Reeves seeking some iconic images

One of Britain’s best loved art brands is asking community groups up and down the UK to commemorate the last decade in style – by creating some iconic images of the last ten years to celebrate the end of the ‘noughties.’

Whether it is a provocative image of 9/11, or the memorable sight of Sir Steve Redgrave winning his fifth Olympic gold, Reeves want to see as many exhibits as possible as it strives to fill an end of year charity gallery.

Any group or organisation interested is being asked to get in touch with the Midlands based brand, who will then send out some canvases and paints for them to get started with.

It is hoped that the unique initiative will not only capture the imagination, but will form a moving memento of the last 10 years for future generations to enjoy.
All entries will be sent back to us, and we will shortlist them down before organising a ‘Reeves in the Noughties’ exhibition.

The pieces of art will then be auctioned off for an official charity of our choice in an attempt to swell the coffers of a worthy cause.

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 is no real criteria for entry – only that any piece of work is created on the back of a memorable moment in the last 10 years. It really is down to interpretation and we can’t wait to see the artwork come in to us.

“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.”

Any community groups interested in receiving an art pack to get started should email paintings@connect-group.com

Once a pack is received, the deadline for entries will be October 5 2009.
