LONDON.- After three busy and highly successful days, the showcase exhibition to launch the new art project Cure3, closed at Bonhams London on 15th March. Considerable advance interest resulted in brisk early sales with 40% of the works finding eager buyers within the first 30 minutes of the opening, including works by Damien Hirst, Grayson Perry, Sir Peter Blake and Peter Doig. Whilst a small handful of art works are still available to purchase via the website, Cure³ has raised over a quarter of a million pounds, with all proceeds going directly towards vital research to find a cure for Parkinson’s.

Cure³ was created to raise awareness and funds for the charity, The Cure Parkinson’s Trust (CPT), an organisation which only funds work which has the capacity to slow, stop or reverse the condition. Parkinson’s currently affects more than 10 million people worldwide but current ground-breaking research offers real hope. Tom Isaacs, Co-Founder and President of The Cure Parkinson’s Trust commented: “The money raised from the event will be allocated to clinical trials which have been prioritised by the best Parkinson’s scientists around the world all of which have the potential to slow, stop and perhaps even reverse Parkinson’s. We are on the cusp of a breakthrough. Watch this space.”

Cure³ has been an incredible collaborative project, created by the curatorial team Artwise in partnership with Bonhams and the David Ross Foundation – and made possible by the generosity and enthusiasm of the 53 participating artists. The outstanding quality of their work made Cure³ a critical triumph, as well as a fundraising success. Harvey Cammell, Deputy Chairman Bonhams UK, said "Bonhams has been delighted to host Cure³ in our flagship London saleroom. The phenomenal line-up of world-class contemporary artists – all of whom so generously donated work - made this a wonderful event and one that art collectors will remember for a long time, especially if they were fortunate enough to acquire one of the works. We are proud of our part in raising both funds and awareness for the Cure Parkinson’s Trust.”
