A really good turn out for Salford Art Club's exhibition. It was good to see so many local people at the show. It was also nice to meet some of my Facebook friends and put faces to the people I talk to on the site.
I have been a member of the art club since the late 70's although I did have a long break because of work commitments until rejoining three years ago.
It is fascinating to see how the membership has changed with only a couple of the past members from the 80's still attending the meetings. There is still a great variety of talented artists in the club and they have provided a fascinating exhibition.
This year the Ceremonial Mayor of Salford, Karen Garrido, opened the exhibition and Charles Hickson, a professional artist whom I had exhibited with in the past, selected the work. Geoffrey Key a well known artist and president of the club was there to offer his support.
I am exhibiting one of my landscapes and one of my digital drawings, so a complete contrast in styles.
After a busy preview it will be good to go back and view the exhibition in a peaceful environment.
Once again thank to all those who attended and if you fancy a good day out, the exhibition is on for two months.
