Otago MS Society Hosting National Art Exhibition


Otago MS Society Hosting National Art Exhibition

The Otago MS Society is now accepting art-works on paper and canvas, sculpture and ceramics from people with multiple sclerosis throughout New Zealand.

Event organiser Beverly Glenn advises that the exhibition, entitled “The Otago MS Wobbly Art Exhibition”, is timed to coincide with the National MS Awareness Week from the 2nd to the 8th September 2005.

The exhibition will be formally opened at the Dunedin Community Gallery, Princes Street, Dunedin on Friday 2nd September, and be open to the public from the 3rd September to the 8th September, 10.00 a.m. till 4.00 pm.

Multiple Sclerosis or ‘MS’, affects approximately 3,500 people in NZ, with about 55% being female and 45% male.

“This exhibition aims to promote awareness of MS and encourage people with MS to participate and display their creative talents”, Beverly says. “20% of each art work sold will go to the Otago MS Society, so your support will be greatly valued.”

The Otago MS Society provides practical and personal assistance, information, support and education for people with MS.

Anyone with MS interested in exhibiting their works at the Otago MS Wobbly Art Exhibition, or wanting to know more, should contact Beverly Glenn (03) 473 9119 or email msadmin@actrix.co.nz
