This unique project was commissioned by Ian Craigton Chambers of Ravenous For Art to help raise awareness of dementia and is being delivered in collaboration with Draw Events – organisers of The Alzheimer’s Show – and the Bounce Alzheimer’s Therapy (BAT) Foundation.
Eleven of the portraits are in paint, three are in fine art print, one is a collage of glass and one is in cross stitch. This eclectic mix of styles and techniques by a group of exceptionally talented artists – including Robert Adam, Anna Carter and Lesley Ennis – has resulted in an eye-catching and thought-provoking collection. These portraits represent the first phase of a two-year project. By the end of the second phase, a total of 40 portraits will be completed.
The original artwork are for sale and limited edition prints will also be available to buy: 25% of the proceeds will go towards staging further Alzheimer’s awareness events, as well as supporting the BAT Foundation’s research programme and the charity’s specialist equipment development, installation and staff training initiative in care homes nationwide.
