Yvonne Roberts has an exhibition coming up soon at St Paul’s Centre in Worthing. ‘Protect and Sustain’ will run from 4th August to the 31st August so there’s plenty of time to get along there to see Yvonne’s artwork. It’s a great place to grab a coffee too – or lunch if you have the time. Good luck with the show Yvonne!
Society member Sehila Craft is one of 50 artists showing her artwork at the Towner in Eastbourne as part of the Sussex Open Exhibition. The show runs until 1st October and entry is free. Sehila’s painting, ‘Bonnard’s jug’ is in the room to your right as you enter the gallery. Well done Sehila for being selected for this prestigious show.
Society member Ray Skingley will be exhibiting his artwork alongside other members of the Arun Art Society in their 2017 exhibition. The show takes place at Ferring Village Hall from Monday 31st July until Saturday 5th August, opening from 10am-5.30pm. On Thursday 3rd August the exhibition will open from 10am-8pm. Admission is free. During the exhibition there will be a raffle in aid of St Barnabas Hospice – the prize is a painting by a well-known artist – who that artist is I’m afraid the poster doesn’t reveal! Ray invites you along to find out, and to see his latest artwork!
I hope we have all now recovered from the 2017 Art Trail. My house is almost back to normal! Congratulations to all those Society members who took part this year and who sold work to visitors from near and far. Thanks to those who promoted the Society and who showed the local community the high standard of artwork created by Society members. I’ve added a new page under ‘Exhibitions’ for your photos of the trail and hope that you will send your images to me to be included on the page. Here is a landscape by our chairman Andrew, from Venue 65.
All this creativity bodes well for our Society exhibition this year. I’m really looking forward to the show at Colonnade House Gallery in December. I know it’s going to be a knockout exhibition during the run up to Christmas and with a display of affordable paintings, sculpture, textiles and more, as well as cards and Christmas decorations, in a gallery right in the heart of Worthing, Society members have a really good chance of making some sales. So start creating!
