Scotland’s Biggest Charity Art Exhibition Celebrates Twenty-Fifth Year
Scotland’s most prolific charity art exhibition, the Ayrshire Art Exhibition, is celebrating 25 years of fundraising for Save the Children and is back bigger and better than ever this Autumn.
Taking place from 15th October until 11th November, the annual exhibition will be held at the Maclaurin Galleries in the grounds of the beautiful Rozelle House and will welcome the work of over 250 artists, and hanging around 400 stunning original works of art.
Organised and run by the Ayr and district branch of Save the Children, the exhibition has raised over £30,000 each year in previous years, aiding the charities great work in Scotland and further afield.
Robin Anderson, Convener of Save the Children Ayr Art Committee, said: “We are thrilled to be marking a quarter of a century this year and we hope this will be our most rewarding exhibition yet. We’re lucky to yet again be welcoming some incredible artists and will be showcasing a wide variety of works; something to suit all tastes and budgets.
“For the second year running, we will also be exhibiting cameo cards; unframed, postcard sized painting that proved extremely popular last year. We’re proud to say that all proceeds from sales of these will go to Save the Children.
“I’d also like to thank our tremendous sponsors, Frazer Coogans and Christie Financial Planning Limited. We’re forever grateful for your support and helping make this fantastic fundraising event a reality.
“We look forward to welcoming you all and raising essential funds for Save the Children!”
Admission and parking at the event is free, and refreshments are available in the gallery’s coffee shop.
Opening hours are 10am to 4.30pm Monday to Saturday and 12pm to 4.30pm on Sundays.
