19-28 August 2017: ART FOR AMNESTY

Malvern Hills Amnesty International and Malvern Quakers present ART FOR AMNESTY 2017, the annual Exhibition and Sale in support of Amnesty International.

Art for Amnesty is Malvern’s annual exhibition for the best of local artists, professional and amateur - around a hundred - to show their work. They contribute works for sale, 70% going to the artist, 30% to Amnesty International. 2017 sees our 16th exhibition and also marks 56 years of Amnesty International.

Works on display range from paintings and prints to woodcarving, ceramics and textiles. Artists’ greeting cards are on sale, as well as art books from Books for Amnesty, Malvern. We accept payment by cash or cheque - sorry, no credit or debit cards.

The exhibition will be officially opened on Saturday 19 August at 11am by Baraa Ehssan Kouja, a Syrian from Aleppo. He is the founder and director of From Syria With Love, a charity that works directly with refugees and raises awareness about the plight of Syrian people.
