The Maynard School will be holding its third Art Exhibition, ‘art-in-mind’ on Saturday 21 – Sunday 22 April 2012. This exciting exhibition will feature work by contemporary, national and international artists and promises to be bigger and better than ever, featuring many different forms of art, including paint, sculpture, ceramics, textiles and photography. There will also be a shop and a café open throughout the Exhibition.
All the works exhibited will be for sale, and, similarly to previous years, part of the commission received by the school will be donated to a specific fund aimed at providing an art bursary for talented girls to join the Maynard at sixth-form level. In addition, in 2012 we are planning to donate 50% of the commission to ‘Mindful’, a creative therapies fund launched last year under the ‘Mind’ umbrella. ‘Mindful’ is focused on providing resources and encouragement to those people suffering with mental illness who would benefit from the therapeutic potential of creative expression.
