About the Artist – Helen Leigh:
Helen Leigh has been an artist for 13 years and has had 5 major exhibitions including 2 charity auctions for the Cancer Society & Christchurch City Mission.

Her Art is a Celebration of Colour and Animals, she experiments with the personification of inanimate objects and giving them human qualities which is designed to provoke a feeling; (subconscious or otherwise) in the viewer of our connection to all things & to remind us that all things Feel, grow, and have their place alongside us to reciprocally enjoy.

This show is about the feelings evoked in the 'Spirit' through the medium of Helen's favourite subject: Animals. And is to pass on what she loves in order to raise money so she can also do what she loves! Please support her!

Achknowledgements:
This wouldn't have happened if it weren't for the kindness of the: 'Exchange – XCHC Art Gallery' who have so generously offered this exhibition space for Helen to fundraise. From start to finish they have been amazingly supportive and so I urge you to support them, not only buy buying your drinks on the exhibition opening night, but by also supporting the Gallery to help other Artists/Creatives too.

- XCHC has kindly sponsored the venue for this event. They believe space should always be available for creativity and community use. If you agree and want to show your support, you can become a member and receive exclusive content, updates, prizes, and a signature XCHC wristband.

For as little as 1 coffee/beer a month, you can help us create a stronger creative ecosystem, and a more vibrant and connected city!
