CHILDREN 1ST to benefit from visual arts
Wednesday 21 September 2011
On 1 and 2 October, 12 artists from the WASPS Studio space, St Mary’s Mill in Selkirk will come together for their annual exhibition.
The local event, part of a national weekend of WASPS exhibitions throughout Scotland, will this year be raising awareness and vital funds for the work of CHILDREN 1ST.
The 12 artists taking part are an eclectic mix, and work in a variety of media including painting, sculpture and printed textiles. The work ranges from figurative to abstract, and includes the unique style of Moy Mackay, who combines traditional felting techniques in a painterly way to creative vibrant landscapes.
Matthew Middler, Senior Regional Fundraiser, CHILDREN 1ST said: "We are delighted to have been chosen as the benefiting charity for the WASPS Selkirk exhibition this year. It is only with the support of the communities we work in that the good work of CHILDREN 1ST can continue.
"Last year we supported 5,922 families, children and young people in our local services. Our work in the Scottish Borders continues to be in demand and we would like to thank the WASPS Selkirk studio for supporting us through this event. I am thoroughly looking forward to a weekend of art, culture and community."
