AOH Preview Evening

Wednesday, November 25th, 2015

We are very fortunate to be the chosen charity for Sainsbury’s West Hove this year and on Friday 20th Nov, as part of Brighton and Hove’s Christmas Open Houses, we held a Private View of our art exhibition in the restaurant at Sainsbury’s West Hove.  The exhibition will run for a month and Friday was a chance for invited guests and members to be the first to view the art.

Half of the artwork was made by members during our Art for All day in October and half of it was kindly donated by friends and family of The Centre.  The exhibition was beautifully hung and arranged by Hilary, who worked tirelessly to bring it about.  Somebody else who worked tirelessly was Jill who made a wonderful selection of canapes for the evening.  We felt quite the artists, enjoying the artwork and nibbling on canapes.  It really was most civilised.

We were delighted that Sara McLafferty from Remap, a charity that custom-makes adaptations for disabled people, was one of the guests.  She was able to talk with members about our current project to make a piece of equipment for wheelchairs that will act as a giant paintbrush.

Again, we had excellent support from Sainsbury’s themselves and the store manager, Mick Ingledew, was incredibly enthusiastic about the project.

In terms of selling the art, a silent auction will be held at the end of the exhibition and this will raise valuable funds for the Centre.  A couple of members have already put their bids in the box – for the same pieces of art!  Hopefully there won’t be too much in-fighting!

The exhibition runs until 13 December so do pop along and enjoy the art and a coffee in the restaurant and ease the experience of your weekly shop.
