SPECIAL prints by popular UK artist Danny Abrahams are being sold to at an exhibition to help raise money for a Skipton children's charity.

Following a career as a musician Danny, from Bradford, turned to art when his band split up in 2010.

He has not looked back since and he has had a number of sell out exhibitions since.

AC Gallery, at 2 Victoria Street, Skipton, has been working with Danny, and his work will be exhibited at the gallery from this Saturday to Saturday, July 15.

Danny himself will be in attendance at a showcase event this Saturday from noon to 3pm.

This year Danny produced a special painting which was auctioned for the Principle Trust, a Skipton-based children's charity.

The original fetched over £700 and AC Gallery now has special prints available, with a percentage of all sales going to the charity.

AC Gallery owner Mike Baggs said: “Danny is a very genuine, and very down to earth bloke. It's been a pleasure to have worked with him for a number of years now, as publisher and gallery, and to see his popularity grow in the way it has is a testament to his dedication and hard work.

“His paintings tell stories, and they connect with so many people – we can all remember happy days as kids riding bikes, flying kites, kicking a ball around, it was the simple pleasures and a way of life that seems to have got lost.

“Danny was keen to do something to help underprivileged kids and he felt that the Principle Trust was an excellent charity so we set up the prints and Danny donated the original. It’s a cracking image and we hope it will help raise more

money for them.

“Alongside these prints we will have the full print collection on show, a couple of sold out pieces, and around eight

original paintings on sale. The show will be well worth a visit.”
