We would like to say a big thank you to the many buyers who connected with the paintings exhibited at our recent Ikea 'Home is where the Art is' exhibition. All these paintings were drawn from the heart, and it's good to know that they touched many hearts too. Here's just some of the buyers with big hearts and who love art.

A Night to Remember!

Posted by on Feb 28, 2014 in Exhibition, News | Comments Off on A Night to Remember!

We can finally unveil to all you Londoners out there our first exhibition for the artists for 2014. Like all our previous exhibitions, it's a celebration of art created by artists not from one single homelessness organisation, but all your favourite ones. In fact, eleven of them and all under one roof! And this is no ordinary roof.  The artists are really thrilled and excited that their works are honoured alongside the 10th anniversary celebration of Allen & Overy's flagship global community arts programme, Artbeat. Launched in 2003, it uses art as a vehicle through which to inspire, engage and increase the confidence of young people. (Right up our street...
