The Lamb will be hosting the first 24 hour art marathon on Bank Holiday Monday in support of Creative Youth., the charity behind the International Youth Arts Festival. Beginning at 3 pm at the Community Picnic in Sta Andrew's Square, Surbiton, the event will continue at the Lamb pub from 4.30 to 3pm the following day.
Two artists Kay Galbraith and Eddie Langham will be creating a piece of art over the 24 hours. Kay will be painting and Eddie will be making a fashion piece. Members of the community will be invited to bring their inspiration and take part in both pieces.
Throughout the event many other artists will be producing work which will culminate in an exhibition and auction in a few months. There will also be many workshops and opportunities to get involved and create something of your own which could be included in the exhibition.
As we get closer to the event there may be some additions to the list of activities happening during the event, however here is an outline of all the exciting things happening:
29/08 to 30/08 - 3pm to 3pm - Kay Galbraith - painting for 24 hours (St Andrew's Park & The Lamb)
Beginning her challenge at the Community Picnic, Kay will invite the community to help inspire her piece with a suggestion box.
She will move to the Lamb around 4.30pm where you'll be able to come and watch and support her.
She told us a little more about her challenge:
"I had been mulling over what fund raising event I could possibly do to support them when I came up with the idea of painting a watercolour over 24 hours! Another reason being is I feel I don’t paint enough and this will make me paint!!!
The painting will then be auctioned later in the year with all monies going to Creative Youth Charity."
