Exhibition and Sale of Paintings by local Artists

Our Annual Spring Exhibition held over the Easter Weekend was a great success. Held as usual in the Newton Ferrers and Noss Mayo Village Hall, it attracted many visitors, both local and visitors to the village, (nearly 600 over the three days).  They admired the depth of talent and diversity of the artwork on display produced by our society.
Each year the Society chooses a charity to support, this year it was the Red Cross Earthquake Appeal who will also receive a donation from sale of paintings.

The success of the Exhibition is entirely down to all our members who exhibited, a record number of paintings, unframed works and cards were sold.  Thank you to our volunteers who manned the desk. A special thanks must go to one of our artists, Chris Tullett, together with the husbands and partners of the Committee members who come along each year to help with the physical work of moving and erecting the large display boards.

We would also like to thank all the visitors to the exhibition, and a thank you from the artists to the purchasers of their artwork.

We look forward to 2024 and our next exhibition when hopefully we can showcase more of our members’ work.

This year for the first time we put the exhibition on line, to view the paintings which were exhibited please click here

Sally O’Neill- Workshop

Sally’s workshop on Saturday 4th March was all about how colours react using dots and dabs laid next to one another.

This required a fair amount of patience and was quite challenging for those of us who are used to mixing our colours on a palette and not dotting the individual colours next to one another!

Sally was an excellent tutor and very helpful. There was a lot to learn, but it was good to try a different technique and everyone took something away from the day.

A little bit about our Society and our members…….

We are a group of enthusiastic artists who come together to take part in workshops, demonstrations and talks, as well as to exhibit and sell our works at our Annual Easter Exhibition. We also have three small groups who meet up to paint together, two groups at The Parish Room, Yealmpton and one group in The Revelstoke Room, The Village Hall, Noss Mayo.

The Society is committed to encouraging an interest in all genres of painting within the local community. We aim to include all abilities and would welcome new artists – both the young and the more mature, beginners and more experienced.
