An art event for everyone

Newly appointed Head of the Art Sale Committee, Rachael McLaren says this year’s Art Sale weekend is a chance to build on the previous success of past years, and for the wider College community to meet, while enjoying some truly fantastic art work.

“The committee is excited to be exhibiting many new artists this year.  We’ve welcomed a large number of enthusiastic new committee members who look forward playing a part in creating a fabulous weekend for all.”

“I am very thankful to the everyone in the King’s College community, the Art Sale team, sponsors and supporters, who contribute their energy, time and resources to making the Art Sale such a wonderful event.”

The Art Sale is also a great opportunity for the College’s art and technology students to exhibit their work alongside renowned artists. The special Opening Night, with entertainment from some of King’s talented bands, is another much anticipated part of the weekend.

“On Friday 2 November, we will again welcome more than 400 guests, artists and sponsors to the opening night to take a first look at the artwork from more than 200 artists as well as admire the student’s work. There will be delicious food and great entertainment from our student bands.”
