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.
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.
addition to paintings for sale, there will be craft stalls and homemade
refreshments and a blind auction with bids on selected paintings.
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.
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.
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!
provides volunteer doctors and paramedics at the scene of accidents to
help with those suffering serious injury or acute medical illness.
