NINE artists will take part in a two-in-one fundraising event being organised by an animal welfare organisation this weekend.
The event, organised by the Bahrain Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (BSPCA), brings together fundraisers ‘Art with a Heart’ and ‘Dine for a Cause’.
The special Friday night event unites individual artists and galleries who will showcase photographs, calligraphy, paintings and more.
The various pieces on display will include the works of Impasto Arts, Bahrain Art Gallery, photographers Gaye Bentham, Summer Ameen and Mahdi Al Jallawi, calligraphers Haider Al Shaibani and Abderrazak Hamouda along with painters Abbas Al Mosawi and Mohammed Taha.
The event, which begins at 8pm, starts with a special ‘Meet the Artists’ reception, followed by an exhibition and art sale.
Running in conjunction will be ‘Dine for a Cause’, with live music from headliner Past Masters, a Bahrain-based rock and roll and classic rock band.
A social club scene favourite, the band will cover hits by The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Status Quo, Culture Club, Eric Clapton, Bad Company, America, Van Morrison, Neil Diamond, Queen and more.
Dinner includes a buffet spread with soft drinks or select beverages and a cash bar is available from 11pm onwards.
Tickets can be purchased from the BSPCA Animal Welfare Centre, the BSPCA thrift shop or by calling 66608901 or 35343916.
All proceeds will go towards running the BSPCA shelter and funding the free Catch-Neuter-Release (CNR) scheme for cats and dogs.
The event will be held at The Terrace at Art Rotana in Amwaj.
