My entries for this year...

October is the month when the Horwich Art Society hold an exhibition for all their members in the local Library. Each member can display a maximum of 6 paintings and when the list of work had to be submitted, I hadn't even got 6 paintings ready, so I had to submit names and then try to paint them afterwards! The cat painting entitled "AMBER" is pretty dreadful but I had no time to try again, so in it goes. "LAVENDER" is pretty poor too, but what could I do? The dog painting "RUBY" has been entered on a Not For Sale basis since it is a portrait of my much loved pet who died recently :-( 

For most members, it's an opportunity to sell work and also have a chance of getting a Highly Commended Award or even to have their name engraved on the Judges Favourite Trophy (which I did a few years ago).

Our PREVIEW EVENING is on Thursday 26th September at 7:15pm Come over and join us for a glass of wine at Horwich Library, Jones Street, BL6 7AJ.

Our Own Art-Club!

Each Friday we go to the local Art-Club in Horwich. It's a thriving club with a broad range of people of all ages and skill-levels. Apart from the regular painting sessions, we have many professional artists visiting us to demonstrate their skills and to run workshops.

But sometimes, it's nice when just a few friends get together mid-week too, and so here we are in Simon's "studio", benefitting from the skill and experience of his father, Brian Waddington. It looks a bit cramped in there, but we were just huddled together to fit in the photo frame :-)

And you can drink beer in this club! :-)
