20-29 August 2016: ART FOR AMNESTY 2016
Malvern Hills Amnesty International and Malvern Quakers presented ART FOR AMNESTY 2016, the annual Exhibition and Sale in support of Amnesty International at the Quaker Meeting House, Malvern.
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. This year we took £3710, which, after paymemts to artists and expenses, resulted in a profit of £1133 for Amnesty International.
2016 saw our 15th exhibition and also marks 55 years of Amnesty International.
Works on display ranged from paintings and prints to woodcarving, ceramics and textiles. Artists’ greeting cards were on sale, as well as art books from Books for Amnesty, Malvern.

The exhibition was officially opened on Saturday 20 August at 11am by Ruth Forecast, Founder, Malvern Welcomes Syrian Refugees.
