Jenni only started painting a couple of years ago, following the sad death of her ‘artist’ sister, who left behind a studio full of paints and equipment, which were going to waste. Just about the start of lockdown this year, Jenni had some more sad family news and decided to do something with her new hobby to raise funds for St Julia’s Hospice. The A-Z Lockdown Painting Challenge was born! By contacting friends and family on facebook, Jenni got sponsors for each letter of the alphabet, which then entitled them to suggest a theme for that painting.
Having started this in May, Jenni has finally reached the end of her Challenge …and “by popular request”… has decided to display the finished paintings as a collection together in one place, before they go off to their respective new homes. With the kind consent of Truro Golf Club, and support from Cornwall Hospice Care, she’ll be hosting an exhibition there from Friday 25th to Sunday 27th September. There will be free parking, the bar will be open for food and drink (card purchases only) and there will be a raffle and the opportunity to buy some cards and prints of a few of the A-Z pictures, to try and get you to part with your lovely dosh (cash only please) for a very worthy cause!
Regrettably, there is no disabled access in the clubhouse (there is a staircase leading up to the bar area/exhibition.)
Further information is below about parking/Covid procedures at the Club, and the Exhibition opening times (when Jenni will be there to greet you) will be:
Friday 25th from 4 – 7pm
Saturday 26th from 12 – 6pm
(car park likely to be busier on this day due to golf competition)
Sunday 27th from 12 – 4pm
The aim of the exhibition of course is hopefully to raise as much as possible for St Julia’s Hospice, so please come along, enjoy seeing the display and support Jenni at the end of this mad but enjoyable challenge. If not, her Just Giving page will still be open for donations until all the A-Z sponsors have paid for their individual pieces…
