Art For Macmillan at Southport’s Wayfarers Arcade – Summer 2016

Art For Macmillan Cancer Support is pleased to announce its return to Wayfarers Arcade after a year of involvement in fundraising exhibitions and events in other parts of the region. The charitable art and craft organisation has become an important part of the Wayfarers establishment over the past five years, having exhibited there on numerous occasions . Art For Macmillan’s fundraising artists will be holding two exhibitions in Wayfarers Arcade this Summer:

5th – 24th July and 16th August – 4th September.

antonThe Macmillan Artists have been eager to display their work and demonstrate their skills to the public in Wayfarers Arcade again as it provides a fantastic setting for creative activities: its classically excellent Victorian architecture exemplifies iconic cultural status within Southport’s central shopping district. We also appreciate the tremendous amount of assistance given by Wayfarers staff and management without whom our  artistic ventures would not  succeed. They are an asset to the town.

Art For Macmillan’s exhibitions feature  work by some of the area’s leading creative talent and include images and three dimensional art created in a wide  variety of styles and media ranging from traditional watercolours to multi –media constructions. The exhibitions are guaranteed to satisfy all needs for art and craft gifts and mementos of the area with a great selection of art portraying Southport’s landmarks and the surrounding locality.

The exhibitions are open daily from Monday to Saturday: 10.30am – 5pm (Sundays 11am – 5pm) and entry to them is free. For full details regarding demonstrations by exhibitors look online:
