Jeni said of the event “I want this exhibition to be a truly exciting and accessible art event for Aberdeen. It has always been important to me that the artists involved, established as well as up and coming students, be able to share their work with a new and receptive public in an open and inclusive manner while maintaining the joy of experiencing art with our celebratory closing night and thrilling auction. It has required hard work but been so rewarding and I am incredibly proud to be a part this fundraiser and hope it benefits the work of Diabetes Scotland.”
