100 Artists For Pride

With Brighton Pride festival coming up on 7th August, Hizze Fletcher has put together an eclectic show of paintings, prints and photographs to raise money for the free event. The work on display at the Twilight Gallery ranges from seascapes to erotica, Cheryl Cole to kids in bunny costumes and ranges in price from £35 to £200, with at least 10% of the sale going to Pride.

The featured artists range in experience from Aids Memorial sculptor Romany Mark Bruce to Jimmy Dean, exhibiting for the first time, so there’s plenty of opportunity to pick up a future star in the making.

Everything about the exhibition has got community in mind, which perfectly represents what Pride is all about: bringing people together to celebrate our uniqueness while rejoicing in our common interests…if nothing else a good party and a stiff drink! Artists of all levels have been given the rare opportunity to exhibit, while the rest of us get to take home a piece of their talent at an affordable price.

Hizze said: “There is so much great creative talent in Brighton and they’re not given the chance to show it, that’s why we get everyone involved and give them the opportunity to progress. There’s no theme to the show, we just invite artists to bring in what they’ve been working on.”

The opening night on 25th July also brought the musical delights of AMiTY, a local lady who never fails to put on a fantastic show, and comedian Julie Jepson, who managed to make the raffle amusing for those of us who didn’t win!

The exhibition will be open again to the public on Thursday 29th July and 5th August from 6-8:30 for you to pick up some artwork and also to check out the artists’ talks. There will be two or three different artists talking about their work on each day, which will add some fuel to your art expert persona as you discuss your purchased treasure over the dinner table!

If you are interested in buying any of the artwork or would like to exhibit in future exhibitions contact Hizze on hizjam@hotmail.com, or catch her on the night at the Twilight Gallery, 28-29 Bond Street, Brighton.
