Secret Art Sale for Watford Mencap

posted 9 Sept 2013, 14:16 by Unknown user
The Watford Mencap Secret Art Sale is raising funds for Mencap in South-West Herts as well as offering visitors the chance to purchase a mini-masterpiece for only £35.

Venue: Café in the Park, Rickmansworth Aquadrome, WD3 1NB
Dates: Friday 27th September - evening drinks reception to launch the show
Saturday & Sunday 28th & 29th September – further opportunities to purchase artwork
Monday 30th – collection of purchases
  • In the Watford Mencap Secret Art Sale all works are displayed anonymously and only signed on the back, so the identity of the artist remains secret until after the artwork has been bought.
  • Amongst the artwork on offer will be pieces by talented names in the art world (Christiane Kubrick), celebrities (Anthony Head), not necessarily known for their artistic skills, members and clients of Watford Mencap and any other members of the local community who would like to contribute.
  • Artwork should be A6 postcard size on card, and can be in any medium - pencil drawing, cartoon, photograph, illustration, print making…or simply words of wisdom. It must be signed and dated on the back only and artwork would then be donated to Watford Mencap.
  • The name of all the artists will be on display throughout the exhibition as well as being publicised and promoted through the local paper and Watford Mencap’s various services. However, no-one will know who has done what, (which is where the ‘Secret’ comes in!). The identities will not be released until after the sale and exhibition.
  • All the money raised from the sale will go directly to Watford Mencap as costs for the event will be covered by sponsors.
If you, or someone you know, would like to contribute to the exhibition please send your postcard to: Liz Hizli, Community fundraiser, Watford Mencap, 105 High Street, Rickmansworth WD3 1AN or for further information contact Liz Hizli at Watford Mencap or 01923 713622
