Following another excellent response from our members, this year’s summer exhibition began with the submission of works on 13th July (see photos above). Thirty-one artists submitted 56 works. During the hand in members were invited for refreshments, hosted by the Contemporary Art Club in the Learning room. It was interesting to hear about the various views and opinions held by others on the art scene.
A group of volunteers set out the artwork to maximise on presentation then, working in two teams, proceeded to hang the works. With some minor adjustments the exhibition was in place by 3pm the same day.
The perennial preview took place in the evening of 15th July. Hosted by our Chairman, Geoff Mills, this was attended by over 70 members and guests who enjoyed the evening, viewing the work accompanied by a light buffet with drinks.
A good number of members volunteered to invigilate during the course of the exhibition, which at the time of writing is on-going. The Exhibition will end on 2nd August.
Many thanks to all those who submitted art work, our volunteer organisers and helpers and the galley staff for the loan of tools and equipment and other furniture and facilities that helped the process run smoothly.
