Local artist Stewart Taylor is set to hold a John Lennon themed art exhibition at the Peter Stockill Garage in support of Dove House Hospice. The event will take place on Friday 3rd December from 7.00pm.
The exhibition, which will be hosted by Stockills, will give the public an opportunity to view the art, meet the artist and buy originals or prints of Stewart Taylor’s work.
With the 30th anniversary of John Lennon’s tragic death rapidly approaching, Stewart feels that December is the perfect time to pay tribute to the musical icon, as he explains…
“2010 is a very important year for John Lennon fans as it would have been his 70th birthday this year and the 8th December will mark 30 years since his death. It is with great pleasure that I am able to commemorate this important time of the year whilst also supporting Dove House Hospice, a charity which provides vital aid to people in the local community.
“I have been a devoted fan of John Lennon ever since The Beatles first took the music world by storm during the early sixties. For me, he was the natural voice of The Beatles. After his death in 1980, I wanted to create an image which I could keep. Others also wanted that image, and so my print range began.
“In support of Dove House Hospice, a raffle will be held at the exhibition, with the proceeds and a donation from my art sales to go to the charity. I really hope that the public will enjoy my collection and will aid Dove House in achieving their funding targets.”
Sarah Cusick, Fundraising Manager at Dove House Hospice, said:
“The exhibition is a great opportunity for the public to enjoy the many fine paintings and drawings in Stewart Taylor’s collection, whilst giving valuable support to Dove House. As most of our funding is raised through public support, fundraising events like this really make a big contribution to meeting our funding targets and help us to continue providing quality care for people with life-limiting illnesses.”
Dove House Hospice is a palliative care facility based in Hull; it has been at the current Chamberlain Road location since 1989. It offers a range of care facilities that are designed to improve quality of life, from day care and in-patient care, through to symptom control for adults and terminal care. They also offer a wide range of complimentary therapies. The hospice is a registered charity and is therefore largely responsible for its own funding.
