Our Exhibition year started at the Surrey Heath Show on Saturday 18 May 2019.
It gives us good publicity and sometimes some paintings are sold.
This year, for the first time, we became involved and took part in Camfest,
which ran from 28th-30th June. The event was open 10am - 5pm each day.
Our stand was in the Main Square between Primark and Patisserie Valerie.
Volunteers helped each day from 10-1 or 2--5 . We see this as a great opportunity to promote the FCSA and its Exhibitions. We can get our message across about who we are to a lot more people and be involved with the community of Camberley and surrounding areas.
|58th Annual Exhibition
High Cross Church, Knoll Road, Camberley
There was a ticket-only evening reception on Thursday 18th July 2019
at which the exhibition was officially opened by
Councillior Robin Perry, Mayor of Surrey Heath Borough Council.
This year there was a raffle in aid of "The Brush with Art Group" at Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice in Farnham.
Our President, Graham Scandrett offered his painting of the Doges Palace in Venice as the prize which was won by Mr. Charles Barbor, who is currently President of Camberley Rotary Club.
The raffle raised £235.82 for the charity.
The Mayor announced the winners of the Themed Competition, which was "Our Environment",
the Winsland Award for best watercolour/mixed media painting,
in memory of Bill Winsland, the first Chairman of FCSA,
and the Committee Prize donated by Lesey Kilner for best pastel.
The exhibition, with 188 paintings, was open to the public
from 9:30 to 5:00, Friday 19th and Saturday 20th July 2019.
As always, this was an excellent opportunity for people
to find out about the benefits of membership, to see what FCSA members do
and to enjoy viewing and, we hope, buying original works of art at reasonable prices.
