The Second Half Career Art Exhibition: Celebrating Living Old Masters, The Second Half Centre, St Charles Centre for Health and Wellbeing, Exmoor Street, London W10, 13th & 14th October 2016
This is the fifth year that The Second Half Foundation, founded by the philanthropist and author Lady Jill Shaw Ruddock CBE, has held this fund-raising event which celebrates continued creativity as we grow older.
The nine artists taking part this year had different jobs in their earlier lives before turning to artistic creativity in the second half. Among those taking part is the talented jewellery designer Ute Decker who is making a well-deserved name for herself through her sculptural jewellery.
The participating artists donate 50% of the money raised to support the The Second Half Centre which is run by Open Age. There is also a silent auction of a special work created and donated by Edmund de Waal.
Private view – by invitation only: Thursday 13th October
Public open day: Friday 14th October 11am – 8pm
