Peter Howson takes part in Royal Blind Fundraising Art Exhibition and Sale

A number of Scottish and international artists are helping registered charity Royal Blind to raise money through their very first fine art fundraiser. The charity exhibition and sale will run from Thursday 20 February to Saturday 1 March at Gallery Seventeen, a pop-up exhibition space located in the heart of Edinburgh's artistic community. We are delighted that Flowers artist Peter Howson is taking part in the exhibition, which is just one of the fundraising activities scheduled for Royal Blind Week. The artist has donated a portrait of his daughter's friend Judith, who has learning difficulties and is severely visually impaired. Proceeds raised through the exhibition will help people of all ages with visual impairments and other disabilities who receive support from Royal Blind. The event will benefit institutions such as The Royal Blind School, which provides children with specialist education and therapy.

"It's the first time we've done something like this and we're absolutely delighted with the phenomenal response we received from the artists. We really do rely on donations from the public and hope that people will come along and buy the art since there are some fantastic pieces in the exhibition." Davina Shiell, Marketing and Fundraising Manager at Royal Blind
