A Good Summer Exhibition

Our summer exhibition has drawn to a close after ten busy days in St. Laurence's church. The preview evening was well attended when the mayor, Tim Gill, formally opened the exhibition. It was pleasing to see more diversity than usual in the types of exhibit, with textile art, stone carving, illustration and abstract painting all represented. There was even a painting that incorporated recycled parts from a computer (and it sold, too - congratulations to Jacquie Langham). It was also lovely to see work by several new members. Our tribute to Marcel Duchamp helped gain publicity in the local press, and this was reflected in the large number of visitors that came to the exhibition. Perhaps the uncertain economic times led to fewer sales than we might have hoped for, but nonetheless we sold over £2,200 of exhibits and we managed to break even financially, despite having hired additional lighting for the exhibition.

Many people deserve a big thankyou for their hard work in making the exhibition happen, not least the exhibition team of Lesley Connolly, Ruth Tune, Anne Fox, Pat Innes, Val Turner. Also Val Alexander for help with hanging (no small job), Samuel Bebb for painting the large poster board, Dave Tedham for taking away and storing all the bits and pieces, Helen Jarvis for counting the "favourite exhibit" slips, plus all those who stewarded and all those who provided the artworks which of course are the whole point of the exhibition. We are grateful to our sponsors for the prizes awarded as follows.
