On the 21st of December Sweet ‘Art, a not for profit art organisation based in London dedicated to supporting artists and the arts, will be hosting a fundraising event, The Art Take Away, to raise funds for a new London-based charity called Outskirts. Founded by Sweet ‘Art director and Art Psychotherapist Corrina Eastwood, Outskirts primary focus will be providing inclusive support to women and those who feel marginalised by providing arts therapies, support groups and advice services. To launch the charity and raise money for the much needed services Outskirts hopes to provide, at a time when vital services for the marginalised are being cut, we will be hosting an exciting art event where guests will be given the opportunity to view and purchase art by talented and established artists at very affordable prices. The Art Take Away will showcase hundreds of art works to suit all tastes, primarily small works on paper, which can be chosen over a glass of mulled wine and a mince pie and taken away on purchase. This will be art to go! Contributing artists so far include Bobby Baker (who’s touring exhibition Diary Drawings premiered at the Wellcome Collection and who’s recent live show ‘Mad Gyms and Kitchens’was commissioned as part of the 2012 cultural Olympiad) Felt artist Lucy Sparrow (of recent Sex Shop fame) Illustrator Maya Wild (who includes Adidas, New York Magazine and The Rolling Stones as her clients) Mark Whithorn (Winner of the British Institution Award at the Royal Academy of Arts), Sue Burns (BP Portrait Award Finalist) and designer Shara Hayz (who includes Vogue and MTV as clients.) At Sweet ‘Art we pride ourselves on hosting fun and approachable art events and The Art Take Away will reflect this along with Outskirts own ethos, by pricing works that are normally sold for thousands, at a minimum donation of £10, £20 or £30. Its gourmet art at McDonald’s prices at The Art Take Away! For those who can not make the event night at Espacio Gallery, selected works will be available to purchase online for the weekend prior to The Art Take Away, going live on the 19th of December. A section of Sweet ‘Arts Sweet Shop, at www.wearesweetart.com, will be dedicated to Outskirts fundraising efforts. So do join us on the 21st for a mince pie, glass of mulled wine and that lovely warm feeling that comes with supporting a very good cause while bagging a guilt free bargain!
