The 204th Exhibition at the De Grey Rooms, York is well underway with a great turnout of over 200 paintings.
Thank you to all members who entered and who volunteered to help out during the course of the exhibition.
The Preview Night was a great success, launched by Jonathan Newdick, Sculptor and Lecturer at York College, who identified and selected his choice paintings and gave some positive feedback. Born in Yorkshire, Jonathan has been making sculpture for over 30 years and was elected a member of the Royal British Society of Sculptors in 2004. Jonathan works from his studio in York carving sculptures in wood, stone and bronze. Known for designing and sculpting York's famous cat sculptures, Jonathan is also creating semi-abstract and figurative sculptures for public and private commissions to be sited both at home in the UK and more distant locations, in America, Scandinavia and India.
Finally, congratulations to York Art Society member Shirley Davis-Dew whose painting was selected as the overall favourite, by members present.
All unsold work can be collected no earlier than 4pm on Easter Monday. You may also want to visit the York Shambles Art Market on the same day.
