ARTIST Gerry Selby sold some of his works at the weekend to help raise money for Grantham Hospice.

Gerry, 83, has had a lifelong interest in painting and was able to fulfill his ambition of holding an exhibition, while also helping raise money for charity.

He mentioned the idea casually at a meeting of Grantham Lions Club, and was pleased to get a positive reaction.

The exhibition was held in the Newton Room gallery at Grantham’s Guildhall Arts Centre and Gerry kept prices affordable in the hope of selling as many as possible for the good of the hospice.

All of the paintings on display have been produced in the last 12 years.

Many take their inspiration from the works of world-famous artists like Van Gogh and Vermeer.

Gerry said; “I’ve enjoyed doing them and I hope people enjoy having them.”
