A fundraising art exhibition for mental health charity Maybe Southwest was a huge success raising over £5,000!
Room 212 owner Sarah Thorp organised the event and was thrilled by the results. She plans to launch more fundraising exhibitions in the near future and said: “Twenty-six artworks were donated, which we displayed in our window and gallery for the whole of November and then showed in the Room 212 garden during the North Bristol Art Trail. The prize draw took place on the Sunday afternoon of the Art Trail and attracted a big crowd.”
First prize of a large painting of the Bristol Suspension Bridge by Huw Richards Evans went to a very surprised and happy visitor who had come up from London to visit his aunt. Another painting by Huw was won by Lisa Coleman who plays foster mum, Cam Lawson, in the popular children's TV show Tracy Beaker. Lisa says a new series has just been filmed in Bristol and is due for release very soon.
