Marie Curie has had a long history of helping for families across the UK with end of life care, and in support of their fantastic work Glasgow-based art gallery ScotlandArt.com has launched a charity exhibition of paintings by some of Scotland's most notable artists which will run throughout March at their gallery on Bath Street.
When asked for the inspiration for the exhibition, Gallery Manager Sarah Cox explained that "The charity is close to the hearts of all our staff at ScotlandArt.com; members of our families, like many across Glasgow, have benefitted from Marie Curie's exceptional circumstances. This is our way of giving something back".
The exhibition was organised to coincide with Marie Curie's 30th Annual Great Daffodil appeal, and was launched in front of a large turnout of friends and supporters of the gallery on Friday 11th March. Each painting sold has included a significant contribution towards helping Marie Curie continue their work.
Established in Glasgow in 1999, ScotlandArt.com carries the largest catalogue of original fine artwork in Scotland. The present exhibition offers a unique opportunity to survey a broad and eclectic overview of some of the finest Scottish art over the last seventeen years - from the emotive draughtsmanship of Patsy McArthur's photorealist charcoals to Pat Kramek's vibrant colourist works in oil - to select the perfect piece of original art to take home and, in so doing, to bolster the work of one of the UK’s leading charities.
The exhibition will run until 3rd April, with a complimentary whisky and wine tasting to celebrate the exhibition's success on Friday 1st April from 5PM to 7:30PM. To register your attendance at the event please call 0141 221 4502 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
