Art and beyond
General: An exhibition, in a Bath city centre gallery, will display original paintings by 3 artists (incl. yours truly) alongside information highlighting the work of Compassion – an international child development charity. Compassion seeks to enable children, in impoverished circumstances, develop new skills and opportunities through support and learning. The aim; to help them build a brighter future. Compassion hopes this event will help 100 children through new sponsorship and all profits will go to support the charity's work.
Personal: As an artist and designer it can be challenging to live beyond my own concerns. When approached to be part of this art exhibition/charity event I recognised that part of any gift (creative or otherwise) is to be given. Bread broken and shared. Not that I find it easy as I'm more selfish than I care to admit. And, by showing my work in a good city centre gallery I will reap some personal benefit. However, who knows what positive outcomes are generated from our 'small' endeavours.
