The exhibition will feature a wide variety of artwork for sale by silent auction – from both professional and amateur artists, in many mediums including bronze sculptures, intricate metalwork, photography and beautiful paintings. Much of the artwork has been donated and there are some amazingly talented parents and ex-pupils across the three schools, as well as siblings, relatives and friends. Many local artists will also be exhibiting their work.
Dunannie is aiming to raise a record-breaking amount of money for their chosen charities – locally based Hounds for Heroes and Big Brother Mouse, a child literacy charity based in Laos. A small portion of the funds will be given to the school to provide an Artist in Residence who will come in to work on art projects over the coming year with Dunannie pupils.
The exhibition is open on Thursday 22nd March from 9.00am to 9.00pm and on Friday 23rd March from 9.00am to 6.00pm. Access to the hall will be via the Dunannie playground and there is ample parking in the school car park. Visitors are most welcome.
