 and the 1st of January 2024.
