THE next exhibition at Brush is ‘LUNGS’, a group art show in honour and celebration of Freya Marilyn Moonbeam Murphy who passed away last year aged 24. Freya was born with Cystic Fibrosis, a genetic disorder that affects mostly the lungs.

The lung is the essential respiration organ in many air-breathing animals, including most tetrapods, a few fish and a few snails. In mammals and the more complex life forms, the two lungs are located near the backbone on either side of the heart. Their principal function is to transport oxygen from the atmosphere into the bloodstream, and to release carbon dioxide from the bloodstream into the atmosphere.

Creatives have been invited to submit work along the theme of Lungs/Life/Breathe.

The exhibition will feature work in all media including painting, illustration, screen print, poetry and song .

Artists involved include Michelle Mildenhall, LEZ, Romany Mark Bruce, Mike Edwards, Will Blood and many more.

The exhibition launches on May 30 with a Private View featuring music by Morlove & Murphy, Live painting by Will Blood and cakes by Twit Twoo Bakery.

The exhibition will run until the end of June.

All profits from the Private View and a percentage of any sales will be donated to The Cystic Fibrosis Trust and The Marletts Hospice.
