100 Pebbles project continues to move forward
I am pleased announce that the day is set and challenge is firmly set.
The Beatson are fully behind the challenge to paint a single piece of artwork that will be made up of 100 single seascape paintings. Each individual work will be 8 x 8 inches in size , making the total size of the work approx 14 foot wide and over 4 foot high.
The date is set Sunday 24th July and the location will be the Art Exposure Gallery due to the kindness and support of its proprietor Frances Lowrie. The work will be created in one day and will be part of Glasgow's Merchant City Festival.
Millers Art shop Glasgow have agreed to supply the paint for the day and I am still on the look out for financial help to source the stretched canvas to make up the the 100 pieces.
The Beatson Pebble Appeal is a £10M fundraising campaign to build the Beatson Translational Research Centre (TRC); the final element in the creation of the Glasgow Centre for Cancer Research.

I know its going to be a big challenge , but well worth it . Each piece of work will retail for £20, making the target of £2000 for all 100 pieces !
More info and news to come.
