Preview to a great show
The largest number of submissions ever
and a lively crowd of members and guests crammed the Public Hall for the Preview Evening of this year’s
BSAC Annual Exhibition.
John Washington our joint Chairman, welcomed everyone to the preview, thanked the new Club Committee and specifically Paul Doughty and the helpers who organised the exhibition – his first for the Club.
Paul then introduced the panel of judges who critiqued some of the work and awarded prizes to the winners of each category
Throughout the evening, raffle tickets were sold for the prizes of 'Your Portrait Painted" and an original landscape painting by Wendy Markham. Money raised will go towards this year’s two nominated charities, Budleigh Hospicecare and Exmouth Open Doors.
So - the high standard of work, the wide variety of subject matter and attractive displays auger well for the next ten days and the show should be a successful destination for residents and visitors to Budleigh alike.
Look out for more photos and reports on this website as the show progresses through the week.
And do come and visit - lots to see, painting demos, kids' giant colouring poster, coffee, teas, cakes - and free entry to all.
