Art for Autism

Cambridge Artist Jo Tunmer, whom I exhibited with in the Christmas 10 show, has gathered a group of eleven artist friends and organised an invitation only art exhibition event for Thursday 20th May 2010 in aid of the National Autistic Society. She was inspired by her friend Claire Scott, who has a son with autism, who is walking the challenging Inca Trail between 22-31 May 2010 to raise funds for NAS.

The artists are:

  • Howard Guest - photographer
  • Peter Sutton - painter
  • Jo Tunmer - painter
  • Barbara Grafton - printmaker
  • Alison Hullyer - printmaker
  • David Brown - printmaker
  • Abbas Hashemi - sculpture
  • Louise Hashemi - painter
  • Kaine Kulczak - painter and printmaker
  • Craig Kerrecoe - painter
  • Rhiannon Thomas - textile arts, painter
We are all donating a piece of work for a raffle to be held on the night, with all proceeds going to the charity. 30% of our sales will also go to the NAS.

It is at Jo's house at 59 Highworth Avenue, Cambridge so we need to have an idea of numbers. This is a ticket only event so if you would like to come please let me know. Drinks and nibbles have been sponsored by the Co-op and Granta Dental have sponsored the cost of printing the invitations, so we're hoping to raise as much money as possible for the NAS.

I hope you can make this exciting event and please pass the details to anyone you feel might be interested.
