St Mary’s Art Exhibition
22nd, 22nd, 23rd June 2019
This year we celebrated our 42nd year and again had a successful exhibition as a result of which we were able to raise £2,500 for the Church Restoration Fund.
318 pictures were exhibited from 63 different artists along with a number of unframed paintings/prints and cards. 48 framed paintings were sold along with numerous unframed paintings and cards. Thanks are due to a large number of people who contributed to the success of this event, either in sending out invitations, preparing paperwork, assembling the exhibit, serving teas, acting as stewards or dismantling the event.
We have a separate section of the exhibition on a particular theme. In 2018 the theme was “Angels”. Next year the theme will be “Let there be Light”. Artists can interpret this in anyway they wish and can of course enter other paintings on other subjects for the main exhibition.
New this year was the ability for purchasers to pay by debit or credit card (except American Express). Over two-thirds of our customers paid this way in 2018.
