Annual Wolsingham art show set to attract more than 40 artists
11:22am Monday 19th August 2013 in News
MORE than 40 artists will be displaying almost 200 pieces of work at a town’s annual exhibition next week.
This year sees the 13th Wolsingham Art exhibition and organisers of the annual event in the County Durham town have promised the best show yet.
Co-organiser Sue Weston said: “We have some 40 different artists exhibiting almost 200 pieces of work, largely paintings, and we are delighted to be able to say that a quarter of these are new artists, exhibiting with us for the first time.
“Several of our exhibitors are fine arts graduates, a number have exhibited previously at national and international events and at least one was shortlisted this year for the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition - the range and wealth of talent is huge and the majority of them are based here in the dales and North-East region.”
The aim of the exhibition is to provide artists with a friendly environment to showcase their work.
Ms Weston said: “We believe that this exhibition is an opportunity for people to see probably some of the best examples of works by local artists; there is no charge for entry so visitors may wander and view at their leisure.
“All the exhibits are for sale and several of the artists have previously accepted individual commissions for portraits or other work.”
The exhibition at the Church Hall on Rectory Lane opens with a preview evening on Friday, August 23, at 7pm, then runs daily from 11am to 5pm over the weekend and on Monday, August 26.
