Exhibitions and Other News
We have currently in the early months of 2019 an exhibition of about thirty paintings for sale in the inner gallery of Victoria Hall in Oakham High Street, which is generally open to the public on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays approx. 09.30 to 4.30. Other artists also exhibit in this space. An information notice is posted up near our Oakham Art Group paintings should anyone wish to make a purchase, and prices are mostly well below £100. Or you can use the CONTACT US button above.
During our 2018 Summer Exhibition held in the Victoria Hall,12 works were sold and exhibition publicity resulted in several new members joining.
Our 2017 Summer Exhibition was held at Victoria Hall in July when 8 paintings sold.
We are exhibiting again in Stamford Arts Centre for about two weeks in August/September 2019 and plan to run an exhibition in Oakham’s Victoria Hall for most of this year.
Occasionally we have local artists run demonstration sessions, and last November we engaged Peter Barker RSMA of Uppingham to paint in oils a winter frosty scene of a bend on the River Welland with rural fields, trees and telegraph poles in the misty background. His expertise with almost photographic detail in only about 90 minutes was very well demonstrated, as was his remarkable skill at filling in foliage and realistic detail only using a small part of the bristles of a one inch decorator’s domestic paint brush.
