May 2009: Creating Possibilities exhibition update

The ‘Creating Possibilities’ exhibition has already been heralded as a real success story. More than 70 guests attended the preview night at the end of May at the offices of local law firm B P Collins, raising a substantial £3,000 for the charity and artists from donations and sales of the paintings.

NSE is a long-standing client of the firm and Graham Faulkner, chief executive, NSE, paid tribute to its support, saying: “We should thank B P Collins for a fantastic event. You can’t begin to know what joy you brought to our service users, not just those that sold some of their art work but for all having the work so beautifully presented and displayed in such a formal setting. It did wonders for their morale and self respect.”

Many of the artists whose work was on display have personal experiences of epilepsy and at the event they were able to share the stories behind their paintings with guests.

David Stanning, senior partner at B P Collins, said the evening had been a great way to support the charity and underlined the firm’s commitment to the local community. “We are delighted the launch evening was such a success, the paintings really demonstrate the skills of a talented group of individuals and it was tremendous for us to be able to showcase them in such a way and raise funds for the NSE at the same time.” he said.

The exhibition will run for several months at B P Collins’ offices, with paintings available for sale and monies going directly to the NSE and artists.
