Walton Group of Artists Annual Exhibition November 2018 – Inspiring Our Community in Art

The Annual Exhibition by Walton Group of Artists (WGA) this year will be on the weekend of 17 to 18 November. Held in the Village Hall, Walton near Wetherby, the event is open to visitors between 10am and 4pm. WGA will be raising money for the further development of Walton Village Hall’s Playground.

The exhibition, which is free to visit, exclusively showcases the work of the 22 professional and amateur members of the Group which meets each week to develop, inspire and encourage the artist within. On show will be a vast range of artwork, most available to buy on the day, and of a consistently high standard.

This year the team behind WGA are promoting the theme ‘Inspiring Our Community in Art’, and the event will include a display of work from local school children from Lady Elizabeth Hastings School in Thorp Arch.

Walton Group of Artists meets each week and are a friendly group which supports each other’s work and artistic development. With an aim to inspire, encourage and enjoy creating art the focus of this year’s Exhibition is ‘Inspiring Our Community in Art’.  There will be an opportunity to chat to members and to sign up for information on the Group’s open, sharing and welcoming events such as their regular evening demonstrations and day-long, hands-on workshops all held at the Village Hall.

Visitors also will be able to vote for the ‘Best in Show’ exhibit for 2018, last year won by WGA member, Jan Bulley, for her picture titled ‘Flood Water Trees’.
