I’m excited to announce that I will be exhibiting some of my new work at Emsworth Artists 2015 Summer Exhibition. The exhibition takes place between Saturday 29th August and Wednesday 2nd September at the Emsworth Community Centre.
On the Friday evening (28th August) we have a Private View at 8.00 pm. Last year 210 visitors attended. This is an ideal opportunity to mingle with the Artists, get the first look at the Exhibition and of course enjoy a glass of wine with us to celebrate another Emsworth Artists Summer Showcase. If you are reading this and would like to come along, then please do!
There is a lot to see and do as the public are asked to vote for their favourite paintings, creating interest for all our visitors, particulalry the younger ones.
There are two Awards each year, which are presented at the close of the Exhibition. The Sydney Stokes Award is a candlestìck donated by the widow of Sydney Stokes, Flora, in memory of Sydney whose retrospective exhibition 26 years ago was the start of the Emsworth Artists. (I was excited to come joint 3rd last year for my Studland Bay monoprint).
The second award is the Mountford Award for Watercolour. Laurence Mountford was a founder member of Emsworth Artists. He and his wife Sheila were active patrons and supporters of the Community Centre and funded the building of the Mountford Rooms where our Exhibition is held.
