Saturday 18th July - Saturday 8th August 2015
This summer Artbox will be partnering with FOLD to host an exhibition to launch their inaugural Secret Artbox Card Sale. This anonymous art sale will bring together postcard-sized art works by internationally acclaimed artists, alongside 30 artists with learning disabilities involved in Artbox.
This is an Open Call for artists to consider donating a postcard-sized piece of artwork. The exhibition, held from 20th August, will be a fantastic event, bringing together a mix of artists and gallerists, as well as Artbox's sponsors, supporters and customers. All contributing artists will be welcome to include their contact details on the back of the postcards, and each artist will have their biography available on the night for guests to learn more about who they may be buying.
The money raised from the event will go directly to continuing and growing the work of Artbox London.
ABOUT ARTBOX LONDON
People with Learning Disabilities are some of the most marginalised people in our society today and face many challenges and obstacles to full inclusion and integration within society. Through all of its activities, Artbox London offers a valuable opportunity for people with learning disabilities to develop their artistic skills, meet friends, build meaningful relationships, and interact with peers with and without learning disabilities. The artists feel part of a strong and supportive community founded upon a shared love of art, rather than because of a ‘learning disability’ label.
