Wa­ter colours on show at free ex­hi­bi­tion

Southern Telegraph - - News - Emily Sharp

A myr­iad of colour and ta­lent will be on dis­play this week­end at a new art ex­hi­bi­tion.

The Rock­ing­ham Wa­ter Colour So­ci­ety will host one of two free an­nual dis­plays at the Gary Hol­land Cen­tre from June 3 to June 5.

Pres­i­dent Celia Al­lan said it would be a mixed-me­dia ex­hi­bi­tion with more than 40 en­tries to fill the walls of the cen­tre, both down­stairs and up.

“It’s a chance for our artists to show their work and we al­ways en­cour­age even our new­est mem­bers to put some­thing in,” she said.

“All art­work will be for sale with very rea­son­able prices and can make great gifts for birth­days and Christ­mas.”

The so­ci­ety also cel­e­brated the 80th birth­day of one of its most faith­ful mem­bers, Bob Carter, last week.

“Bob has been at the fore­front of art in Rock­ing­ham for many years,” Ms Al­lan said.

“He is in­cred­i­ble, al­ways help­ing oth­ers out with their art­work and is the most gen­er­ous man I’ve ever come across.”

The RWC meets ev­ery Fri­day, with new mem­bers given a men­tor and a wealth of in­for­ma­tion and sup­port when they join.
