Dozens of artists take part in Art on the Block for Musgrove - 19 March 2014
Art On The BlockSave the date- Art On the Block– May 20th at 6pm in the Beacon Centre, Musgrove Park Hospital.
Nearly one hundred artists will be taking part in Musgrove Park Hospital’s ‘Art on the Block’ Charity Art Auction. 
This bi-annual event will be held on the 20th May at 6pm in the hospital’s award winning Beacon Centre.
Lisa Harty, Art and Design Co-ordinator for the Hospital, says. “We are very proud of this extremely successful event and the huge support we gain from the artists who donate their work. Each artist is sent an identical primed A5 block and it is up to them what they produce.
“The artworks that will be auctioned at our event this year will include drawings, paintings, prints, glass work, collages and even sculptures. The money raised from this event will allow us to continue to work with our colleagues at the hospital to enhance the healing environment for patients, visitors and all who work here.”
Now in its fourth year, Art on the Block has gained a reputation for providing an enjoyable way to buy great art at affordable prices. With the help of our corporate sponsor, Foot Anstey LLP, we can guarantee that 100% of the money raised will go directly to support the work of Art for Life. 
All the Blocks will be viewable on www.artforlife.nhs.uk from 2nd April when everyone is invited to make pre-bids on their choice of Blocks. Tickets to attend the auction are £8 and on sale now from the Art for Life office on 01823 342488, or email artforlife@tst.nhs.uk. Ensure your place by booking early. Ticket price includes wine and canapés.
