2019 Autumn Exhibition at West Horsley Place
This ran for Exhibiting Members at West Horsley Place, Epsom Road, West Horsley, KT24 6AN. This is just off the Epsom Road on the north side.
It ran from Saturday 2nd to Sunday 10 November 2019. Volunteers helped run the show and will be needed next year as well.
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 and the visitors spent a considerable amount of time at the show and were very conversational, particularly with artists who were stewarding.
Stewards were able to volunteer by using the stewards form that is part of the entry form to declare their interest.
