From 5th November, Newark’s elegant 18th century Buttermarket building will become an unmissable event showcasing the work of over 40 professional artists and sculptors, brought together to create a breath-taking display of raw emotion.

‘Six Million White Roses’ is a unique exhibition dedicated to the six million Jews murdered in the Holocaust, victims of war worldwide, and those who stand up to hatred. This charity event, organised and curated by Susi Wright of Meander and Mooch Gallery, artist Lynne Whitfield, and Jill Robinson of The National Holocaust Centre, aims to hit the observer squarely between the eyes, taking them on a rollercoaster of emotion, that is uplifting, thought provoking and humbling.

This exhibition, which intends to pull no punches, includes work by Ruth Schweining glass artist and Holocaust survivor, Tom Voyce winner of Sky Landscape Artist of the Year 2017, internationally acclaimed artist Harry Charles Tim, East Midlands sculptors Nita Rao and Jennie McCall, ceramicists Jillian Riley and Soo Durham and many more.

The public can immerse themselves in this event from Saturday 5th to Saturday 26th November daily (except Sundays) from 10.00am to 3.30pm at The Buttermarket, Town Square, Newark on Trent NG24 1BY. Admission is free. Children aged under 15 must be accompanied.
