Art Update

EventsThe 23rd annual Teddington Artists exhibition will be taking place on the weekend of the 12-13th of May 2012 (10am-6pm) in the NPL atrium.

On show and for sale in this elegant and spacious venue will be a variety of paintings, original prints, botanical subjects, jewellery, ceramics, sculpture as well as cards and prints from local talented artists.

Ten regular members of this professional group will this year be joined by four invited guest artists. All fourteen exhibit widely elsewhere, often in national and international exhibitions. Each artist will show work marked by distinctive personal vision. All items will be for sale and all the artists will be in attendance and pleased to discuss their work with visitors.

Admission will be on the basis of donation, with a suggested amount of £3 per person or family group. A proportion of the proceeds will be donated to charity. There will this year be two local beneficiaries: Friends of Teddington Memorial Hospital and Shooting Star CHASE.

The spring exhibition at The Architects Gallery is “Tread Softly” and features paintings, drawings and prints by eight artists from Britain, Spain, Russia and Estonia.

At Mackenzie Gallery, as always, there is a wide variety of works for sale including a charming print of Teddington town in art form by Lisa Tolley and pretty embroidered works by Priscilla Jones.

Also don’t forget that the Richmond and Twickenham Photographic Society Annual Exhibition at the Landmark Arts Centre starts this Wednesday 4th April and as well as the usual mixture of inspired photography, will also include rare photos of the Queen taken by Joan Williams.
