Group hosts art exhibition this weekend

AN ART group will be holding an exhibition in the borough this weekend.

Earlier this summer the North of England Art Club ran a show at Park View shopping centre in Whitley Bay, and have decided to hold a new exhibition from tomorrow (Friday) to Sunday.

Club chairman Wendy Ranage said: “More than 2,000 people visited us during our two week run in June, and we are hoping that the public has developed a taste for the members’ work, and that we can beat the previous record for visitors and sales.

“The success has encouraged even more artists to exhibit at Art in the Park this Christmas, offering even more choice for buers.”

The all new show features works not seen before, and work will be available to buy.

The exhibition runs from Friday, December 16, to Sunday, December 18, and is open to the public from 10am to 4pm.

Admission is free.
