College artists team up with Arty Parties to support Grove House

24 January 2012

Throughout January, Fine Art Paintings and Prints by the Students and Staff of Oaklands College have been on display at Arty Parties, Hatfield Road, St Albans. The exhibition has been a chance for the local community to go along, see the work and put a bid against original pieces of art.

On Wednesday 1st February at 6.30pm the bidding box will be opened by Oaklands College Principal Zoe Hancock, who will be announcing the lucky few with the highest bids.

A donation from all sales will be made to The Grove House Hospice.

Jude O’Sullivan, Head of Art Fashion and Design at Oaklands, commented: “The exhibition has been a fantastic opportunity for Oaklands, the local community and a great local charity. It has given a real sense of fulfilment for everyone involved. There are some really exciting young artists on display and it is a real opportunity to purchase an original piece of work and help raise much needed funds for a local charity.”
