Templar Artists in Charity Exhibition
Over the weekend, in the beautiful setting of the Denbies Wine Estate, the ‘Hidden Artists’ exhibition and art sale drew to an end. Templar artists donated a total of ten pieces of art for the charity event.
Inspired by the Royal College of Art’s Secret Exhibition, each piece of art was framed and displayed without any name credits, with the eventual owner only discovering the name of the artist after purchase. Pairs of eyes scanned each piece of art for an emotional connection, not for a famous name. With hundreds of pieces of art on the wall, this year’s event was a great show of generosity and talent.
Hours before the sale was due to start, a neatly organised queue was growing, hoping to obtain their favourite pieces or a bargain.
The year’s event was destined to be a success and raise much-needed funds for the local Rotary Club and the NSPCC.
