Stacey Forsey – Charity Art Exhibition #RHOC S4

Charity Art Exhibition #RHOC S4

29 April 2017

You may of all seen snipits of the charity art exhibition I held back in series 4. It was last year, January 2016, that I decided wanted to raise as much money as I could for all three charities that I support. As you know painting and hosting events are my love so I decided to combine the two. I set out to paint at least 10 paintings that I would exhibit and auction off.

After 6 months of painting throughout the night whilst filming RHOC in the day I managed to paint 14 paintings. We had the venue and invitations set. The exhibition was to be held at Victoria WareHouse in Manchester. Where better than a venue like this with a huge, bare bricked area to hang the paintings.

Guests included art collectors, property developers, celebrities, friends and family. All charities attended and the night was an amazing success!!

I managed to sell 10 of the 14 paintings and raised £12,000! I can’t tell you how pleased I was and the money all went to help the 3 fantastic charities.

All hard work paid off, more money raised to help CBUK, Action on Addiction and Coffee For Craig Street Kitchen.
