MEMBERS' SUMMER EXHIBITION
27th August - 5th September 2016
at St Laurence's Church, Ludlow
10.00am to 5.00pm daily
This show is quite a special one for us, as it is our 70th Anniversary Summer Exhibition show. Huge thanks must go to the exhibition sub-Committee and to everyone who helped put the show together, including of course the wonderful staff at St Laurence's.
We formally opened our show with some warm words from Councillor Paul Draper, the Mayor of Ludlow, at a well-attended preview evening. You'll find in our show a collection of drawings (including a selection of charcoals from our President, Charles MacCarthy), paintings and sculptures, as well as a rack of cards, but we also have two new and exciting exhibits - firstly, the Anniversary Art Project, a collection of artworks created to be displayed at this event, and then to be turned into a printed book later in the year, and secondly a multimedia section courtesy of the Words for Art project, a collaboration of film-makers, artists and poets.
Below you'll find a selection of works from the show, but of course this is only the merest hint - if you want to see it all, you'll have to go there in person!
