Trophy Exhibition 2017, Markeaton Park
With this year’s successful and enjoyable exhibition still in mind, the Committee will be trying to book the same venue for next year's exhibition,2018.
Many Club members gave a great deal of their time to supervising the exhibition, a core of members being in the hall virtually full time. It is a pleasure to thank them on behalf of all Club members. This year we had 110 hung paintings, over 40 pictures in the browsers and a large number of high quality greetings cards on sale. Several visitors mentioned that there was an overall high standard of work on show. Congratulations to all exhibitors.
