Our Spring Exhibition & Sale on Saturday 2nd May was a fantastic success showcasing beautiful work from over 20 local artists. It was a great opportunity to meet the artists, watch demonstrations and find that perfect piece of art.
Visitors tried their hand at the still life - the winner of the competition was M Huxley from Timsbury who won a selection of artist greeting cards plus a print by Kate Westcott for a wonderful study of tulips. B George of High Littleton won the children's colouring competition and received a framed blackbird print.
We are now planning our summer art events around our local villages and are setting the wheels in motion for registration for our annual Arts Trail held in November - this year it is on the 7th & 8th November. Registration for the November trail will open in June. If you would like us to email you a registration form please let us know via the contact page.
We look forward to you joining our events.
