Tommy Fitchet has an art gallery in Stockbridge and at the moment some of the proceeds from the sale of his colourful artworks is going to charity.
He has 100 pieces that form his third charity exhibition, ‘100/100/2019’, at Saorsa Art Gallery to raise money for Cancer Research.
The first fundraiser, ‘100/100’, comprising 100 small paintings priced at £100 each, raised £5,000. In 2017, a second exhibition raised more than £4,000 for CHAS (Children’s Hospices Around Scotland) and Cancer Research.
After Tommy’s mother was treated for cancer Tommy launched his first charity exhibition in 2016 to raise money for Cancer Research. ‘Like many people, my life has been affected by cancer,’ he explains. ‘My mum was lucky, her cancer was caught early on, but she had four younger sisters and in the space of ten years lost all of them to cancer.’
This year’s exhibition will include the evocative small paintings – approximately 22cm x 22cm – as well as larger landscapes and seascapes from the artist’s travels around Scotland and beyond. Prices start from £100, with 25% of every painting sold going to Cancer Research.
