Art Exhibition and Sale
A local charity is proud to announce a very special event in April. At 6.30pm on 17th April, Nick Dakin MP will open the Lincolnshire House Art Exhibition in the Activities Centre at Lincolnshire House on Brumby Wood Lane, Scunthorpe. The exhibition will open on 18th April as well so that more people can view the artworks.
Lincolnshire House is a registered charity based in Scunthorpe, North Lincolnshire, providing residential, day and respite care services for adults with Cerebral Palsy.
The Creativity for All team in Lincolnshire House have been working hard since January to produce some really amazing results which will be on sale at the Exhibition. Many of the residents have been able to make individual art or join in supported activities to produce some beautiful original pieces. Their work will be displayed and sold alongside art donated by the local community. Appeals have gone out for donations of art for sale and local people have shown such originality and generosity, some even producing work especially for the exhibition.
Any unsold work will be sold on the internet, at future fundraising events and also via Cafe Indiependent in Scunthorpe, who will exhibit some of the pieces for sale.
All proceeds will go to the Lincolnshire House Wish Appeal, which has so far enabled the completion of phase 7 of a building project including a further Activities building, Norman Peet Centre, where one of the facilities is a dedicated Creativity for All room. This is where the art for the exhibition has been produced.
Photographs of artworks are on http://www.facebook.com/LincsHouse and on Twitter @LincolnshireH.
The event will be open from 6-9pm on 17th April and from 10am to 3pm on 18th. There will be a great variety of items for sale with prices starting at £5, but if you decide to buy something you will need either cash or cheque, as the charity don’t have card facilities.
Lincolnshire House hope that you will support this event and invite all your friends and family to join in with celebrating the achievements of all the artists.
