Group Show - The Art of the Athlete

Zari Gallery is delighted to announce the first fundraising collaboration with the Ron Pickering Memorial Fund and the Lloyd Cowan Bursary to showcase the artistic talents of athletes.

“The Art of the Athlete” exhibition will promote art by current and former athletes and raise money for the two organisations to support athletes and coaches.

The exhibition will feature artists from around the globe including Roald Bradstock, aka The “Olympic Picasso”, and Tokyo 800m silver medallist Keely Hodgkinson, who are both contributing. Keely was supported by the Ron Pickering Memorial Fund (RPMF) from the age of 15 and is a keen painter in her spare time.

Olympic 400m Champion Christine Ohuruogu set up the Lloyd Cowan Bursary (LCB) following the death of her legendary coach from Covid-19 in 2021. She said: “It is fantastic to be launching this exhibition with RPMF. Lloyd and Ron were giants of our sport. This is a unique opportunity for athletes and former athletes to showcase their hidden talents and sell their artwork whilst helping us to support the next generation of talent.”
