An exhibition & auction to fund art workshops for people with dementia.
24th May — 16th June 2019
The Great Grey is a creative project for people with dementia and their carers that launched in 2018 with seed funding from Age Unlimited. Based at the Hart Club — a gallery and project space dedicated to championing neurodiversity with the Arts — where weekly art workshops have flourished under the guidance of art psychotherapist Cressida Brotherstone.
Having built creative confidence within this community, the Hart Club are fundraising to secure that the workshops continue and thrive. The Hart Club has recently established print-making and ceramics facilities which will support the further development and research around the modes of art-making that are most effective for people with Dementia. The ongoing regularity of the group will further nurture the individuals creative flair and the collective well-being of all attendees.
A selection of London’s finest burgeoning artists have kindly donated a piece of their artwork to our fundraiser auction. This inter-generational support and generosity is testimony to the environment Hart Club fosters by championing diversity within the Arts, collaborative methods of working and creative exchanges.
Included in the auction is a print and Catalogue Raisonné from the internationally renowned Royal Academy artist William Scott CBE (1913-1989). Scott was one of the leading British artists of his generation and continued to work until he died of Alzheimer’s Disease. These pieces have been generously donated by the William Scott Foundation in solidarity with our project.
The Hart Club invite you to experience artwork made over the past year by participants of The Great Grey and support the future of these workshops by bidding on work generously donated by by the following artists:
