art at five Gallery Celebrates 10th Anniversary

Published On September 26, 2013 | By We Love Brighton | Theatre & Arts Features

art at five, Brighton’s most successful gallery, is celebrating its 10th anniversary with a special exhibition and unique charity event, ten for 10, in aid of Brighton-based charity drop4drop.

Ten of the gallery’s most popular artists have each donated an original painting, with raffle tickets at just £10! Paintings are valued from £300 to £1000, so ten for 10 offers the chance to own an artwork for a fraction of the price, whilst contributing to a worthwhile cause.

drop4drop is a hugely important charity working with people that have no access to clean water. It runs projects that, for as little as £1, can provide a person with safe, clean drinking water for life. Over one billion people in the world do not have access to any clean water and drop4drop’s mission is to help alleviate the global water crisis.

Through ten for 10, art at five hope to raise enough money to fund a well for the Chennavaram community in East India who currently have to walk for 2km each day just to collect contaminated water from unprotected sources.

Prize paintings have been generously donated by artists Yvonne Coomber, Louise Brooks, Nick Vivian, Philippe Aird, Tina Davies, Maureen Greenwood, Lisa Ridgers, Natasha Barnes, Deborah Flueeler-Jones and David Walker.

The ten prize pieces will be on display in the gallery from 28th September and raffle tickets will be available to purchase in the gallery or online at www.artatfive.com/raffle.

The raffle will close on Monday October 14th and winners will be announced on the art at five website on Tuesday 22nd.

10th anniversary celebrations will take place at the gallery over the weekend of Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th October, and a new collection of artwork by the ten donating artists will be exhibited alongside the prize paintings.

art at five would like to invite everyone to come along and celebrate their milestone birthday with them over the weekend of October 12 – 13th. Drinks and refreshments will be provided by Brighton café Moksha, a recent finalist in the Brighton and Hove Food and Drink awards, and the famous Brighton chocolatiers Choccywoccydoodah, with award-winning wines from Barefoot Wines, who will be introducing their new Pink Moscato bubbly.
