Falmouth Art Society annual exhibition
1:00pm Sunday 29th September 2013 in News
Falmouth Arts Society’s annual exhibition is currently being housed at the town’s Methodist Church on The Moor and promises to be an evolving display as paintings are sold and replaced.
The exhibition is open daily, except Sundays, from 10am and 5pm and runs until October 5.
As in previous years, visitors are asked to vote for their favourite painting on display and the artist with the most votes will be awarded the Packet Trophy which will be presented by Packet editor, Paul Armstrong, on the final day of the exhibition.
Falmouth Arts Society boasts between 60 and 70 members and has a waiting list of artists wanting to join. Thirty-six members have work on display this year, with all mediums represented from watercolours and pastels to oils and abstract.
“Though traditional art is in the majority, there are enough contemporary pieces to cater for most tastes,” said exhibition secretary Brenda Barratt.
“And of course, Cornwall in all its moods and seasons, is the inspiration for most of the artists. During this year, the society has welcomed several new members who have added fresh new talent and ideas to the existing group of talented artists.”
The exhibition has been hung in a slightly different way from previous years with artists’ work group together to make it easier for visitors to choose between different paintings.
Last year’s exhibition was “an amazing success” and the society is hoping this year’s will be just as good, in both visitor numbers and the number of paintings sold.
