Artists wanted for fundraising art show and sale
A Chatteris charity group has put a shout out for local artists as it plans a fundraising event.
Community Defibrillators for Chatteris are holding a fundraising Art Show and Sale, on Saturday July 20, 10am to 3pm, at the Bricstan Rooms, at the parish church, and are calling out to all local artists to take part.
Paintings, using any medium and size, will be on display for members of the public to view and hopefully purchase. All proceeds, minus an entrance fee per painting, will be paid to the artist, so it is hoped that everybody will benefit from the day.
Entrance for the public will be by donation on the door. Refreshments; sale table and tombola will also be available, with the proceeds going towards funding a third defibrillator for Chatteris.
Entrance forms and further details can be obtained from; firstname.lastname@example.org
