New Buckenham Art Exhibition
I think it would be fair to say that the New Buckenham Exhibition over the twenty years has built up quite a reputation for being a quality show. It has always been held over the Easter Weekend and this year is no exception. The Opening Night is Friday 14th April starting at 7.30 p.m. and finishing at 10 p.m. admission is £4.00 and this includes your glass of wine and nibbles . It is always a special night where lots of people gather as soon as the doors are open to find their very special picture. Many are sold on this evening and often to people who have bought a picture at the exhibition before. However if you prefer a more calm leisurely viewing then the Saturday, Sunday, or Monday are the days to go and enjoy this cultural event. The exhibition is open on Saturday 15th Sunday 16th and Monday 17th April from 11.a.m to 4.30 p.m. Admission is £1.50
The exhibition varies from year to year as new Artists exhibit. However there are some artists that have been exhibiting with us since it opened twenty years ago. The quality is always good and it seems to get better each year. There is an interesting mix of styles and mediums. Water colours and oils are probably the most popular and then you find some incredible drawings, stitch work and always an individual view point in photography. I think it is fair to say there is something for everyone. Remember the dates and bring your family and friends and maybe you find a painting to buy.
