Just a quick update on the latest donations in this joint post covering both June and July. After receiving some good feedback on the previous donation to a local gallery I decided to support several local art related projects for a few more months. Many art charities operating on behalf of art spaces and events are often under huge pressures to continue their vital services and to quickly bring in the funds to enable this.

 

The Art House

The Art House provides time, space and support for artists and associates to develop their critical practice and professional careers. Everyone is welcome to experience contemporary visual art and learn about the practice of being an artist through a year-round programme of exhibitions and events.The Art House is a visual arts development agency and registered charity established in 1994 in response to the lack of facilities for disabled visual artists.

May’s donation went to The Hepworth Wakefield –  an art gallery in Wakefield, West Yorkshire, England, which opened on 21 May 2011. The gallery is situated on the south side of the River Calder and takes its name from artist and sculptor Barbara Hepworth who was born and educated in the city.

 

One of the most significant and exciting places for sculpture in Europe’ (Will Gompertz, BBC)

The Hepworth Wakefield’s 1,600 square metres (17,000 sq ft) of purpose-built gallery space houses 44 plaster and aluminum working models donated by Dame Barbara Hepworth’s family and temporary exhibitions of contemporary art. Items from Wakefield’s art collection which spans the 16th century to the present day are on display, including works by Henry Moore, who was born in Castleford in the Wakefield district, Ben Nicholson, Graham Sutherland, Paul Nash, Jacob Epstein, Walter Sickert, Anthony Caro, Ivon Hitchens, LS Lowry, and David Hockney.

April’s donation goes to Beat Autism – an organisation dedicated to helping parents and carers with children on the Autistic Spectrum. Their aim is to make a major positive difference to these families lives.

 

Autism is a condition which affects the way a person responds to the world around them.

The label is given to people who have untypical social interactions, communication and have some restrictive and/or repetitive behaviour. It is called a spectrum condition because the symptoms of autism can vary such a lot from person to person.

 

Some Facts About Autism

  • Autism affects about one child in every hundred(1)
  • Around four times as many boys as girls are likely to be diagnosed with autism.
  • For a diagnosis of autism, the behaviours must begin before the age of three.

I’m happy to say March donation will go to Vic Bignell, 94 year old D-Day veteran who served his country for four years during the war. Recently he fell over, breaking his nose, rib and had lots of cuts and bruises.

Someone stole £200 from his wallet leaving just £20 when he was in hospital. He had just withdrawn his pension before falling over.

Extra money goes towards his and fellow comrades next visit to Europe for their annual D-Day pilgramage. This year they will be going to Belguim to see the battlefields, graves and various landmarks.
