Art group members showcase their talents
TALENTED members of a local art group had the chance to showcase their abilities at an exhibition in Peterborough.
Students of Glyn’s Art for Life group displayed their work at their regular meeting place of Paston and Gunthorpe Community Centre, in Hallfields Lane, Gunthorpe, recently.
The Mayor of Peterborough Cllr Paula Thacker opened the event, which also included work by another Glyn’s Art for Life group run in Whittlesey.
Cllr Thacker praised the standard of the work, having bought four exhibits herself.
She said: “It was wonderful.”
The work on show included watercolours, acrylics, oils and pastels, but also photography.
Tutor Glyn Plumb declared the event a success and congratulated the artists for their achievements. She said: “It went very well. “I was very pleased and proud of them as well.”
She added: “It was very well attended. We sold more pictures then we normally do.”
The group meets on Mondays at the Paston and Gunthorpe Community Centre.
Anyone interested in joining the group should call Ms Plumb on 07941 024285.
