More than 250 people visit the Motherhood private view last night – where Motherhood books were sold in aid of Oxfam’s Mother Appeal.
More than 250 people visited last night’s Motherhood exhibition which runs at The Chelsea Gallery, Chelsea Library in the Kings Road until Mother’s Day (30 March).
Book sales of the accompanying book, with a percentage of the sales going to the Oxfam appeal were brisk.
And the private view included some of those who had sat for portraits, such as Sarah Richardson’s mother-in-law ‘Granules’ and Nichola Collins’ mother-in-law Honor.
There were some starry names too like Lorraine Chase and many teachers and students from Heatherley’s Thomas Heatherley, where the Lots Road Group met, including Susan Engledow, Tony Mott, Linda Nugent and new Principal Veronica Ricks.
And, all the way from the States, came Julia Kay who set up an online portrait party four years ago where artists post their photographs for group members to use for portraits and meet around the world to meet and portray each other face-to-face. Now on facebook.
The Mayor of Kensington and Chelsea Councillor Charles Williams and the Mayoress visited the show.
