Art For Erskine in Heart of City During Glasgow’s Special Summer

Veteran artThe veterans’ charity Erskine has once again been nominated as beneficiary of a fabulous Art Exhibition to be held in the heart of Glasgow this summer when the city celebrates hosting the Commonwealth Games.

The exhibition which runs from Thursday 24th July to Sunday 3rd August  has been organised in conjunction with The Studio: Fine Art Company, and  will include contemporary artwork and sculpture from acclaimed Scottish artists, as well as a selection of work by lesser-known and up-and-coming young artists.

This year’s exhibition ties in with the Commonwealth Games and Glasgow Merchant City Festival.  Held in the prestigious Trades Hall of Glasgow, Glassford Street in Merchant City, the exhibition will be at the heart of the cities summer festivities, with the artwork capturing the essence of the vibrant city and its people.

Erskine will receive a welcome boost to vital funds as a percentage of every sale will be donated to the charity which cares for over 1,100 ex-Service men and women every year.

A range of well-known exhibiting artists such as Peter Howson OBE, Graham McKean, Ian Rawnsley, Neil Simpson, Gerard Burns, Ryan Mutter and Heather Stewart provide an excellent array of art to choose from.

Purchasing from the exhibition not only provides a lasting legacy of a unique piece of art, but  makes a wonderful contribution towards the charity’s work of caring for veterans in five specialised homes throughout Scotland.

Erskine Fundraiser Lesley Miller said: “We are once again delighted to be the beneficiaries of this fantastic event.  Every painting sold and every penny raised will help Erskine to continue to provide the high standard of care for which the charity is renowned.  It is such a special summer for Glasgow with the Commonwealth Games in the city at the same time as our exhibition so we are looking forward to visitors from all over the Commonwealth viewing the artwork on sale.”

The exhibition is open from 10am – 6pm every day except on Sunday when it closes at 2pm.  Entry is free.
