RESIDENTS are being invited to an art exhibition and auction with proceeds going to the Primrose Hospice.

The exhibition, at Bella Barba on Evesham Road on November 18 from 7pm, showcases the work of artist Kevin Wills.

Kevin will be auctioning off a piece for the hospice, an independent charity, offering advice and support to cancer patients and their families in the area.

He said: "I've been producing art since I was at school but really got back into it since I returned from travelling for two years around Asia and Australia.

"My main work is painting in monochrome effect and a bit like pop art where my main influences come from."

He added: "I have been placing adverts around Redditch in various places and by looking at the feedback I have a fair amount of people who will be attending, as well as someone fairly famous but that is to be confirmed."
