We have been involving young carers in our Hidden Potential fundraising project. At a workshop held in the inspirational venue of Gloucester Cathedral a group of young people produced some amazing pieces which will be displayed at Elmore Court in September alongside work by such esteemed artists as Nic Fiddian Green, Wolfgang Buttress and John Isaacs.
In addition to well-known artists, we have also received pieces from actors Penelope Keith and Simon Pegg, TV doctor Dr Hilary and celebrity music producer Magnus Fiennes.
We are hoping to gather up to 400 pieces of art – from oil to pencil, photography to buttons. It doesn’t matter – as long as it is only the size of a postcard.
We will displaying all of the art at Elmore Court, Gloucester in September, selling them blind for £50 each. Buyers will receive a raffle ticket and will then be allocated a postcard – it may have been donated by a well-known artist or a talented young carer, a volunteer or just a kind donor. Buyers will also be invited to the canapes and drinks reception which will mark the distribution of the art.
All funds, of course, will go towards our charity’s work with young carers across the county.
Details of the sale will be revealed later in the year BUT for now we need your help gathering together the art. Are you a talented artist? Do you know a famous artist? What about a celebrity who can sketch something special?
