Art Exhibition a Great Success

This year’s art exhibition went off very well. Pictures were contributed by 49 artists and of the 279 on show, 71 were sold. The exhibition made a profit of £556 pounds. Most years (except when the Society has unexpected large expenses) the profits are donated to a deserving local charity.

The Art Section, who put in so much work to make the exhibition a success, can be satisfied that their efforts are benefiting a very good cause.

The picture shows the Town Mayor, Councillor David Gooch, talking to members invited to the preview evening after he had formally opened the exhibition.

Time is running out

September is here which means that you will need to get a move on if you have not yet made your 2015 visit to the Fishermen’s Heritage Centre and the Shell Gallery. As always there have been some wonderful days on the North Norfolk coast but it would be fair to add that it has not been the most glorious of summers so far, the last Bank Holiday weekend being a particular disappointment. September can offer beautiful weather, so take advantage if you can and turn up before the last Sunday of the month (27th).

We will then be closed until the school half-term holiday (24th October to 1st November), but opening then will be more likely to be weather dependent, because of our exposed position on the sea front.
