Art for Cure, returns this spring following the staggering success of the 2014 show, which generated more than £100,000 for Breakthrough-Breast Cancer.
More than 80 well-known artists and sculptors will be exhibiting at the event, which will be held in the magnificent grounds and stately residence of Glemham Hall, Suffolk from Saturday 30th April – Monday 2nd May 2016.
The exhibition will showcase exclusive pieces from popular names including Vanessa Gardiner, Henrietta Dubrey, Maggi Hambling, Michael Speller, Carol Peace and Paul Vanstone, as well as a superb selection of artists drawn from Suffolk’s great wealth of talent. All have agreed to donate a percentage of their sales to support in the cure and care of breast cancer.
Art for Cure means an incredible amount to Belinda and me, it’s not just an exhibition – it’s a show which brings together so much talent from across the country and lets the community be part of it. We have 40 small, local businesses supporting us as well as over 100 local people volunteering at the event.
Breast cancer is the most common cancer in the UK – around 1,000 women will die from the disease this month in the UK alone. We’re determined to help put a stop to this and the fantastic exhibition – Art for Cure – will help us to do so.
This year, monies raised will be supporting research into finding a cure for breast cancer and also a series of Art For Cure Workshops, which will be set up to help support local breast cancer patients through their treatment, by offering restorative art and sculpture workshops.
A number of high profile celebrities have shown their support for the charity by painting a canvas to be auctioned at the event. “Make Your Mark” canvases have been received from Ed Sheeran, Mark Rylance, Andy Murray, Joan Collins and Ottolenghi to name a few.These will be available to bid for on-line from mid April and also at the show.
There will also be a selection of small canvases donated by the artists themselves to buy by secret auction, children’s activities throughout the day, coffees, lunches, from Chef Peter Harrison and afternoon tea will be served in the marquee each day.
A donation of £5.00 per car is requested for car parking and an Exhibition Catalogue – all proceeds go directly to charity.
Please come along and support us!!
and if you cannot make it, you can always donate – thank you it all helps.
The exhibition will take place throughout the bank holiday weekend:
Saturday 30th April – Monday 2nd May 2016 10.00am – 5.00pm.
