The Art Centre has been involved in various charity projects over the years.
The artists of The Art Centre donated more than 90 artworks this year. Some artworks were donated to Avril Elizabeth Home to decorate their facilities. The other works were sold at a Poetry and Painting fundraising event in aid of the Epic Foundation. The poet, Graham Brownlow-Hewett, gave the artists of The Art Centre free rein to interpret his poetry into beautiful paintings. The event was held with the help of Sha-Mani Lodge that sponsored their beautiful venue for the evening. Click here to read about it in the Alberton Record.
