St Mary's Art Exhibition
19, 20, 21 June 2020
In 2019 we celebrated our 43rd year and again had a successful exhibition as a result of which we were able to raise £2,000 for the Church Restoration Fund.
257 pictures were exhibited from 52 different artists along with a number of unframed paintings/prints, cards and ceramics. There were numerous comments on the high quality of work on display and on the layout of the exhibition in general.
We invested in 20 new lights this year and intend to purchase more for 2020 so that all of the boards will be lit eventually. We are also improving our advertising with new, rigid A2 posters that have been purchased thanks to a grant from the Locality Budget of Cathy Guthrie, our District Councillor. We are still working on the details but we hope to have other activities alongside this year’s exhibition. Details will appear on this website once they are finalised.
Thanks are due to a large number of people who contribute to the success of this event, either in sending out invitations, preparing paperwork, assembling the exhibition, serving teas, acting as stewards or dismantling the event and also our talented exhibitors.
As usual there is a separate themed section in addition to the main exhibition. The theme for 2020 is “Creation”
