Suffolk Art to support Suffolk charities

Celebrated Suffolk artist, Wendy Drew, is having a solo exhibition and reception in the Edmund Chapel of St Edmundsbury Cathedral, Bury St Edmunds, on Saturday 14 September.


Wendy works primarily in oils and pastels and although she is best known for her portraits, she also paints landscapes and seascapes ‘en plein air’ all around Suffolk.


The exhibition is being opened and hosted by actor and television presenter, Christopher Biggins, and is in aid of two charities – the Edmund Centre for Arts & Theology and Ormiston Children & Families Trust. All profits including funds raised by the sale of Wendy’s art will be divided between these two charities.


Wendy conments, ‘I wanted not only to support two of my favourite charities but to get people talking about young people and the arts at the same time.’


Sarah Friswell, PR Manager at the Cathedral, continues, ‘This is the first time that the Cathedral’s has worked with Ormiston Children & Families Trust and we are delighted to have this opportunity to bring together the Cathedral’s work and this vital work with young people in Suffolk.’


Lucy Potter, Head of Fundraising at Ormiston, added, ‘We are thrilled to be working with Wendy Drew and the Cathedral on this event. The money raised from the exhibition will go towards ensuring we are able to continue delivering projects and supporting children, young people and families who are most in need.’


Also on display in the Cathedral Cloisters will be ‘Life Through a Lens’, a collection of photos which were taken by young Gypsy and Travellers who were part of a photography project funded by Ormiston.



The event starts at 6.30 pm. Tickets are £10 each and are available from the What’s On page of Please note that tickets must be pre-purchased by 12 noon on Thursday 12 September.
