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.
