Summer Exhibition update & Allenby Award winner

Thank you to all the members that took part in the Summer Exhibition. Overall some very impressive work, which was reflected in the number of visitors (1,195) and total artwork sold making £3,900, which included 73 paintings, prints and 3 dimensional work, along with 209 cards. The visitors were very generous leaving £237 in donations. Yes! The exhibition was a great success.

Thank you to Joyce for facilitating the exhibition, Felicity our Treasurer who did a great job sorting out the finances and making sure everything balanced in the end, and artists were paid promptly. Thanks are also conveyed to Margaret and Di for sorting and paying out monies from the cards

Allenby Award. The picture that had the most votes was by Jane Farleigh. The trophy will be presented at the Christmas dinner.

Also thank you to all the people that helped with setting up, hanging, taking down, and opening / closing and to thank those members who exhibited their artwork for not removing it before 5:45pm on the last day. We had a last minute rush on sales up until 5pm.
