Annual Exhibition 2010

Surrey Heath Show 2010 Competition winners

Sandi Toksvig, writer and broadcaster, officially opened the
FCSA 2010 Annual Exhibition in High Cross Church, Knoll Road, Camberley,
at a ticket-only evening reception on Thursday 15th July.

Here is an illustrated recording of the opening ceremony (75MB).
Note. If your computer needs your permission to run this .exe file you can safely opt to give it.

The exhibition was open to the public from 9:30 to 5:00, Friday 16th and Saturday 17th July.

This was another excellent opportunity for people to find out about the benefits of membership, to see what FCSA members do and to enjoy viewing and buying original works of art at reasonable prices.
Private view
This evening had the best attendance ever, due to the well advertised official opening performed by Sandi Toksvig who was in tremendous form and gave a thoroughly researched and very witty and funny speech. It will be difficult to top this coup for next year's opening of what will be our fiftieth anniversary exhibition.

The superb new stands designed by Terry Ralph made it one of the best looking of our exhibitions, too.

We showed 214 pictures and 41 portfolios
and sold13 Pictures, 6 Portfolios and 50 cards

The winning raffle ticket was No. 333. If you had that ticket speak to a member of the committee or contact Tom Moss to claim your prize of the Paul Howard painting of Porlock
