Spalding Arts & Crafts Society Exhibitions
The Society holds an annual exhibition each year at the Geest Gallery in Ayscoughfee Hall, Spalding. All members can exhibit. See below for details of our 2019 exhibition.
We may also have other exhibitions at other venues during the year.
Our annual exhibition will be held at the Geest Gallery, Ayscoughfee Hall, Churchgate, Spalding PE11 2RA, 2nd to 30th May 2019.
There will be a "Meet the Artist" day on Saturday 11th May, when some of our members will be painting in the gallery.
We also have an online gallery of members' paintings. Any member wishing to have a page in the gallery should send a good photo of one of their paintings plus the title and medium, and a few details about themselves to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Members can also have details of their own exhibitions included on this page. Email Katie@saacs.org.uk with your details
A few pointers on preparing your paintings for exhibition . . . .
When exhibiting paintings, the way they are presented is important, so please make sure it is framed to a high standard. When busy it is easy to make a mistake, such as leaving off the fixings or card on the back. For paintings behind glass, use clean mounts, and seal with good quality tape on the back. Also dust over the glass andcheck the tape if the work has been hanging elsewhere. Use double mounts for pastels, and remember to paint edges on a box canvas. Work is devalued if not presented properly, so a little attention to detail can result in a sale - hopefully!
