Residents invited to 'secret' art sale at Café in the Park, Rickmansworth, to raise cash for Watford Mencap
The event promises to be an exhibition with a difference, with all contributed artwork selling at £35 and all proceeds going to Watford Mencap.
Each piece has been created on either a 6in by 4in postcard or a 5in by 5in canvas and the secret lies in who is behind its creation.
It may be a celebrity, a member of the local community, a person with a learning disability or even a professional artist.
Among the artwork on offer is a piece by Christine Kubrick, wife of the late director Stanley Kubrick, an established artist whose paintings often sell for thousands of pounds.
Other contributors include actor Anthony Head and his daughter Emily Head, both well-known actors on screen and TV. The Mayor of Watford, Dorothy Thornhill, and Richard Harrington, MP have also contributed their artistic efforts as has former England manager Graham Taylor and current Watford boss Gianfranco Zola.
Liz Hizli, Watford Mencap’s Community fundraiser said: "We are really excited about this new fundraising event which would not be possible without the generosity and talent of so many people.
"We would like to thank Carly, Ian and Tina of The Café in The Park for their continued support. They have kindly given their function room for free for the three days, plus the launch evening catering at cost, sponsored by VocaLink.
"This is a great opportunity to own a piece of original artwork for only £35 whilst supporting a very worthy, local cause."
