Raising Funds at Christmas
Before Emerson threw himself fully into producing work for the Mercer Gallery's Force of Nature exhibition he thought he'd use November to experiment with a new technique while also helping a fantastic local charity at Christmas-time.
Supporting Older People is a Harogate-based charity who work to alleviate loneliness and isolation often experienced by older people living on their own.
The Biscuit Factory
New drypoints will be heading up to Newcastle in time for Christmas. Contact the Biscuit Factory for more details.
