Rainbows Hospice Fund-Raiser

The Lord’s Prayer, engraved on a speck of gold inserted into the eye of a needle.

An Evening With Graham Short to raise money for Rainbows Children’s Hospice in leicestershire, will be held on Friday May 19th at Woodhouse Community Hall (LE12 8TZ).

Graham is a world famous micro-artist. You may have seen news footage about his work including The Lord’s Prayer, engraved on a fleck of gold mounted inside the eye of a needle. This particular work of art is estimated to be valued at £250,000.

Doors open at 7pm for a 7:30pm start. Graham will do 2 x 45 minute halves with a break in between so people can chat to him and view some art work. The hall seats 77 and tickets are £7.50 each. There’s parking at the hall.

The contact for tickets or more information is info@aegf.co.uk or 01530 224579.

Graham Short

Graham Short, known in the art world as “The Hands of Genius” is a man of unusual talent who has developed the ability to work between heart-beats. He gives the most amazing and highly entertaining PowerPoint presentation. The story of his life was shown at an International Film Festival in Hollywood, and he has appeared in news items in 58 countries around the world. He has amusing stories to tell of the rich and famous people, including the Royals, whom he has met and worked with, over the years.

Graham’s microscopic masterpieces (engravings invisible to the naked eye) continue to rise in value. He has completed 48 pieces so far. Graham only produces four items per year, making him one of the most collectable and fascinating living artists around today.

Six years ago, he started a nationwide hunt when he engraved Jane Austen on four £5 notes, which were valued at £50,000, then travelled around the UK spending them in shops.

Thank you for reading my blog and for leaving comments. I really hope Graham’s evening will be a huge success and the organisers raise lots of money for Rainbows hospice.
