FORDINGBRIDGE Art Club is holding its Summer Exhibition at the town Hall this month.

The exhibition which starts next Saturday (August 18) runs until Monday, August 27.

A spokesman for the group said: “This year we are delighted to welcome local Artist Jake Winkle to judge the entries but his input will not end there. Jake has very kindly agreed to demonstrate his vibrant watercolour paint technique to the audience during the private show.

“This is a fantastic opportunity to see how a professional painter makes the most of his palette, and to gain some tips for your own work.

“We are also very fortunate that Jake will be donating his painting to our club so this will be framed and put on display throughout the exhibition, during which time sealed auction bids can be made to purchase the picture.”

A preview event will take place on Friday, August 17 from 6pm.

Jake Winkle will be doing a demonstration ath the preview event.

Fordingbridge Art Club is always ready to welcome new members and new talent. Come along and see the results of the group’s recent Club Holiday to The St. Ives School of Painting in Cornwall.
