Two local artists hold exhibition to support research into dementia, mental illness, and cancer
Two local artists, Emma Morrissey and David Vane are holding an exhibition to raise awareness and sell their art in aid of charities supporting three of the most common illnesses in the UK today dementia, mental illness, and cancer.
David Vane is better known as founder/director of SBGN, a company that has helped over 200 people to start their businesses. David says that he has not considered himself an artist but new techniques and technology have enabled him to express his view of the environment in different ways.
David was moved to contact The Alzheimer’s Society after hearing several programmes on the radio about the struggles of carers and people who have dementia and he wanted to find a practical way to support research.
The exhibition will be held over two days, and it has been extended for the MacMillan coffee morning on 29th September
Macmillan Coffee morning: Friday 29th September Time: 10am – 12 am
Venue: Stella Maris Centre, St Michalis Square SO14 2AH
FREE admission on both days.
(A percentage of sales of paintings, prints and cards will go to the respective charities. Everyone welcome)
