A few members of the Fleet Art Society took part in the Fleet Art Festival this weekend 26th and 27th October, with an exhibition of their work.
A big thank you to those who took part and particularly the stewards who devoted their time to man the display. Three paintings were sold along with a few cards but there was a lot of interest by the general public. It was a little unfortunate that, not only was it the last few days of the children’s half term break with a lot of families away, but was also on the same weekend as two other art exhibitions in the near vicinity, one in Odiham and one in Crowthorne. However, the excellent presentation was a great success and helped to raise the profile of Fleet Art Society.
We also had a lot of folios from the late Geoffrey Ainley and these sold very well giving us a total of £151 which, I am sure, the Phylis Tuckwell charity will be pleased to receive.
