Well, we've only just finished packing up after the 198th Exhibition, but it's already looking like one of our most successful events of recent years. 15 paintings and over 200 cards and prints were sold and there was a steady stream of customers purchasing refreshments at Saturday's café.
Our raffle attracted a lot of interest and many compliments from visitors. We're delighted to announce that the lucky winner is Julie Brown of York. We hope she enjoys her prize of The Old Manse, seen below with its artist Chris Dewire.
Thanks to all the members who exhibited, stewarded, served the teas or helped with the setting up and dismantling. Thanks to Jane Duke for admirably filling the role of Exhibition Selector. Thanks to everyone who gave a demonstration during Meet the Artist Day. Thanks to Lindsay and the rest of our gracious hosts at the De Grey Rooms. But most of all thank you to our Exhibition Secretary Shannon Morgan for crafting this incredibly fun week from the ground up and steering it to a fabulous conclusion.
We look forward to returning to this beautiful venue for the Spring 2014 show. April 14th to 20th 2014 - make a date in your diary now.
