Save the Children 2010 - Annual Art Exhibition and Sale

Continuing a successful run of exhibitions spanning 17 years, latterly at the Maclaurin Galleries, Ayr and District Branch of Save the Children is presenting another open exhibition of art by professional and amateur artists from Ayrshire and beyond, featuring a diverse range of subject matter from 191 artists, to suit all tastes and pockets.

Much of the administration of the exhibition is carried out by representatives of Save the Children, with the last couple of weeks being particularly intensive.  Museum staff, principally Mark, the Gallery Technician, have the daunting role of hanging the exhibition - with close to 400 submitted works, this is a huge task.

We hope to follow previous successes, with visitor numbers in 2009 of 5197. 40% of sales go to the charity, with over £220,000 raised over the years from this exhibition.
