Rowan’s ‘The Great Outdoors’ Charity Art Exhibition

Get creative and help raise funds for adults with learning disabilities

Rowan is a Cambridge based arts centre and charity where people with learning disabilities work alongside artists in their choice of woodwork, ceramics, printmaking, textiles, mixed media, the performing arts and Forest School.

‘The Great Outdoors’ Charity Art Exhibition


We are holding our 3rd art exhibition to raise funds for our student artists as we continue to support them day-to-day at Rowan as well as virtually. At our last exhibition, held in February 2020, we had over 150 people involved with 172 canvases on display raising over £6000. We have decided to take the bull by the horns and go ahead with an exhibition for 2021 and we would love for you to be involved!

The exhibition, next February, gives all artists the chance to make a real difference, either by producing artwork for sale or through buying at the exhibition. This event is open to any artist – novice, amateur and professional alike. This year it is time to explore The Great Outdoors! Through landscape / cityscape / animals / birds / plant life / holidays / adventure activities / camping / gardens / fantasy – the possibilities are endless!

Canvases can now be pre-ordered to purchase from Rowan and are just £10 or get in touch to organise a click and collect service. Contact Hetti on or call 01223 566027.
