Sutton Art Group gave a good account of themselves at the Retford Art Festival last weekend, with the 33 paintings exhibited over the 3 day period drawing many admiring comments. In addition to our wonderful exhibition of paintings, our member, David Mowthorpe, gave a 45 minute illustrated presentation Art in the Balkans which was much acclaimed!!
The Bank Holiday weekend did, however, pose problems. With so many members of the Group on holiday, manning the exhibition was left to a small number of people – thanks to all who gave their time. Let us hope that there are changes for next year’s festival such as a move away from the bank Holiday and perhaps just 2 days rather than 3.
