Original art – for a snip!
Professional artists in north Leeds are clearing out their studios, attics and cellars and offering the public the chance to buy original art and fine craft – including many previous unseen works.
All proceeds from donations on the door, raffle, sales of refreshments and artists’ participation fees will go to St Gemma’s Hospice, based in Moortown, Leeds. This resource provides specialist medical and nursing care for local people with life threatening illnesses, predominantly cancer, and support for their families too. Care provided is free of charge to patients and their families so St Gemma’s relies on donations and local fundraising initiatives in the community.
‘Art Treasures Found Under the Bed’ will be on Saturday 10 November 2018, 10.00 am – 3.00 pm at Queens Hall, Church of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, 294 Harrogate Road Leeds LS17 6LE.
13 artists are supporting the event this year, many of whom have shown in galleries across the UK. The participants are Nick Claiden, Richard Locket, Janis Goodman, Keiko Harada, Tony Driver, Geof Radley, Catherine Adams, Debbie Samuel, Jo Dunn, Ellie McVerry, Gillian Kempner, Michael Cox and Ed Bennett.
They work in a wide range of media – paintings and drawings, printmaking, ceramics, jewellery, sculpture, wood, glass, textiles and photography.
Prices start from £1 only, ranging up to around £250 (cash or cheques, although some artists can process credit and debit cards).
Organiser Debbie Samuel said: “There’s no pressure to buy – all are welcome to come and support the event, talk to the artists and enjoy a cuppa.”
