Summer Exhibition – Last Few Days!

Amazing that our Summer Exhibition for 2022 is nearly over. It ends on Wednesday afternoon (10 August) around 3 pm, with a very quick break down and collection of unsold works. If you have not visited yet, you still have time, though.

So Many Sales

We’ve had so many sales you’d think that there would be nothing left for collection. But artists have brought in their reserve pieces to fill in the spaces, and Barry’s artful displays have continued to make an excellent display of them all.

As of Sunday evening, the totals are as follows:

  • We have sold 31 framed, canvas or 3D works
  • 22 artists have sold at least one work
  • 31 artists have sold a total of 680 single cards or packs!
  • 13 artists have sold 20 browser items

Hillier Gardens and Cream Tea

Saturday 21st May 22

It was one of those days at Sir Harold Hillier Gardens when you hope the weather forecast is accurate, having planned a day without a brolly! Large grey clouds trundled across the horizon at regular intervals, but the sun triumphed and provided us with lovely warm spells, just enough to keep the coat off and not shiver. Artists were hidden in crevasses throughout the gardens, and cameras were out in force. Well done to all who ‘got on with it’ and produced a sketchpad or paints.  It takes some confidence to paint ‘au plein air’, but once settled it is such a lovely way to spend a few hours.
