Eight by Eight

In April we will be exhibiting as part of the eightby eight project.... The eightbyeight Project is bringing ‘Childhood Explored’ to Eden Court, Inverness, in April 2013. This exciting and uplifting exhibition explores the theme of childhood in many glorious ways, through diverse media. This is thanks to the generous donations of artists, photographers, and other creatives from all over the UK. The artworks in the show are all 8 by 8 inches in size, and will be displayed in stunning groupings. They will celebrate both the beauty and skill of the individual works, but also the power of bringing together the pieces en masse – echoing the notion that by coming together in a spirit of charity and positivity, people can do great things! The project was set up to raise the profile of Camillie's Appeal, and raise funds to support the charity's vital work. Camille’s Appeal works hard to support children aged 0–5 with brain tumours – and also their families. Under the current UK treatment regime, children are likely to undergo three treatments in an attempt to cure them of this horrific illness, all of which have a devastating effect on their small bodies. Chemotherapy, surgery and radiotherapy will in many cases leave the child with disabilities that make an independent life very difficult. Camille’s Appeal works to help these wonderful children and their families regain as close to a normal life as possible. Amy
