Ikea …….. I care!

The artists, their homelessness organisations & support workers, together with Cafe Art, are proud to announce our second unique exhibition for 2014. This time it's with our longest supporter who has been with us right from the very start.
IKEA!  Did you know that they have been quietly supplying the beautiful frames for the paintings that hang in our partner Cafes? Well, they have moved the goal post yet again. They have opened up space in their popular Restaurant located on the first floor of their flagship London store to accommodate a visual spectacle of stunning artworks ever to be assembled in one location in Wembley!
None of these pieces have been exhibited before at our partner Cafes. So it would be the very first time that they're all shown together. Best of all, you, the general public, can view this free exhibition anytime during Ikea's opening hours, and vote for your favourite painting. Wait for this! Ikea has also generously donated up to £1,000 in prize money for your top 3 favourite paintings. It can't get any better than this!
Reserve your place at the special Opening Night of the 'Home is Where the Art is' exhibition on Friday 14th March 2014 at 7pm by clicking here. Further details can also be found on Ikea's official website here.
Come and support your homeless organisations (to include 240 Project, Arlington, Art Fitzrovia, Crisis, Holy Cross Trust, Praxis Art, Providence Row, St Mungo's etc.) by voting for your favourite painting! The exhibition will be on for a week from 14th to 21st March inclusive. And if you like any of the paintings, you can also buy them at the exhibition. The artists and their support workers will also be present on some of the days during the week of the exhibition - so do drop by to have a chat with them too!
We look forward to seeing you there. But most of all, enjoy the wonderful talent on display. Thank you, Ikea Wembley ......!
