MACMILLAN CANCER CARE 'SECRET ART SALE'

Herts Visual Arts Members have been invited to either donate a piece (12cm x 12cm) and/or come along to the drinks reception on 23rd June.

The Macmillan Secret Art Sale is raising funds for Macmillan Cancer Support whilst at the same time offering keen-eyed visitors the chance to buy a mini-masterpiece for only £45, with every penny going directly to the charity. In an exhibition with a difference, the pictures are all displayed anonymously and are only signed on the back. The artist remains a secret until after the paintings have been bought and the signatures are revealed.

Liberally sprinkled amongst the 100 plus pieces on offer will be paintings by some big names from the world of art and also work by sportsmen and celebrities not usually known for their artistic abilities.

The event kicks off with a Drinks Reception at the A&K Wilson Gallery at 11 Station Approach Harpenden on Thursday 23rd June 6-8pm (everybody most welcome!) when early birds will get the first opportunity to bag a bargain. Then the show moves on to the beautiful grounds of Bride Hall in Ayot St.Lawrence where they are available to the public to purchase during the Open Gardens on Sunday 26th June. Then back to Station Approach for the week, ending on Saturday 2nd July. So if you’d like to see some of the work already donated visit www.akwilsongallery.co.uk

Pay a hanging fee and collect a canvas to paint on

Artists wishing to take part pay Home Start a hanging fee of £7.50, payable to Home-Start Welwyn Hatfield.

Artists are encouraged to name their paintings.

Every picture on sale for £45
