Thirlby Art Group Exhibition

Date: Tuesday, October 11, 2022
Ends: Saturday, October 22, 2022
Time: Tuesdays - Saturdays, 10am-4pm
Duration: 2 weeks

Thirlby Art Group, now in it’s 24th year, are once again holding their annual exhibition at Rural Arts. Back in full swing after the pandemic, the masks are now off and the weekly meetings in Thirlby Village Hall resumed after Christmas, now with fifteen members. The usual talk, coffee and cakes helps this diverse and friendly group to produce work in many different media. You will see Watercolours, Pastels, Oils and Acrylics, Lino Cuts, Pencil Drawings, Collage and, possibly, small Sculpture this year. 

No teaching takes place at the meetings although advice is freely given and many members are persuaded to try something different from time to time. Regular “Challenges” take place when a member will set a task for all to do which may involve using different media or styles. Sometimes the surprising results will make it into the exhibition along with other items produced for sale from members’ original art work. 

Work from Beryl Banks, Pat Beamish, Blanche Carney, Judy Craven, Dilys Dixon, Roger Gillie, Ernest Newton, Helen Owen, David Roberts, Jean Sampson, Pam Sheldrake, Derek Sparks, Paul Thornley, Ingrid Van Vuuren and Lukas Van Vuuren will be seen at the exhibition.
