Mushroom Works, Newcastle: Jane Smallcombe, opening of her Art Studio

22 November 2019 @ 18:00

From Bede Woods, Secretary of Monkton Ward Labour Party in Jarrow.

Jane Smallcombe has supported the Monkton Ward and Jarrow CLP behind the scenes for several years. Lately, she has helped both the CLP Woman’s Officer and the Fund Raiser in relation to our high profile speakers. She has herself personally created, at very short notice, an exceptional artwork for us and helped commission unique pieces of art for presentation gifts.

This amazingly talented artist, who lives with us in the Monkton Ward, put together a piece that took Baroness Shami Chakrabati’s breath away. Jane didn’t subsequently hog the limelight but instead introduced others from her art collective studios to share in having their creations presented to speakers such as Ken Loach, Emily Thornberry and Ricky Tomlinson. 

Join us to support Jane Smallcombe

So when I heard about the annual 20/20 art exhibition http://www.mushroomworks.com/open-studios-2019 I thought we should return the favour by supporting Jane and her colleagues who have assisted our cause. A small group from our ward are going to meet outside the Mushroom Works in Newcastle at 6.00pm on Friday 22nd November.

Jane has only recently moved to a new space in this location. This is an opportunity to acquire original art from several local artists in person at a bargain price! It’s also a chance to lift our minds and spirits, dress up and have a cultural injection. Hope you can come as well.
