On July 3rd we had John Harrison to give a Pen and wash workshop. We had a full house and enjoyed his visit. Many of us learnt tips and had fun with John's carefree teaching methods.

The Morpeth Northumbrian Gathering on April 6 to 8 has been another opportunity for the Morpeth Art Group to share our work with the public. It was very well received! Here are some pictures of the weekend.

March 6th was a great day. We had Joe Hush again! This time he worked on a seascape. He made it look so easy! we all were fascinated as he moved through the sketch stroke by stroke and made such a beautiful scene emerge. Thank you again to Joe for his generosity as he donated the finished work for our next exhibition raffle! Here are some photos of the day.

Congratulations to all Morpeth Art Group members on a very successful exhibition this past 28th and 29th of July!! We had great success overall with a very health attendance from family, friends and public in general which turned out in picture sales and interest. Group member and Mayor of Morpeth, Nic Best, officially open the exhibition. We were also very pleased to see Michael Ewart amongst our guests on Friday evening. He contributed with his oil painting as the first prize for the raffle. Thank you again to Michael for his generosity.

Thanks are given to Ted Tallantyre, who came to help in the setup of the pictures. He did a great job in presenting our work at its best. Thanks again!

This year, we had people voting for the picture of their choice which made them truly look at each painting and make a choice. It must be said, it was very difficult to choose one given the quality and variety of the pictures exhibited. Finally, it was Julia Chandlers, Water Edge, that received the prize! Congratulations to Julia!
