Newsletter -  December 2016

We normally send out a Newsletter in the Spring, but with this year’s exhibition taking place in October we were very pleased that so many of you accepted the change. Our concerns about the move to the autumn were unfounded and we thought we should let you know how the event went. We saw 100 people a day visiting the exhibition and there were many compliments from the public about the quality and range of the work exhibited.   We were also delighted that there were so many new exhibitors. This has helped to broaden the range of exhibits and delivered many new styles.  Thank you to the 80 exhibitors who contributed.

The level of participation was complemented by the sale of exhibits and artists cards. There were 39 exhibits sold which was over 12% of the work on show, representing 27 of the exhibitors - nearly 30% of you.  The value of work sold reached nearly £4000.  The card sales did just as well. Of the 783 cards displayed, 283 were sold. Brilliant.

You would have noticed some changes to the way the exhibits were displayed.   The more open style of hanging worked better, but we do acknowledge that we still have to make further improvements.  We will therefore try some alternative layouts next year.

With regard to next year, plans are already being made as 2017 will be the 40th year that Lingfield Art has been running. We want to make the event special as we have many people from the past to thank who both launched the event in 1977 and have contributed over the past 40 years. Sadly some are no longer with us but many are, so we will be inviting them to a Private View with a difference…….A Private View Party.

The dates for your 2017 diary are as follows:

  • Application documents will be available from Thursday 29th June on the website and sent to all those artists on our mailing list. If you have received this newsletter you are on our list.
  • The closing date for applications will be Thursday 21st September 2017
  • The date for Handing In exhibits will be Saturday 21st October 2017
  • The Private View Party for all our artists and guests will be on Sunday 22nd October 2017 between 4pm and 8pm.
  • The exhibition will be open from Monday 23rd to Sunday 29th October 2017

Please put the dates in your diary and look out for the arrival of your application form either by post or email next summer and remember, acceptance is on a first received, first accepted basis as space is limited, so don’t be late.

Thank you
