Changing Spaces was delighted to showcase the artwork of seven local artists : Geoff Townson, Ernie Godden, Paddy Sullivan, Anne Townsend, Russell Coulson, Philip Winstone and Wendy Lowis-Bates. Some artists were exhibiting for the first time locally whilst others are well known in the village.
The exhibition opened on Thursday 24th May with a preview evening, when 65 people came along to meet the artists, enjoy a glass of wine, and browse the wide variety of art on display. On Saturday morning we served delicious homemade cakes and coffee, (too good to resist, hang the calories!) and the exhibition closed on Tuesday 29th after a delightful lunchtime concert with Richard Fereday singing Sinatra. We had over 300 visitors to the exhibition (excluding Richard’s concert), and sculptures, paintings and cards have now gone to new homes with both holidaymakers and locals.
A big thank you to all the artists for making it a successful and colourful event, and to all those willing helpers who enabled Changing Spaces raise £641.00 towards making the church a space for all the community to use and enjoy.
