SG turns 40!

There are great celebrations planned for this Saturday, as SG Education and Art Shop turn 40. You are all invited to come along from 1pm – 3pm and you can read all the details in the poster above.

One of the reasons I’m sharing this is that they have come up with a great way to raise money for Flourish Havin’aLaugh – my chosen charity.

The SG staff members from every department, set themselves a challenge, that they would create an original piece of art to celebrate their 40th anniversary this coming weekend. With the help of artists Lorna Watkins and Aideen Connolly, they are thrilled to showcase the ‘SG Team Exhibition’, with all pieces to be auctioned on Saturday, with all proceeds going to local mental health charity Havin’ a Laugh.

They are really delighted to support the Flourish project, a fantastic project for all involved. There is a twist!  If buying their art wasn’t appealing enough, each piece bought will come with a mystery prize, with one prize being worth over €350!

Introducing the first 6 pieces:

Declan Costello, Warehouse Coordinator has created this fantastic print titled ‘Making Tracks’.
Emer Knowles, warehouse department with her painting, ‘Taking a Moment’.
Anika Baarhs, warehouse department with her piece titled ‘Sliabh Pallet’.
Stephen McEnroy from accounts and his lino print, ‘Dún na nGall Abú’.
Marketing Manager, Gerry Brannigan and his archival quality print ‘The Great Wave of Sligo’
 ‘An Unknown Virus’ by Retail Sales Adviser, Amy O’Hara

So come on down to the SG Art Shop in Carraroe on Saturday from 1pm – 3pm to bid for your favourite piece.
