One of Britain’s best loved art brands will celebrate the end of the decade in style next week – when it unveils a commemorative exhibition of the last 10 years in the heart of Wolverhampton.

Community groups up and down the UK have painted a host of iconic images which will be displayed at the LightHouse Gallery on Tuesday December 15.

Reeves, based in Kidderminster, asked scores of amateur artists to create some pieces of artwork for their exhibition earlier in the year, and they are now ready t be viewed for the first time at the Fryer Street based gallery.

It is believed to be the only art exhibition of its kind to have taken place to celebrate the end of the last 10 years.

Reeves will choose an overall winner on the day and will also present them with a £500 prize for a charity of their choice.

Reeves’ communications manager Rachel Smallman said: “We didn’t think we could let the end of a decade pass without commemorating it in style, which is why we came up with this unique idea.

“There was no real criteria for entry – only that any piece of work was created on the back of a memorable moment in the last 10 years. It really was down to interpretation and we can’t wait to see the artwork displayed together at once.

“The advent of 2010 will be upon us before we know it, and being a brand with over 200 years of experience, we want to look forward to the future too. The interest generated in this initiative will be perfect to showcase our plans moving forward, so it really is the perfect time to engage with the public.”
