Autumn Exhibition 2016

This morning we dismantled the Autumn exhibition at Worthing Museum. The show had attracted a lot of interest with three new pages of very complimentary comments in the Society’s comments book. Thanks to everyone who helped out.

The show was opened by Worthing town crier and councillor Bob Smytherman, dressed in his full regalia, at our preview afternoon on the 5th November. Dramatically ringing his bell and apparently reining in his performance, although you wouldn’t know it, he declared the image-3exhibition open and awarded the Juliet Pannett Rose Bowl to Michelle Watson and the highly commended certificates to Jane Keeley and Audrey Lee. Michelle’s painting had particular significance for Bob and artwork by the runners up also spoke to him on a very personal level. We are very grateful to Bob for giving up his time to judge the show, especially as he had other commitments on that day.

There is a new page on this site showing photos of┬áthe exhibition. I am also hoping to take some photos of Society members’ artwork in the Worthing Open Exhibition at the Museum, which started on Saturday. I can then add these to this website. I will be asking the Museum for permission in the next few weeks. The Society is well represented in the Worthing Open. Congratulations to all those who were able to get their artwork accepted. Competition was tough and there was definitely an element of pot-luck!
