New parents Ellie Goulding and Caspar Jopling make it out to support Lily Lewis’ important exhibition opening
Last night, at Covent Garden’s Petersham Nurseries, new parents Ellie Goulding and Caspar Jopling made it out to support their friend, the artist Lily Lewis. Rightly so, given the event – a supper and auction – was to raise money for Refuge, a charity providing support for women and children experiencing domestic violence. The evening was designed to shine a light on the complicated and often silent suffering of domestic abuse victims – cases of which rose by over 61 per cent in 2020 during lockdown.
Lily’s minimalist works – focusing on the faces of actors and actresses from the silver screen of the 1930s and ’40s – were on display, later to be auctioned by Lord Dalmeny, the chairman of Sotheby’s, with all proceeds going to Refuge. The event marked the official launch of Lewis’ new exhibition, ‘Safe Places’, which is now open to the public.
The champagne flowed as guests including the Duke of Roxburghe and his fiancée Annie Green chatted alongside Camila Charriere and Rolling Stone star – as well as art aficionado – Ronnie Wood. Caspar Jopling announced the birth of a son, Arthur Ever Winter, with wife Ellie Goulding on 29 April by posting a newspaper clipping to his Instagram.
