Annual Exhibition, 2007

Between an earlier Mini Exhibition and a personal one by Jean Woolley of her late husband's work, the 2007 Annual Exhibition was held on Friday 14th and Saturday15th September
in High Cross Church, Knoll Road, Camberley.

Members were invited to exhibit original drawings and paintings. With a few exceptions all these items were for sale.
It was open to the public from 9:30 am to 5 pm each day and the Evening Reception on the Friday was opened by our local MP, Michael Gove. He spoke very eloquently, complementing the artists on their achievements and the high standard of work. The evening was well supported, guests including the current Mayor, Councillor Pat Pearce.

As well as the professionally-judged Winsland Award and the Public's choice Jill Seward Trophy for which all catalogued paintings are entered, members are sometimes given the opportunity to submitt paintings with a particular theme. For 2007 this was "Contrasts" , the committee hoping that it would stimulate entrants to consider all types of artistic contrast: colour, tone, shape, concept, message etc.

Previous competition themes have included:
"A Riot of Colour", "Celebration", "Reflections" and "Dreams"
The 3 competition winners in 2007 were:
Springfield Road

Interiors 1908 & 1968
The Winsland Award
Lisa Clifford,
"Springfield Road"
Jill Seward Trophy (public's choice)
Maureen Hayward,
"St Mark's Square Venice"
Theme: "Contrasts"
Doreen Piercey
"Interiors 1908 & 1968"
(acrylic), from 18 entries

205 framed paintings were in the catalogue and there were also uncataloged portfolio items. Of these about 20 and 8, respectively, were sold.

Additionally, five of the late Gerald Woolley's pictures were on display (none of them sold but there was a great deal of interest and discussion). His widow still has a number of his pictures for sale, very reasonably priced for the quality. Visit her Nov 2007 exhibition .

As well as framed and mounted pictures, original greetings cards were popular and there was a satisfying interest by those attending the exhibition in joining the Society.
