Opening 27 November 2021 and running through to 20 March 2022, the Salford Art Club will be exhibiting the best of their recent work.
The exhibition places no restrictions on subject matter or medium, allowing the artists free rein to create, meaning that the pieces exhibited will range from portraits, landscapes, still life and abstract.
With skill levels starting at the beginner level right through to extremely accomplished artists, this is your chance to celebrate the very best of what Salford has to offer. Original artworks will be available to purchase with proceeds helping support both local artists and the Salford Museum and Art Gallery.
Each member is able to submit four pieces for the exhibition and the final selection is made by guest judges. This year the judges are Salford based artist Geoffrey Key, one of the UK’s most important contemporary artists, and also President of Salford Art Club, and Ceri Horrocks, Head of Salford Museum and Art Gallery.
There are awards for best figure, still life and landscape. New for this exhibition is a prize for best mixed media piece in memory of previous member Pam Kirk. Visitors will be able to vote for their favourite work which will receive the award at the next exhibition.
Discussing the return of the exhibition, Amy Brunn, Exhibitions Manager at Salford Museum and Art Gallery commented;
“We are delighted to welcome back Salford Art Club to exhibit with us again and are excited to see their new work. Always a popular exhibition with our visitors, it showcases the talent and creativity Salford has to offer.”
Don’t miss your chance to support your local artists, come and visit the Salford Art Club exhibition at the Salford Museum and Art Gallery.
Philip Westcott, Chair of Salford Art Club also noted;
“Salford Art Club are pleased to be meeting again at the gallery after over 18 months absence and are thrilled about the exhibition. It’s a good chance for members to meet and discuss what they’ve been doing over lockdown and we are all looking forward to the wide range of activities organised for members in the future.”
The Salford Art Club meet at Salford Museum and Art Gallery every Saturday at 1pm to 3pm. Club meets include demonstrations, still life, life models, portraits and talks.
