Art V Cancer Presents: “Live Long and Prosper”

Ifyou are going to be in Manchester, England around November 2 you really should carve out some time to stop by and check out the Art V Cancer ExhibitionArt V Cancer’s first exhibition will be selling limited edition prints to raise money for CLIC Sargent and Manchester Royal Infirmary Charity’s, CALLM fund. Featuring prints from over 35 international and established artists including Stanley Chow, Alan Dalby, Si Scott, Raid71 & Sam Falconer as well as celebrity contributions including Sir Patrick Stewart.

Art V Cancer was originally set up by the artist Chris Thornley (Raid71) and his partner Julia Hall to raise money for CALLM in 2011 having received treatment for a rare incurable lymphoma. Due to its success selling signed limited edition prints worldwide  Art V Cancer developed to involve more established artists and has raised thousands of pounds for CALLM, CLIC Sargent, The Breast Cancer Campaign, Prostate Cancer UK and Cancer Research UK.

To celebrate what has been an amazing first year selling limited edition prints on Art V Cancer’s website and with Chris continuing to recover well from his bone marrow transplant. Art V Cancer will be exhibiting work from over 35 artists based on the theme ‘Live Long and Prosper’.  Prints will be sold on the night for £20 with all profits going to Cancer Charities as mentioned above. These Art V Cancer prints will be exclusively limited to only 5 prints per artist. There will also be some original pieces of artwork being sold that evening and each will be priced individually. On the night, there will be a chance to get your portrait in Spectacular Star Trek Style by the artist Emma Reynolds whilst sitting in a blow up Star Trek chair as well as witness some live doodling by the artist Pete Obsolete. It’s going to be a great night so come along, have a drink, buy a print and raise some money for Cancer Charities

Chris experienced his first taste of publicity, having been featured on news websites worldwide last year while receiving treatment for a bone marrow transplant; Chris was controversially identified as the original artist who designed the infamous Steve Job’s Apple silhouette Logo.  The logo went viral despite being first claimed by Johnathan Mac. This caused controversy at the time but brought some great attention to the Art V Cancer cause.

Here is the full list of artists displaying art for this exhibit:  Stan Chow, Raid71, Adam Davison, Alan Dalby, Alternative Aesthetics /Colin Kersley, Andy Hau, Carly Strickland, Carys Tait, Chris Burscough, David Moscati

    What a cool exhibit. I hope someday it will just be an art show without need for the cause.
