Ringstead artists exhibit in London
Five artists from the Hunstanton area have had paintings accepted for the Women's Lockdown Art exhibition, and are generously donating part of the proceeds of any sales to small London charity Women + Health which has been supporting isolated and vulnerable women, including those who are survivors of domestic violence and rape, for over 30 years.
Sally Anne Fitter, Barbara King, Helga Joergens, Julie Clark and Pandora Mond are all taking part in what is now a virtual show and sale, after plans for a 'physical' exhibition at the Zabludowicz Collection in London was shelved this week due to the announcement of fresh Government restrictions over coronavirus.
The exhibition is launched on Wednesday, November 11, with a video shown online at 7pm .
The exhibition is co-curated by Cass Wedd, who is also an artist from Ringstead, and a long-standing trustee of Women + Health.
Elizabeth Neilson, Director of Zabludowicz Collection, said: “It’s our pleasure to be able to give a platform to so many artists and to help raise much needed funds for Women + Health. The range of responses is a wonderful testament to the creativity and flexibility of women in times of hardship.”
Gemma Tighe, Director of Women + Health, said: “I’m thrilled so many women artists have donated work to support our organisation, which like many small charities, has been hit hard by the financial challenges brought about by Covid-19. Each piece of art purchased helps a woman receive support from Women + Health.”
