A live art installation that took place on Bedford Street during the Norwich Lanes Summer Fayre in July has helped raise much needed funds for local children’s charity Break.
The event was part of the Jarrold Festival of Colour, which saw interactive live art displays and workshops along Bedford Street outside both the Jarrold Art and Stationers and The Granary.
The main highlight of the event was a live large scale art installation from local fine artist, illustrator and graphic recorder Rebecca Osborne. Rebecca used Liquitex spray paints on canvas to create three large scale paintings in front of crowds at the Norwich Lanes Summer Fayre.
The paintings, which feature a lady wearing headphones, a cat and a festival tree, have been donated to Break who will sell these creations to raise money for the children’s charity.
Martin Green, GoGo Hares 2018 and Break charity fundraising manager, said: “Break is thrilled to receive this kind donation of three stunning paintings created for the Lanes Fayre by local artist Rebecca Osborne. The pictures will be sold off to help support the work Break does locally in Norfolk. We would like to thanks Jarrold and Rebecca Osborne for their ongoing support.”
Artist Rebecca Osborne says: “It was fantastic to be part of the Jarrold Festival of Colour and I’m delighted that my artwork is helping raise money for Break, which is such a good cause.”
Jarrold brand and editorial manager Emma Harrowing says: “This year the Jarrold Festival of Colour was the opportunity for everyone to get creative, have fun and raise money for charity and Break is a charity that we work closely with. The Jarrold Festival of Colour is set to return in July 2018 – so watch this space!”
