Last night, we collaborated for the fourth time with The Society of Women Artists (SWA), which generously gave us the Preview Evening of its stunning 152nd annual exhibition at Mall Galleries.  In a moving speech, SWA President Sue Jelley congratulated Create on “10 years of using the arts to heal broken lives”.  More than 100 guests attended the event, which raised £4,296 (and counting!) through ticket sales, an auction of artwork generously donated by seven SWA artists, 10% of artwork sales from the exhibition during the evening, and donations.  We were honoured to have Zara Rhodes as our special guest.  Many thanks to everyone who supported.
