This year for the first time Waterside Art Group held its summer exhibition during the week of Hampshire Open Studios. The exhibition was an outstanding success. Visitor numbers doubled compared to previous years. It was encouraging for the artists that the sales of paintings also increased. Perhaps the greatest pleasure though was from hearing all the positive comments regarding the quality and the variety of the art displayed. The WAG calendar for 2019 proved very popular.
The group is pleased to announce that ‘Wise Old Owl’ by Derek Huntley was the most popular painting. ‘Kingfisher’ by Derek Huntley and ‘Blue Jug and Cheeseboard’ by Jenny Belton came joint second. Congratulations to these members but also to all members for bringing together such an impressive show.
