Julia has been amazingly busy hanging the 461 returned pieces and they look wow!
The Art Project is a community project that was launched in January 2017 and with the kind help from Cuplas who paid for 1,000 5x5" canvases, we began distributing them free of charge around the Island.
The event is proving to be very successful in participation with all one thousand canvases already handed out and many more being purchased by individual artist and creators, using their imagination and coming up with some amazing pieces!
You can see some of the contributors by following these links.
With thanks to Jane from the Manx Art Directory, Julia from the Hodgson Loom Gallery and John from the Laxey Woollen Mills, we are very excited to announce that we will be displaying all submitted pieces in the Hodgson Loom Gallery from 26th June until 15th July. That will give everyone and their families/friends an amazing 3 week period where you can visit, take your time to look at the amazing works of art and to also purchase any favourites.
Julia and John have very kindly waived the commission they would usually take on selling any art work and this amazingly kind gesture means that ALL the money raised from selling the completed pieces will go to Manx Cancer Help, stay on the Island and will directly help someone who is suffering from Cancer and needs the help of our Psychotherapists.
