I’ve just sent off my contribution (left) for the Twitter Art Exhibit 2017. It’s an encaustic eco print and will be on sale for £30 between 2-19 April 2017 at The ArtsHouse, 14 Rother Street, Stratford upon Avon. 10:00-4:00.
The proceeds of the exhibition will go to the charity Molly Olly’s Wishes.
“Molly Olly’s Wishes was founded in 2011 by Rachel and Tim Ollerenshaw. Their daughter Molly Ollerenshaw was diagnosed aged 3 with a Wilms tumour and despite a long and brave 5 year fight, died in 2011.
They spent a large part of those years in and out of hospital and soon realised that many of the patients they met did not have the emotional or financial support that they had for Molly and her siblings. Molly wanted to help these children and so Molly Olly’s Wishes was born.”
Tickets for the opening night are available via Eventbrite. From Eventbrite:
“TWITTER ART EXHIBIT (TAE) is being held in the UK for the first time! Next year it will be somewhere else in the world supporting another worthwhile charity.
The Opening Night of TAE17 in Stratford Upon Avon is a great opportunity to buy some amazing art from our TAE17 artists from all around the world and, at the same time, to support the charity Molly Olly’s Wishes who help support children with terminal and serious illness and their families. This year TAE has had it’s biggest uptake since the event started 6 years ago with 1300 artists registered from 62 countries!
Artist David Sandum will be attending the event from Norway and will be giving a presentation about how and why TAE was set up and about the charities it has helped over the years and what the future holds for TAE.
You are invited to the OPENING NIGHT on the 1 April 2017 in Stratford upon Avon and we hope that you will invite others you know who could enjoy the event. Please come along to purchase the cards and help us raise funds for Molly Olly’s Wishes. (Cost of cards – £30 each of 4 for £100). ALL the proceeds from the sale of the cards goes direct to the charity.
There will be an AUCTION of a wonderful original etching by Norman Ackroyd RA and a sketch by Sir Ian McKellen on the night.
