The Drawing Dave exhibition of… well… drawings of Daves… launches tomorrow night (Tuesday 10th May) at Aceface Barbers, Bristol Street, Birmingham.
If you’re in the area go and take a look, there’s a limited edition beer by Two Towers Brewery and drawings by 50 artists and it looks like a great venue. After the exhibition the work will be available to buy via auction with all proceeds going to Pancreatic Cancer UK. You’ll find all the details here: https://www.facebook.com/events/515791541958396/
Here’s what the curator has to say:
“An exhibition of ‘Daves’ drawn by 50 artists to support Pancreatic Cancer UK.
Following the death of the ‘Only Fools and Horses’ star Roger Lloyd Pack in 2014, Pancreatic Cancer UK launched a national fundraiser ‘Call Everyone Dave Day’ inspired by the character that Roger famously played.
As part of this fundraising initiative artist Dan Genders is raising money for the charity by inviting artists, illustrators and celebrities to draw a famous Dave that will be sold via a silent auction. Dan is working with curator, Trevor Pitt, to organise an exhibition of the Dave artwork at the Secret Cellar, which is part of AceFace Barbers on Bristol Street, Birmingham.
The public will be able to view the exhibition at AceFace from 10th to 14th May 2016. Following the exhibition all the artwork will be available to buy via an eBay auction with all the funds going directly the charity.
