Our Exhibition Plans
We are planning an Autumn Exhibition at the Village Hall in Shalford. Details are being organised now. This venue has plenty of space, good facilities and a good free car park.
A Spring 2022 Pop-up at Holy Trinity Church is now likely for Saturday 4 June. Details to be announced later.
SELECTION DAY FOR EXHIBITING MEMBERS
Due to the exceptional circumstances generated by Covid 19 and the impact it is having, we have decided to defer Selection Day until July 2022 when it is hoped that the situation will have improved. Usually, the Spring Exhibition is for all members and the Autumn Exhibition is for exhibiting members only. However as the Spring Exhibition had to be cancelled in 2021 the 2021 Autumn Exhibition it will be for all members.

2019 Autumn Exhibition at West Horsley Place
This was our last show before Covid and therefore is a bit of history. It was for Exhibiting Members at West Horsley Place, Epsom Road, West Horsley, KT24 6AN.
It ran from Saturday 2nd to Sunday 10 November 2019. Volunteers helped run the show as always.
As part of ensuring the quality of the showed works, browsers were priced at £50 or above. Artists submitted two paintings each priced at £100 or above. Limited edition prints of works exhibited sold for at least £50. The exhibition did not include cards.
The Exhibition was a great success. Sales at the show were £14,500. 71 paintings and browser items were sold from 31 artists. Visitors spent a considerable amount of time at the show.
Stewards volunteered by using the stewards form that is part of the entry form to declare their interest.
