Each Christmas Artsite supports an organisation that improves people’s lives and mirrors its charitable aims. This year Artsite are supporting The Salvation Army particularly in their work with homeless people at Booth House and those experiencing problems with substance abuse and in Rehabilitation at Gloucester House in Highworth. Artsite wants to focus Christmas at Artsite on events that celebrate the real meaning of Christmas and raise money for the work of the Salvation Army with vulnerable people..
Artsite are putting on a Christmas exhibition that runs from Wednesday the 5th.Dec.to Saturday the 15th. Dec. 2012. The title of the exhibition will be: ‘A Christmas Carol. (The Real Meaning of Christmas)’.
The works have been done by artists both from Artsite and from the town. They have asked that works express ‘The Real Meaning of Christmas. The £5 hanging fee and all commission go to The Salvation Army.
As well as the exhibition, Artsite have provided 8 inch canvases to those interested in providing an artwork to be auctioned at our Christmas finale at 2pm on the 15th. of December. Residents at Booth House and Gloucester House worked on canvases and are included in our exhibition.
Gloucester House also provided artwork from their creative programme with those undergoing rehabilitation. This can be seen in our ‘Community Gallery’ window at Number 10 Theatre Square. Please come and look at the excellent work produced by the residents at Gloucester House.
As mentioned previously the finale of our Christmas Celebration is happening on the Saturday the 15th. of December at Theatre Square. There will be music and poetry and the auction of work. Then a Carol Concert by The Salvation Army will be a fitting end to our celebration. Artsite extend a warm welcome to all to the auction, exhibitions and happenings in our finale to ‘A Christmas Carol.’ The real meaning of Christmas.
