Artists share plea­sure of paint­ing

Costa Blanca News (North Edition) - - SOCIAL SCENE - By Jack Troughton

A colour­ful lucky bag of pic­tures pro­vides a di­verse range of sub­jects in the cur­rent ex­hi­bi­tion by artists of the Paint­ing for Plea­sure Art Club.

The painters meet ev­ery Mon­day in the So­cial Cen­tre, Rafol d’Al­mu­nia, near On­dara, and the show pro­vides mem­bers to go pub­lic and show off their tal­ents.

The Cen­tre d’Ex­posi­cions in Carrer d’Ho­pi­tal in the cen­tre of Pego is home to this year’s an­nual ex­hi­bi­tion and there is a fi­nal chance to see it to­day (Fri­day Novem­ber 9) be­tween 10.00 and

13.00 and 17.15 and 19.00.

A dozen artists have their work on dis­play and many pic­tures are for sale; en­trance is free and for any­one in the area, it is well worth pop­ping in to en­joy and ap­pre­ci­ate their work.

The ex­hi­bi­tion opened on Mon­day evening; sadly, Jan Calder­wood, who founded the group in 2008 and is one of its three art teach­ers, could not be present.

Phil Mansell (pic­tured) took up oil paint­ing two years ago and doc­u­ments the char­ac­ters seen in the bars of Birm­ing­ham’s pub­lic houses in the fifties – as a con­trast he also cap­tures the joy of Span­ish fiestas in his pic­tures.
