Proceeds of artist’s exhibition go toward Leeds Cancer Centre
The exhibition was unveiled in November, with 35% of the proceeds being donated to Leeds Cares to support Leeds Cancer Centre.
Yorkshire artist David Walshaw is currently exhibiting his collection ‘Thoughts on Marine, Townscape and Rural Green’ in the Bexley Wing at Leeds Cancer Centre.
A former architect, David has always been a naturally gifted artist but it was not until retirement in 2003 that David truly rekindled his love of drawing and painting.
Following a refresher course at night school, David by chance met qualified fine artist Margaret Utley who became his guiding inspiration for many years.
When Bexley Wing first opened David was absolutely wowed by the new space in the atrium. His exhibition was unveiled in November, with 35% of the proceeds being donated to Leeds Cares to support Leeds Cancer Centre. So far, David has sold over 10 pieces, meaning his exhibition has already raised more than £1,000!
The exhibition has had an amazing response from patients, staff and visitors alike. David’s collection even inspired an individual to contact him directly for tips on watercolour painting!
‘Thoughts on Marine, Townscape and Rural Green’ will be in the Bexley Wing atrium until the end of January, and pieces will be available to purchase until then.
