SEPTEMBER 25th – 28th, 10am – 6pm
Ballroom Arts, Aldeburgh, Suffolk.
FEAST is an exhibition of artists and sculptors inspired by the theme of food, dining and the natural world.
The exhibition is organised by ART FOR CURE, a national charity raising money for leading breast cancer research and support services. Founded by Belinda Gray, after her own breast cancer diagnosis, ART FOR CURE had its first exhibition in 2014. Intended as a one-off art exhibition in Belinda’s Suffolk home, ART FOR CURE is now a registered national charity with an event team, board of experienced trustees and over 150 volunteers. The money raised is channelled into national research projects and breast cancer services in Suffolk. The charity has raised over £830,000 through exhibitions at Glemham Hall and Somerleyton Hall in Suffolk, Bankside Gallery next to Tate Modern in London and Peter Pears Gallery in Aldeburgh.
Giles Ward was delighted to be invited to exhibit his distinctive sea life artworks at the exhibition. Giles has created a number of bespoke pieces to celebrate the Suffolk coast’s renowned sea food heritage, including ‘Suffolk Mackerel’ and ‘Cromer Shore Crab’. The proceeds from every sale of artwork go directly to support the work of ART FOR CURE. Giles is proud to support this wonderful fund-raising event and has contributed eight paintings to the exhibition.
Ballroom Arts is a new venue for the arts in Aldeburgh, a much loved and famous Suffolk seaside town known for its many cultural connections and stunning shingle beach. This historic building has now been redesigned to provide two venues under one roof. FEAST will be the first exhibition in this new and innovative space and is on from September 25th to 28th.
