PREVIEW & PARTY: ‘Make Your Mark’
Saturday 17 November 2018
To celebrate the art of observation with our ‘New Perspectives’ show we are inviting famous artists, celebrities and members of the public to start with a dot and complete their own pencil drawing and return it to us by 10 November.
The drawings will be included in our exhibition and judged by art critic and historian Richard Cork and Professor Anita Taylor, the executive dean of Bath School of Art and Design at the gala evening and preview on Saturday 17 November. All works are being sold at £25 each to raise money for the New English Art Club and The Heatherley School of Fine Art and Drawing Projects UK. The drawings will be shown anonymously but signed on the back, so come along to the preview and peruse the collection and at the sale on Sunday morning at 10am you could be walking away with a work by a famous artist or celebrity.
7 – 7:30pm
