Fundraising Studio Sale Days
We are pleased to announce a series of Fundraising Studio Sale days on Saturdays from 2nd February until 30th March.
Local artists will be selling their work in a fund raising effort to support the further development of new, reasonably priced studios at the Charity’s premises in Nile St and Villiers St, Sunniside and to fund new community exhibitions
The Sales will include work by artists from across the City and promises to offer the chance to pick up some great original art at amazing prices and will include studio glass, contemporary ceramics, photography, fine art, jewellery and more.
Creative Cohesion residents, glass maker Roger Tye and ceramicist Philippa Whiteside, are two artists who will be selling work at the event. “The gallery sale will be a great opportunity to promote our own businesses as well as encourage people to visit the studios who might not have thought to do so previously” said Roger.
“It’s also a chance to help contribute financially to the charity which has provided a lot of support and allowed many artists to operate their practices profitably.”
Philippa added “As residents we want the charity to be as successful as possible so that it can continue to develop and so that we can hopefully explore new opportunities in the future. We hope that some of the funds raised will go towards increasing engagement with the local community by subsidising art classes or running open days for the public to come and make art with us.”
Alongside the residents will be a selection of other local artists based in and around Sunderland.
“We have such a diverse creative population in the City so we hope that customers will find the range of work for sale not only interesting but great value too” said Roger.
The sales will run from 10am to 4pm every Saturday from 2nd February until the end of March at Creative Cohesion, 20-21 Nile Street, Sunniside, Sunderland, SR1 1EY.
