TJILI ‘FEATURED ARTIST’ EXHIBITION

Dates: Tue 9 Jan - Sun 4 Feb 2018

Venue: Rum’s Eg, 27 Bell Street, Romsey, SO51 8GY

TJILI’s beautiful artwork will be showcased as one of four ‘featured artists’ exhibiting at Rum's Eg art gallery in her home-town of Romsey.

On selected dates between 9 Jan and 4 Feb 2018 you can meet TJILI in person and watch her painting live; her unique art-style is something that needs to be seen to be believed!

TJILI will also be demonstrating her amazing Rubik's Cube and origami skills and – following on from 'The One Show' film about TJILI's amazing life story – her parents, James and Vik Grant Wetherill, will be sharing more insights and behind-the-scenes details and answering questions.

In addition to viewing TJILI’s gorgeous artwork first hand, we are launching a lovely range of art-gifts including 'Artist’s Squares' (silk scarves, see the 'Tyga' design below) and TJILI's new 'Art-Cubes', a Special Edition range of art-puzzles created by TJILI in official partnership with the legendary Rubik’s group.

You will also have the opportunity to see / buy Tanzania’s recently released 'Wildlife of Africa' stamps that feature four paintings from TJILI’s ‘Colourful Creatures’ collection!

The January 'Featured Makers' programme includes creations by ceramicist Dave Sutherland, textile creator Helen Murchie, and painter Lynne Reeves.

Proceeds raised from the sale of TJILI’s work at Rum’s Eg art gallery will support her ongoing personal development including art tuition and materials, education and specialist therapies.

We hope to see you there!! x
