Christmas 200 Exhibition

Time: 6:00PM
Date: November 22nd 2017
Location: Black Canvas Gallery, Holywood
Black Canvas in association with The Mary Peters Trust invites you to one of Northern Irelands’ most exciting exhibitions of the year, The Christmas 200!
The Black Canvas Christmas 200 Art Exhibition will host more than 200 original paintings by over 100 elite artists from across the UK & Ireland in a bid to raise £10,000 for the Mary Peters Trusts’ race to a million campaign.
The exhibition will showcase many of Northern Irelands’ most established and well-known artists along with a carefully selected few from Southern Ireland and mainland UK with all the artwork being sold at only £250 each.
With many of the artists exhibiting normally selling their work for substantially more, this is a rare opportunity to purchase an original painting by some top names.
In contrast to this the gallery is encouraging everyone to simply “Buy it because you love it”! Gallery partners Hugh and Paul said “Standardising the size and price allows some emerging and lesser known artists to sit side by side with some of the most established names in this show. Northern Ireland has some truly amazing artists, both emerging and established. This exhibition allows the quality of their work to speak for itself”.
There is something for everyone.  The feel good factor in the run up to Christmas is knowing that £50 for every painting purchased will be going to a very worthwhile cause. The size and price will make the perfect Christmas Gift, with bespoke framing and gift wrapping available for that special someone.
Dame Mary said, “I have just recently redecorated and I will be picking something that suits my new room, who knows who the artist will be, that’s part of the fun”.
