Art Transplant’s First Exhibition
After spending months painting I had amassed an impressive 15 pieces, I now wanted to exhibit these and raise awareness by sharing my story. Through the generosity of by PhD supervisor, Profesor Rob Gilbert, and with the help of friends and colleagues at Oxford University, I held my first solo Art Transplant exhibition at the Grove Auditorium, Magdalen College. This was a unique solo exhibition aiming to increase awareness surrounding the need for organ donors and to encourage people to join the NHS Organ Donor Register and/or promote conversation about their donation decision with family and friends.
The exhibition opened with a private viewing with friends and family, with a drinks reception and beautiful music played a string and quartet, courtesy of yet more friends. It was very well attended, with charity representatives and local press also managing to make appearances – I couldn’t have been more pleased with outcome.
The exhibition opening was held on Friday the 28th of February and was open to the public on Saturday the 1st and the 15th of March 2014. The ITV interview for the exhibtion can be watched here (watch)
