For our first Open Day in two years we didn’t know whether to expect a handful of visitors or more. On a bitterly cold and wet day at least 60 visitors came along to admire and buy the paintings. Everyone welcomed the guests and talked about art over the four hours. Your enthusiasm shone through and it was a fabulous day, well done to one and all!
Many visitors signed our guest book and here are some of the comments…
Amazing variety of techniques. Lovely work once again and great to see everyone.
Very inspiring and bought some lovely Christmas presents. Fabulous.
Lovely to see everyone again and the beautiful work as always.
Truly impressed – some cracking work. Lovely to see everyone, well done.
Very good. Very lovely artwork, thank you.
Thank you to everyone who helped with the hanging on Friday evening and on the Saturday made many cups of tea and coffee and kept washing up and drying all the crockery. We couldn’t have this Open Day without all of your help.
There were 74 framed paintings on the walls and 3 browsers of mounted artwork. Five framed paintings and seven mounted pictures were sold, along with one probable commission and two membership enquiries. A great result in only four hours.
Eighteen members attended the day and some managed to paint whilst others didn’t get to open their paintboxes as the day was so busy! One member was visited by her delightful grandchildren and they stayed and created some paintings of their own. Possible M&C members for the future?
