The Original Art Lottery at the Arts Centre

We are very pleased to be holding a lottery of original art at the Arts Centre, to coincide with the Swindon Festival of Literature. 40 works have art have been donated by Swindon Open Studios artists, friends of ours, Eileen Cooper RA, the first female Keeper at the Royal Academy, who currently has an exhibition at Swindon Museum and Art Gallery.
Sara Lee was also kind enough to donate one of her glorious landscapes.
Terry Humphries kindly mounted the framed prints on boards which he hung on the hooks on the Arts Centre wall kindly provided by Swindon Artists' Forum, and they were left covered in white paper until Tuesday 3 May at 2pm when Matt Holland, Festival Director unveiled them:
 Above here's Matt giving the speech with Rachel Pryor and Terry looking on
 There are 3 boards, here's Matt unveiling the middle one:

 And the third one at the far end.
 You can just about spot the Eileen Cooper painting, it's the middle one on the second row.
 The artworks are superb, to enter the lottery, you will need to go into the Arts Centre, put £2 in an envelope for one ticket, or £5 for 3 entries, or any multiple of £5. Add your name address and contact details to the envelope and place it in the postal box in the reception area. Proceeds to Prospect Hospice, and the draw will be this Friday 13 May at 7.30pm after Cristina Odone's talk.
