JUNE 2019 NEWSLETTER
Here is the June 2019 newsletter:
start the month off with a bit of a bang – our first exhibition of 2019 in the
Lacock Village Hall. We hung approximately 150 pieces of artwork and displayed
umpteen pieces of art in the browsers and as art-cards whilst at the same time
Mary and her crew served gallons of tea and coffee and filled everyone up with
scones and cake.
We sold 5 pieces of art (well done Joy for
selling 3 of them!) and 68 art-cards so well done everyone for putting so much
work into the weekend and displaying some excellent artwork. In comparison, at
the same exhibition last year we sold 10 paintings (including 2 pieces of A5
art) and 51 art cards – so we are a little down on sales of paintings this year
but it was a very enjoyable weekend with plenty of laughter and good cheer and
an excellent response from the viewing public who appreciated the sheer range
and quality of our art. I would also like to say a big thank you for the way
everyone worked to dismantle the exhibition and clean the halls – there was no
rushing and it took just 30 minutes.
on quickly from the exhibition we have a ‘paint-along’ demonstration by Peter
French using acrylics on Thursday 6th. I will send out more details
of the evening closer to the time.
