Following on from the charities previous successful fundraising events, the exhibition, titled She, will raise money to help fund breast cancer research and help those suffering with breast cancer.

Held over the weekend June 3rd and June 4th June, at the Garage Gallery in Aldeburgh, the inspired collection of paintings, sculpture, ceramics and prints, will be all about women.

Belinda Gray, Chair and Co-founder of Art For Cure said: “Women are at the heart of Art For Cure as we raise money to support vital national research to help find a cure for breast cancer, as well as donating to valuable services within Suffolk caring for women going through a breast cancer diagnosis.

“‘She’ is our celebration of women, an exhibition of the many amazing aspects of being a woman and the over-riding beauty that is shared.”

There will be over 20 artists, sculptors and ceramicists exhibiting in June, including the eminent national artists Henrietta Dubrey, Maggi Hambling and Michael G Clark, alongside an exciting selection of painters and sculptors drawn from Suffolk’s great wealth of artistic talent, including Jelly Green and Theronda Hoffman.

All exhibiting artists have agreed to donate a percentage of their sales to support the charitable cause and generate a significant total to help fight breast cancer, a disease that over 50,000 women are diagnosed with each year.

This pop up exhibition follows the staggering success of Art for Cure in 2016 when they raised £350,000 from art which was sold at Glemham Hall, including Ed Sheeran’s famous ‘Cat Doodle’ drawing as well as other work from celebrities such as Joanna Lumley, Andy Murrey and Dame Judi Dench.

This enabled Art For Cure to donate £100,000 to Breast Cancer Now, the UK’s largest breast cancer charity and a further £74,000 to cancer projects in Suffolk.
