As part of a new and exciting fundraising initiative, The Settlement has harnessed the creative talents of its tutors and students to produce unique pieces of art that go on display at a special exhibition on Saturday 1 December.
Over the past few months more than 140 unique pieces of art have been designed on individual canvas squares that will then be offered for sale at the price of £20.
Taking place from 10am until 4pm at The Settlement, 229 Nevells Road, the exhibition gives a colourful insight into the high standard of work produced by students and tutors involved in the diverse range of art courses available. Admission is free.
“Firstly, my thanks to all those who have supported the exhibition by taking time to design and create a totally unique piece of artwork. Part of the fun will be that buyers will not know whether their piece is by a professional artist, a fellow student or a complete novice,” explained Settlement Manage Sonia Weston.
She added: “Please support us in this new venture; the quality of work is exceptional and there are so few opportunities to buy an original piece of art at such a competitive price.
“The Settlement relies on fundraising to help keep student costs down and sustain our premises which is a grade II listed building. Events like these help safeguard our future and ensure we can afford to offer as wide a choice of courses and workshops as possible.”
