Wokingham Art Society Summer Exhibition

Click for larger image of Wokingham Art Society Annual Exhibition

Wokingham Art Society will hold their 64th Annual Summer Exhibition and Sale of paintings, ceramics, jewellery and cards.

This is a great opportunity to see, and buy, high quality art work from over 100 local artists.

"Buy and Take Home an Original Work of Art" has been the motto of the Society over the years. This is quite a unique feature, as visitors can buy and take home a chosen work of art which is then replaced straight away with another original piece. This way the exhibition is constantly showing a different display.

There will also be a "Young Artist" corner where children can create their own "masterpieces", thus leaving the parents in peace to have a wander around the exhibition.

Admission FREE. Car parking and refreshments available. Disabled access.

For details of this year's Annual Exhibition, please see www.wokinghamartsociety.org.uk/5_Exhibition/EXHIBITION.HTM.
