Reading Guild of Artists – back at the RBH for the 26th Charity Art Sale
The Reading Guild of Artists (RGA) is pleased to announce the return to the corridors of the Royal Berkshire Hospital for its 26th Charity Art Sale, and its first physical exhibition for 16 months. It’s been a long time coming after all the lockdowns and restrictions of the past many months. Trish Roberts, the new Exhibitions Secretary of the RGA, oversaw the exhibition team working well together to present a colourful and varied display of members’ artworks. The exhibition is open until 28th August and 25% of sales will be donated to the ‘Royal Berks Charity’.
Trish Roberts is delighted with the new exhibition and hopes that the wide variety of artworks, the range of subject matter, and the joy of seeing ‘art in the flesh’ will be a source of great pleasure for all who spend some time looking as they walk along the 2nd-floor link corridor at the hospital.
RGA member, Janina Maher, is exhibiting her mixed media piece ‘Purple Profusion’. Janina is a tutor and practitioner of mono-printing and has incorporated some of her prints into paintings. This vibrant work of art is one of her beautiful, finished pieces. She said, “The exhibition (at the RBH) helps brighten the corridors for patients and visitors and gives local artists the opportunity to reach a wider audience”. It also gives art lovers who visit the hospital an opportunity to buy and own original art whilst at the same time helping to support the hospital charity.
