Bond girl Fiona Fullerton attends exhibition launch at new gallery in Pershore
A young rising star who is backed by The Prince’s Trust, has launched a collection of her contemporary fine art at a newly opened home interiors and art gallery in Pershore - ‘Persora’.
Artist and entrepreneur Amber-Lauren Ballantyne-Styles work is currently on display in Persora which opened in October 2014. At the VIP launch, Strictly Come Dancing Star - Fiona Fullerton - attended as Amber’s guest of honour.
Persora gallery curator, Aimee Hyde said: “We are exceptionally pleased to be working with Amber-Lauren to display what we believe, will be some of the most iconic fine art on display in the county. For someone so young, her vision and how she applies her personal experiences when putting brush to paper, shows maturity in both her work and how she conducts business.”
Amber, who has worked for and been endorsed by some of the worlds most iconic household names including Pirelli F1 Motorsport, Sir Richard Branson and New York Art Critic, James Skully; says that she is excited about the exhibition.
“I am really excited to be working with Persora. It is an absolutely stunning gallery and retail space and I am exceptionally proud to say that my work is exhibited there - you walk in and its like a little slice of London in the heart of Worcestershire!”
At a recent charity auction in London’s Berkeley Square, Amber donated a painting to raise funds for the Rays of Sunshine Charity. Her work, which was displayed between a Salvador Dali and a Sir Peter Blake, outsold a Tracey Emin. Another piece of her work already has the endorsement of both Fiona Fullerton and Sir Roger Moore and will be auctioned for global charity UNICEF in 2015.
