Fleet are proud to be sponsoring The Edinburgh Macmillan Art Show which is back again for the ninth year running. This year sees Macmillan celebrating their centenary as one of the UK’s longest running charities supporting those affected by cancer. The exhibition will feature around 300 works of art from both professional and amateur artists across Scotland, with prices ranging from
£30 to £4000.
Artists will include Dame Elizabeth Blackadder, Moy Mackay who has donated a piece created from felted merino wool entitled “Highland Dream” as the exhibition’s raffle prize, Damian Callan, Ann Oram and Lynn Rodgie.
Macmillan has extended the 2011 show from the usual four day event to a fantastic nine day long art show and sale in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support. The event is being held in the historic Dovecot Studios in Infirmary Street between Thursday 6 Oct to Saturday 15 Oct (but not Sunday 9).
All the money raised will help fund vital services provided by the local cancer charity.
Craig Phipps, Managing Director of Fleet said:
“Having seen first hand the extensive support that Macmillan provides, we are delighted to be a title sponsor for this superb exhibition and fully endorse the organisation’s vital work”.
