To complement the exhibition local Artist’s are invited to submit art works using the buttons below. The Art Works or Sculpture must have a theme of a Titanic nature but does not necessary have to have the Titanic in it. The exhibition is to raise funds for the Millvina Dean Lifeboat Appeal, launched to remember the Titanic’s last survivor. The appeal, launched by the Titanic Heritage Trust, aims to deliver the £2.7 million Tamar class lifeboat for the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI), in time for the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic on 15 April 1912. During the exhibition, the public will be able to vote for their favourite work of art ‘The People’s Choice’ from work entered by local Artists on the theme of Titanic. The public’s voting slip will be entered into a draw of which the winner will received a limited edition print of the ‘The People’s Choice’ Art work and the winning artist will receive a 24 carat gold plated 50mm x3.5mm RMS Titanic 2012 Commemorative Medallion. Titanic Alongside this event, Gallery150 will also be hosting a Private View on 14th April and a Titanic Heritage Trust talk, led by Howard Nelson, on Thursday, 21st April 2011 at 7pm.

Although times are tough economically we are confident of achieving the target to allow the RNLI to continue its work in saving lives”. RNLI The RNLI, a charity that depends on voluntary contributions for its income, has been saving lives at sea since 1824. With over 230 lifeboat stations, the volunteer crews provide, the 24-hour, on call lifeboat rescue service up to 100 nautical miles out to sea from the coast of the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland. Last year the charity’s lifeboats launched over 9,000 times, rescuing almost 8,000 people and saving 333 lives that would otherwise have been lost at sea.
