We are pretty sure that the 2023 arts festival has been a success in terms of numbers of visitors and we are now starting to plan for the 2024 festival taking account of some valuable lessons that we have learned from this year’s festival.
One element of this year’s festival that was a resounding success was Royston Arts Society’s Annual Autumn Exhibition in Royston Town Hall. The exhibition included a total of 330 paintings and 515 greeting cards created by 65 artists. Sales amounted to almost £4000 and two thirds of the exhibiting artists sold something over the weekend making the event the most successful exhibition in a decade.
The exhibition was very well received by the visitors and the favourite picture award was won by Tina Bone for her painting entitled “Blue and Gold Macaws and Swamp Hibiscus” (see picture).
Members of Royston Arts Society can enter paintings into both the Autumn exhibition and the Online Members’ exhibition plus the ongoing exhibition in Royston Library.
They can also attend painting sessions twice per month and an art demonstration given by a professional artist most months.
At the moment, new members can join RAS for half price; £12.00 for adults and £7.00. This membership will run until 31st March 2024 giving new members ample time to sample the art demonstrations and painting sessions; also to exhibit some work in Royston Library.
