Summer Exhibition

A Walk in Frith Wood voted Best in Show
Our exhibition was well received by the public many of whom commented on the attractive way the pictures were displayed and the variety of styles. Many remarked on the wonderful and welcoming display of flowers as they reached the top of the stairs. Many thanks to Sue Embrey who provided the flowers from her garden.

With the exhibition extended for an extra three days we recorded a total of 540 visitors - 157 came on Community Day. Thank you to all the visitors who voted for the Best in Show. Not an easy choice with 71 paintings to consider. The winning painting was A Walk in Frith Wood, by Ian Fountaine. The runner up was Bergen
Winner and runner up
Alleys
, by Colin Harries. I'm glad to say both paintings were among the ten that sold. A further three paintings from the print browsers also sold as did 144 cards.

Thank you to everyone who was involved in organising, hanging or stewarding and particular thanks to the seventeen artists who exhibited.

A number of members were not able to exhibit this time but we hope that most of them will be able to take part in the Christmas Exhibition - 20 to 25 November.
