Brighton YMCA’s ‘Amazing’Christmas Artist Open House at Williams Collier House

On the 10th December 2016, over 120 people viewed the Artwork of residents living at William Collier House, branding the second Artist Open House Exhibition a huge SUCCESS!!!

Neil Quinn won the competition this time round, and we hope his beautiful drawing will be published in the Big Issue in January 2017.

The Manager of William Collier house would like to thank all those involved in making this a fantastic event, in particular to Paul, Ziggy and Jane for providing some art works and Tabatha, Belinda, Steph and Kirsten for working really hard on the day! The biscuits were a lovely touch, thank you to the bakers! And of course, last but not least, HUGE thanks to all the artists on behalf of Brighton YMCA for working hard to show your amazing talent!
