Fundraising for Nepal: a Weekend of Films and Live Art

Good day art lovers! This week we have lots of exciting and important things that you will want to hear about.

In the wake of the tragic earthquake in Nepal which has killed more than 7,500 people and injured more than 14,500 we have decided to put on a Nepali film festival from the 15th to the 17th of this month. All proceeds will go to helping the relief effort. We have been in contact with the Nepali embassy and they recommended that the funds should go to the ‘Prime Minister Disaster Relief Fund’. We have some great feature length as well as short films from Nepal and we will announce the line-up shortly.nepalmainOur theme for the next weekly art battle will be ‘High Art Remastered’.  A famous masterpiece will be picked at random from a bowl. The two artists will depict their interpretation of it live in front of an audience. You know the drill by now. They will have 30 to complete this and then you decide who wins! Exciting as ever, there will be drinks and nibbles to be had so don’t miss this next installation!11063757_613926942040406_4919633769634180806_n We are extremely excited to announce that our new artist in residence is our Raw art battle participant James John Jolly who creates colourful artworks using oil paints, white spirit, water, his hands and various other tools.
