This week I joined the Newquay Society of Artists!
I heard about the Newquay Society of Artists after noticing various exhibitions popping up over the summer. After discovering that they have a full line-up of demonstrations and exhibitions planned for 2018-2019 I was keen to join.
The Newquay Society of Artists was founded in 1950 and their summer exhibitions were popular by visitors. Many well-know local artists started their careers as members of the society. Now their typical exhibition calendar now includes Padstow, Trerice, Trenance Cottages (by the boating lake) and during the September Fish Festival at Newquay Harbour.
For the opening night we all signed up for the year and had a chance to meet fellow artists. We also brought a painting along for self-appraisal. With a vote for the best in show for the opening night I was extremely pleased to have been voted the winner. It was a pleasure to talk to many people afterwards as they asked me about my style and the materials that I used.
