A note from St Ives
Last weekend the great "Spot the Artist" event took place in St Ives. This event is organised primarily to create funds for the local Rotary Club's chosen charities.
"We had a very enjoyable time this weekend at the 'Spot the Artist' event. Rotary was well
supported by members of the public. On Saturday morning some enthusiasts had started to
queue outside the Studio almost 24 hours before the beginning of the sale, subsequently braving
the overnight rain.
About 270 generous artists had given us over 360 artworks of a very impressive standard
and very wide variety, all of which were sold with the exception of only six pieces. I am pleased to
confirm that your lovely collage ‘Landscape through Window’ was sold early in
the proceedings. ...
The total raised on Sunday was more than £13,750, which is a record for the event. ... One half of the proceeds will, as usual, be given to local arts charities and organisations, with the remainder going to
Rotary charities and good causes. A very big Thank You is due to you and to your fellow
contributors for making this event so successful and such good fun for all involved.
We plan to repeat 'Spot the Artist' during the St Ives September Festival of 2018 and I do hope
that you will be kind enough to support us again next year.
Thank you again so much for supporting 'Spot the Artist'.
My very best wishes,
