The National Brain Appeal is
delighted to invite you to take part in our seventh annual art fundraising
exhibition A Letter in Mind – Everyday Things.
This year we are celebrating
the importance of ‘Everyday Things’, and are delighted to invite you to create
an envelope artwork based on this theme. Your 'Everyday Thing' could be a
favourite mug, a much-loved bag or a well-worn chair. It might be your local community,
a favourite view or your daily music practice. These ‘assistants’ help us
navigate our everyday lives. However predictable and supposedly routine these
‘things’ are it’s often doing, using or seeing them that gives us time and
space to reflect.
already have some fantastic high-profile
creatives who are coming on board. These include designer Zandra Rhodes;
artists Chantal Joffe, Ishbel Myserscough, Morag
Myerscough, Gill Rocca, Mark Dion, Bill Mundy, Mark Entwistle;
illustrators Tim Hopgood and Polly Dunbar; architect Laurie Chetwood; comedian and presenter Jo Brand; journalist and
presenter Andrew Marr; actors Kevin Eldon and
Sophie Thompson; and musicians Terry Hall and Justin Roberston. In recent years
Tracey Emin, Grayson Perry, Antony Gormley, Olafur Eliasson and David Shrigley

The exhibition is currently due to take place from
5-8 November at the Oxo Gallery, London, and on the charity’s online gallery.
All artworks will be exhibited anonymously, priced identically at £85. The
