Pleasing to see Salford Art Club represented by several members work at this event. In it's tenth year, this exhibition for charity, has raised over a hundred thousand pounds and enabled the Bury Hospice to have extra beds and staff.
The paintings were chosen by Gerry Halpin MBE, the art director and his team and what an excellent job they have made of it. I was pleasantly surprised by the high quality of the work on show. The staff putting the exhibition up in such a short time must have worked very hard and the support from the public on the night was impressive.
Art club members represented were Lynn Kirkley, David Norris, Dorothy Pointon and myself. On the night, I was pleased to be presented with the Ken Bromley Award for my painting, Autumn Lightoaks Park, and look forward to buying more art materials with the voucher.
This is a worthwhile event for a good cause and one that members are welcome to contribute to in future.
