Charnwood Exposed Art Exhibition

Saturday the 29th November was our very successful opening day of our new art exhibition at Charnwood Museum in Loughborough.

The Mayor of Charnwood was invited to attend the exhibition, which consisted of over 50 original paintings and artworks.

The theme Charnwood Exposed was set out to encapsulate what is made up of the borough’s rich landscape, industry and people. The pictures on display show a variety of styles and mediums from pastel portraits, watercolour landscapes, acrylic, and oil paintings.

Message from our Chairman Peter:

Your display of works look great, you all need a pat on the back for all the effort involved. As far as I could see it was all new work. This is the great advantage of working to a title, but it does means we have to work that little bit harder.Thanks all those who contributed and those who attended the opening. I must admit that at 12:30 I was feeling like I’d have to show the mayor around on my own, then all of a sudden a crowd appeared!!
