Boothstown Community Centre Show , 6 Dec 2014, A Great Success!

LCAG staged its second annual show at Boothstown Community Centre on 6 December 2014. Just like last year the show was a great success with 18 paintings sold. 

Judging from the numbers attending not all the public were at the shops that day. We wish to thank everyone who attended and showed interest in our members' work.

It was a pleasure to see so many people there to view a large range of types of paintings and drawings. We look forward to seeing you all soon. An itinerary will be announced for 2015 as soon as it is finalised.

The photos below were taken during a lull in visits.

Calling All Artists

If you are in search of art materials we have now provided 2 new pages of links for you. The first page contains links to companies selling materials and the second to manufacturers of Artists' supplies. There is a wealth of information available about how the items are made and how the raw materials are sourced. 

Most of us use pens, pencils, brushes etc without any real idea of how they are made. Many of the sites contain valuable tips on how to use their products to your best advantage.

A must for any serious artist and beginner alike.

While browsing we have posted "Jersey Castle", a watercolour by S. Downham, one of our club members.

Holiday Memories

Paintings can be done based on a photo, a post card or better still from  holiday memories. They are a great way to remember the great places we get to on holiday and everyone, including family and loved ones can enjoy them at the same time. They also make great souvenir presents.

This is "Chateau de Brittage, France", acrylic by B. Gill.

Do You Recognise This View?

Our members work in a range of media, i.e.watercolour, acrylic, oil, pencil and pastel to name but a few. They draw and paint a wide range of subjects. Landscapes, animal portraits and flowers are the most popular subjects but not by any means all that we do.

The work I have chosen to publish tonight is "Plank Lane Bridge & Brittania Hotel 2009", acrylic by B. Gill. It is a local view that is no doubt very familiar to many of our readers. Some people in our club have the option of whether to sell their work  and that is the case here.- details below.




 (30" x 20", £130. Also 18" x 16" Prints £20.00..All prices exc P & P)

If you are interested in buying this or any other work that is for sale, by club members, please phone 07974543123)
