New art works at town hall will help older people

The Maidenhead town hall cafe has teamed up with Art on the Street to exhibit changing art works.

The Gallery at Rendezvous, in St Ives Road, is the latest community art project for Art on the Street.

Twenty per cent of the profits of any artwork sold will go to Age Concern Slough and Berkshire East who run the cafe.

Marie-Anne Leonard, of Art on the Street, said: "This fantastic space is completely free for local artists to exhibit in and we want to keep a fresh flow of work here, changing regularly.

"It's a perfectly situated community art space and sits perfectly with our ethos – the commission from sales flows directly back into the community and to those who need it most."

Chief executive Tracey Morgan said: "Not only do these lovely paintings brighten up the space around our cafe but it gives local artists an opportunity to display their work and help local older people at the same time."
