Talented Auditions


On the left the Painting for Pleasure Group and on the right Linda Godspink with some of her work.

A colourful display is assured when the Hethersett Painting for Pleasure group mounts an exhibition of its work in Hethersett Village Hall on August 19th from 10.30 a.m until 4 p.m. 

It will be the fourth exhibition for the group which was founded in 2006 and meets in the village hall on Wednesday mornings. Artists work in a mixture of mediums from watercolour and acrylics to oils and pastels under the guidance of Hethersett artist Linda Goldspink. 

In addition to paintings for sale, there will be craft stalls and homemade refreshments and a blind auction with bids on selected paintings. 

“The blind auction works will be displayed on the stage and will be separate from the main exhibition. Some will be unframed which keeps the artists’ costs down and gives the buyer the chance to own an original work at a lower price. A few of these paintings will have a reserve, but most could sell for just a few pounds. This gives our newer artists a chance to sell their first paintings,” Linda Goldspink said.

Profits from refreshments, some of the paintings and other attractions will go to the Norfolk Accident Rescue Service (NARS), a charity with which Hethersett GP Tony Press is closely connected with. 

Linda also has a close connection with NARS, having taken photographs for publicity leaflets and posters, one of which featured husband Malcolm being cut from a car! 

NARS provides volunteer doctors and paramedics at the scene of accidents to help with those suffering serious injury or acute medical illness.
