2005 Exhibitions

The year started with a secondary exhibition at the Surrey Heath Museum

Once again the Annual Exhibition was held in High Cross Church, Knoll Road, Camberley. The Private View on Tuesday 6 September was due to be opened by the Mayor of Surrey Heath, Mr Steward Stevenson but, unfortunately, he was called away on official business. Our Chairman, Michael Whiteley, opened it in his place. We were pleased to be able to welcome the Mayor briefly the following day - he appeared suitably impressed by the quality of the work on display.

The Exhibition was open to the public from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm, 7 to 10 September 2005.

As usual, members had been invited to exhibit drawings, paintings, pottery and, a new innovation, original greetings cards. In addition there was a special display of some of the paintings of our late President, James Winterbottom, "Wint" and of two other members who, sadly, had recently died (Sam Jobbins and Peggy Workman).

Several prizes had been sponsored, generally either to encourage particular types of work or in memory of past members.

See the bottom of this page for earlier exhibitions.

About 250 paintings were on display, of which 38 were sold, including 10 unframed "portfolio items". The potters sold 18 pieces. Original greetings cards (of which 107 were sold) were a new innovation which may be repeated in the future .

Secondary Exhibition at Camberley Museum
8 Feb 2005 to 5 March 2005

This secondary exhibition had a Surrey Heath "Scene Locally" theme. Members were invited to submit one painting and/or some items of pottery.

An important departure from our normal exhibition, apart from the difference of length (nearly 4 weeks instead of a few days) was that members had the opportunity to let visitors see them at work.

The 45 exhibitors sold five paintings and 13 pieces of pottery, a very creditable result.
