Some of you may remember the annual Dart Gallery charity postcard draw we used to run as owners. Every year our artists would provide a small painting or original print free of charge which you could win by buying a lucky draw ticket. Every ticket won a painting. Over a period of 10 years we raised over £39,000 for local charitable organisations including Dartmouth Caring, Children’s Hospice South West, The Flavel, the Scouts and Guides and the Townstal Community Hall where we installed a Playstation and TV for the youth club, plus others.
We anticipate over 60 paintings will be donated to this draw and we will only sell as many draw tickets as we have paintings. So if you buy a ticket for £35 then you will win a painting, you just don’t know which one it will be. All of the paintings will be mounted by yours truly! ready for framing.

You can read all about it on the Flavel website by clicking on the Flavel header:
On Friday 29th May 5:30pm – 6:30pm there will be a drinks reception open to the artists and ticket-holders when tickets and artwork will be matched by a random draw to reveal who has secured which painting.
Just to give you an idea of the quality of submissions (all provided free of charge by the artists) here is a sample of the postcards:
