EXHIBITIONS

Pirbright Art Club now holds three exhibitions each year. Our main "Annual Exhibition", takes place in early December, and our Summer outdoor "Railings Exhibition" is at the end of July. We also exhibit at the annual Pirbright Scarecrow Festival each Summer.

ANNUAL EXHIBITION (2016 Exhibition December 3rd and 4th)

Our 2016 Annual Exhibition took place over the weekend of 3rd / 4th of December. The exhibition was very successful, with overall sales being up from previous years, despite the average catalogue price also going up. Unframed folios, including unframed oils and acrylics, which were not in the catalogue also did well. Our craft fair was well received and our own stall selling "good-as-new" (donated and unwanted) art material contributed to a  financially successful exhibition. Visitors numbers were healthy and there was evidence that our Facebook Ad, publicising the event, attracted more people. Further details, including an analysis of the pictures on display as well as sales statistics, can be found here.

PIRBRIGHT SCARECROW FESTIVAL

      Our first exhibition of the year was the Pirbright Scarecrow Festival held on the Pirbright Village green on Saturday 18th June, 2016. Sales were made of framed and unframed mounted works. 10% of all sales went to the Pirbright Church Fund. A group of our artists worked "en plein air" on the village green, around the pond. Some of the paintings completed may feature in the Railings exhibition (see below).

RAILINGS EXHIBITION

The "Railings Exhibition", our annual Summer outdoor exhibition and sale of work, took place on Saturday 30th July this year. Many pictures on display had a "horticultural" or "floral" theme.
