The Art Group

Drawing, painting, pastels … art for your enjoyment

The 2021 Art Exhibition was a great success this year, particularly as we were able to hold it at the Church, a wonderful celebration of art from our Art Group as well as from many artists in the area. We had so many wonderful comments about the work as well as how much visitors enjoyed the event as a whole.

Visitors to the exhibition were able to vote for their favourite piece of art. Mayor of Wellington, Dorothy Roberts presented prizes to the adult’s winner Frank Hilton for his wonderful ‘Passing storm’ painting and to the children’s public vote winner Michaaeel Rangzabh, for his super interpretation of ‘Autumn’.

All proceeds from the Art Exhibition, after expenses, were donated to the Church.

The Art Group enjoyed an inspirational session at the end of the Autumn term, Sandy Densem, an artist based in Shropshire, came along to give a talk about her work and to demonstrate how to do Monoprinting. Everyone enjoyed the day with Sandy, especially having a go with this very exciting media.
