The world's only Virtual Gallery of Sherlock Holmes art launches today featuring forty three original pieces of art varying in price from $750 up to $14,000.
The artists involved have art hanging in more than fifty of the world's leading galleries including The Smithsonian, The Metropolitan Museum of Art and The Guggenheim.
The Gallery's aim is to enable all fans around the world to see the art and get a chance to appreciate it - and of course have a chance to buy the originals.
The Art of Sherlock Holmes is a unique project, bringing together artists and authors with the art inspired by traditional Sherlock Holmes stories. The project is curated by its creator, Sherlockian author and art fan Phil Growick.
The first real world exhibition was back in May 2019 at the Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens in Florida and featured the first fifteen pieces. The second real world exhibition takes place from the 28th February at the Paul Fisher Gallery in Florida with the third planned to take place in London in the autumn.
With The Virtual Gallery you can walk around, zoom in and out and get details on each of the pieces of art.
This Virtual Gallery brings together the three collections - Global, USA and West Palm. Collectors will need to move quickly as several of the pieces have already been sold - but fans can get hold of authenticated prints of all the pieces from the main partners - The Conan Doyle Estate. - and the Estate is currently running a 3 for 2 offer.
Each piece of art was inspired by a particular Sherlock Holmes story and fans that would like to see the art and story together can get them in the art books. Each collection is captured in stunning hardback full colour art books and to celebrate the gallery launch we are offering free personalisation on all the books bought from this site - Free Personalisation.
The gallery can be embedded in any website so if you'd like to include it in yours please get in touch (contact us....)
A share of all of the proceeds of the merchandising go to four major charities:
Stepping Stones is a school for children with learning disabilities based in the former home of the creator of Sherlock Holmes, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. The building - ‘Undershaw’ has been restored back to its former glory and now houses one of Europe’s leading facilities for learning disabilities. Steve Emecz is a patron of the school.
Twinned with Stepping Stones, Happy Life has saved the lives of over 600 abandoned babies in the last two decades. The project has expanded to include a school and paediatric hospital. Steve and his wife Sharon spend every Christmas out at Happy Life with the kids.
This is the leading venue for cancer research in the U.S. and will receive its proceeds from all USA and GLOBAL editions of The Art of Sherlock Holmes.
There are 821 million undernourished people in the world today. That means one in nine people do not get enough food to lead an active and healthy life. In fact, hunger and malnutrition are the number one risk to health worldwide — greater than AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis combined. The good news is that hunger is entirely solvable. And it costs just US$0.50 to feed one child for a day. Steve Emecz is a World Food Programme mentor and participates in the Innovation Accelerators in Munich, Germany.
