Summer Exhibition 2023 Report
Our second year exhibiting at Shalford proved to be a consistently good choice of venue. Visitor numbers were slightly down on last year but still in the upper hundreds. 40 pieces of artwork sold for £6500 with some after sales likely – not too bad considering the uncertainty in the economy. Feedback regarding the standard of the exhibition was rewarding, with many visitors congratulating the Society on the talent and high standard of the exhibition. One visitor wrote to me with these heart-warming words:
“Thank you for telling me about your art exhibition.
The hour I spent looking at all the amazing work felt very therapeutic for me. I left feeling calmer, with my heart lifted, and in awe of you and your fellow artists’ talents. I hope many people visited!”
What a lovely thing to say!
Thanks as ever go to the fantastic team of helpers, too numerous to mention individually - without whom the exhibition would not work. However - a special mention to the stewarding, which was exceptional. So many stewards were happy to chat to visitors in a relaxed and friendly way but also took time to socialize and get to know each other. You all helped to make a great exhibition with an enjoyable and friendly atmosphere.
So thank you all the exhibition supporters and helpers for my very enjoyable 6 years as Exhibitions Coordinator – a pleasure and a privilege to work with you.
I now step down and wish all the very best to whoever takes over.
Ingrid Skoglund, 2023 Exhibitions Coordinator.
Monica Curley has been appointed and confirmed by the GAS Committee on 17/11/23 as the new Exhibitions Coordinator. She has taken over Ingrid's duties in this area, with help from Ingrid and other colleagues, who have experience and will assist.
