BEST SHOW EVER
The 2019 show was the best ever with 24 paintings sold and 670 visitors over the three days.
"We were preparing for the worst in terms of sales," said Society Chairman Sue Gentry "as everyone is so gloomy right now with all the uncertainty in the political world, but we were pleasantly surprised with the results. Art is uplifting whether it be creating your own piece of art or enjoying seeing someone else's and I think we provided a colourful lift to the spirits for everyone who came to see the show."
The exhibition was sponsored by Hellards estate agents who attended the Society's Preview party the night before it opened to the public and Sharon Hurst was the celebrity artist who officially declared the exhibition open.
The People's Choice winner was Taking a Dip by Jeannie Pakenham, Best Watercolour - Meeting Point by Alice Green-Aernout, Best Acrylic - Scenic Symmetry by Jenny Kennish, Best Mixed Media - Jill Jennings, Best Oil - Oranges in a Bowl by Mike Dudfield, Best 3D - Bear with Salmon by Alice Green-Aernout and Best New Exhibitor - Barbara Walker with Pot Luck.
