Artist Roz James will be selling pieces of her abstract flow art as well as other items to raise money for the animal charity

ASH MAER MARBELLA.

A red-carpet art exhibition in aid of a local animal charity will be held in Marbella on 19 November.

The event is being organised by local British artist Roz James in aid of the Triple A Animal Shelter. It's hoped that several hundred euros will be raised by selling dozens of "abstract fluid art" paintings during the event.

Visitors to the fundraising event will also be able to have their picture taken on a red carpet outside Bar Tamesis.

Roz, 63, who is originally from Surrey, and moved to Spain 19 years ago, told SUR in English: "There will be between 35 to 40 pieces of handmade art for sale and gifts including vases, candle holders and olive oil pourers — all decorated in abstract flow art.

"The prices will range from 5 euros to 100 euros. I just want to make money for the charity, as it's important to give back." Roz added that all profits from the sales will be given to the charity.

So far this year, Roz has raised 610 euros for Triple A by selling her art — and she hopes to reach 1,000 euros during a final push for the charity at the exhibition. She continued: "A lot of people don't know what abstract fluid art, which is a science in itself. The art of manipulating paint in different forms to create amazing designs. Using heat, air, water and lots of imagination and everyday objects to make the paint flow and react in different ways."

The event starts at 7.30pm at Bar Tamesis, Avenida Arias Maldonado, Marbella.
