Writtle Art Group held their annual Spring Exhibition in the Village Hall on the weekend before Easter. Fortunately the weather was kind and a steady flow of visitors turned out to view another display of varied and highly talented work. Attendance figures were 271 over the two days, up by more than 50 on last Autumn’s exhibition. A total of 285 paintings were on show, of which 38 were sold to the buying public for an impressive sum of £1,424.
On display for a charity raffle was a rural street scene donated by the Suffolk artist, Reg Siger, who had demonstrated his use of ink and acrylic watercolours to the Writtle Art Group on 26th February. With generous support from the public, a total of £174 was raised from the raffle for Farleigh Hospice. The winning ticket was number 190 with the painting going to a local Writtle resident.
Below are some of the paintings shown at our latest exhibition.
