Tomorrow I'm taking part in the "24 Hour Arty People" event at Oil and Glass in Torry. This is a charity event, being organised and led by Shelagh Swanson, the marvellous owner of Oil and Glass. The event aims to raise funds for Momentum, a charity which I am ashamed to say I had not heard about before. Having read a little about it, I am happy to be spending a couple of hours painting tomorrow in its support.
I'm away to have a think about what I will paint tomorrow (I'll be there from about 2-4pm). I also need to gather my materials and stretch some paper in readiness. I'll be painting at my art class in Udny Green in the morning, so hoping my stamina will last out for two painting sessions in one day. Shelagh is bravely going to be creating throughout the 24 Hour period, I believe! It will be wonderful to see all the pieces that result from this creative marathon - (is this called a creatathon?).
All the pieces created will be available to purchase by silent auction; photos of the items will be available to view on the Oil and Glass Facebook page and it will be possible to purchase up till 9.30pm on Saturday 25th May. It's also Oil and Glass's 1st Birthday on Saturday, so folk can come along and celebrate from 7pm onwards, view the pieces created and maybe even make an impulse purchase! Hope to see you there.
