Art for ASBAH
ASBAH now Shine

Art for ASBAH exhibition kicked off with a VIP reception on Friday 23rd April 2010, with the likes of Stewart Jackson (MP), Bob Symns (CEO Posh FC), Amanda Davidson-Young (MD, Peterborough ET) Billy Reid (MD Absolute Property Services), Dr Clive Morten (Deputy Chair of Opportunity Peterborough), Gillian Beasley (Chief Executive of Peterborough City Council), Richard Astle (Director of the Greater Peterborough Partnership)

To complement the works of art on the wall, by Shaun Pitchers and myself, the images were also shown on the big screen at the far end of the room. With a touch of classical music and smooth jazz in the background, enhancing the ambience of the exhibition. The room lends itself to some natural soft light, which works really well for a gallery. On Saturday the exhibition was open to the public continuing the mood set on Friday. In the afternoon, Poets United added some flavour with their colourful poetry, along with poet laureate Mixy, dropping his verses. Blues Mike then rounded off the event with some tuneful guitar blues. I was delighted that the Mayor and Gillian Beasley both bought one of my paintings. Thanks to all those who made it to the exhibition, your support was much appreciated. The raffle prize 'Life on the Embankment' was won by Mr Ian Morley. Everyone agreed that the event was very successful - not only as an opportunity for us artists to display our work but also to raise funds and awareness for the charity. With 15% of all sales going to charity, the exhibition netted just over £300.
