West Sussex Art Society Christmas Exhibition

Our exhibition at Colonnade House Creative Hub has just ended. We’ve had a fabulous week at this amazing gallery – right in the heart of Worthing. We have made some sales – congratulations to those Society members who sold their work! – and we have raised the profile of the Society. I am adding a new page to this site featuring images from the exhibition, thanks to Marie Vickers and Andrew Griffiths for taking some lovely shots. It’s hoped that these can all be transferred to our new Society website, coming soon!

The Juliet Pannett Award this year was given to Mary Russell for her stunning painting of Koi carp. Highly commended certificates were awarded to Pam Baker, Marina Burgess and Ninette Chapman.

We had a lively Private View evening on Thursday 7th December and although I couldn’t stay until the end I was told the gallery was full right up until 8pm. Colonnade House is a new venue for us and we all agree it has been a great space to show our work, especially in this run-up to Christmas.

I’ve had a great time putting together this website, while I have had the honour of being Exhibition Organiser for the Society. The site features images from the last four Society exhibitions, from 2014 to 2017, as well as other exhibitions in which Society members have taken part.

I’ve really enjoyed working with other committee and Society members. Between us we have created four lovely exhibitions that showcase the artwork of our talented members. ┬áIt is now time for someone else to step into my shoes, as Exhibition Organiser, and create another beautiful show. I have booked the space and look forward to the next exhibition in March 2019.
