Picasso and Dali among exhibits to benefit hospice

Categories: Community Engagement.

An exhibition featuring work by Banksy, Salvador Dali and Pablo Picasso among others is set to raise money for Mountbatten on the Isle of Wight this weekend.

Private collectors are lending their art works, which also include pieces by Grayson Perry, Jenny Saville and David Hockney, to the Ventnor Arts Club for a ticketed exhibition to benefit the hospice.  For most of the works, it will be the first – and possibly last – time they will be seen in public.

Nigel Hartley, Mountbatten CEO, said:

“This is an incredible opportunity to see artworks from a range of high profile and well-known artists right here on the Isle of Wight. I am so grateful to the owners of these pieces, and to both Phil Le May and Stephen Izatt from Ventnor Arts Club, who have put together this astounding collection.

“This is one of the only times we will be able to see this calibre of artworks on the Isle of Wight, so I urge anyone with an interest in fine art to book your place quickly. Not only will you be in for a breathtaking evening, but you will be supporting Islanders facing death and bereavement at the same time.”

The exhibition runs from Friday 19 to Sunday 21 October. For more information and to book tickets visit Mountbatten
