Dear fellow artists
Gillian has asked me to let you know about this. She is an artist marking International Women’s Day inviting older people to a launch of a unique RAGWORKS exhibition depicting celebrated localwomen. Gillian makes Art from recycled textiles.
Gillian organises ‘Up Your Streets’; a local community initiative that provides regular newsletters and events for people aged 55+, interested in Art, culture and networking with people who share interests. Last year, Gillian organised discounted visits to exhibitions, meals out, concerts and workshops.
I strongly recommend you contact her to subscribe to ‘Up Your Streets’ (contact firstname.lastname@example.org) and to see her amazing work.
