Mending Broken Hearts Exhibition and Art Auction


in aid of the British Heart Foundation


Wetpaint Gallery exhibition dates:


Thursday 10 February - Saturday 12 March 2011


Art Auction and Lunch at Calcot Manor Saturday 12 February, 12pm


In February 2011 Wetpaint Gallery is pleased to be associated with the British Heart Foundations major fundraising appeal Mending Broken Hearts. This appeal is one of the most important fundraising efforts ever undertaken by the British Heart Foundation (BHF). Its goal is simple: to raise the 50million needed to fund research that could literally mend the broken hearts of millions, in as little as 10 years time.


To mark this event and to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the BHF, a fantastic array of leading contemporary British artists, have each createda special artwork on the theme of Mending Broken Hearts.Artists include Sir Peter Blake, Maggie Hambling, Donald Hamilton Fraser, John Hoyland, Gary Hume and Barbara Rae.


In addition, Wetpaint Gallery will be hosting a special fundraising lunch and art auction on 12 February at Calcot Manor, featuring artwork on a heart theme by some of the gallerys most popular artists including Anita Klein, Lee Crew and Vanda Harvey. Profits will be donated to the BHF. The artwork can be previewed at the launch of the BHF exhibition on Thursday 10th February, from 6-8pm at Wetpaint Gallery. Please contact the gallery for lunch tickets (35 each) on 01285 644990.


Valentines weekend is the perfect time to launch this exhibition as the gallery will be full of hearts says gallery owner Celia Wickham. We hope that people will buy the hearts for their loved ones whilst supporting this very valuable and worthwhile cause.


Entry to the exhibition is free and all works will be for sale. Interest free loans are available and a selection of work can be viewed on the website:
