‘A Dazzling Social Occasion’

In the words of our patron, author of ‘The Gruffalo’,
Julia Donaldson:

‘Art Off the Rocks is a wonderful and festive event, raising money for Artlink Central in the most enjoyable way imaginable. As well as the excitement of the auction of works of art by well known Scottish artists, there are pillars plastered in intriguing postcards, stalls full of artistic Christmas presents, and good food, drink and company.

I am still totally in love with the ceramic zebra which I successfully bid for in 2008 and which now graces my hall table. On that occasion over £30,000 was raised to help finance projects which will benefit adults and children from disadvantaged groups in the Central Belt of Scotland, and I hope that this achievement will be repeated or even bettered in 2010.’
