Sophie Lancaster Foundation Launches Art Exhibition
There’s to be an exhibition of paintings in Manchester next month, with the aim of raising money and awareness for the Sophie Lancaster Foundation.
For those who don’t know, Sophie Lancaster was murdered on August 11, 2007, following an unprovoked assault.
Robert Maltby, her boyfriend (pictured with Sophie), has come up with a series of paintings celebrating her life and philosophy. This will be launched on Thursday, June 3 at the Black Dog Ballroom in Church Street, Manchester from 5-8pm. From there, it’ll be held for four weeks at Afflecks in the city.
Jackson Guitars have donated a JS Dinky model, which has been painted by Maltby and is to be auctioned at the launch night. Jackson Guitars will also be taking a guitar to all festivals and awards shows, with the aim of getting it signed by as many people as possible, before auctioning it on behalf of the Foundation.
