Permanent exhibition

We also now are delighted to have a permanent exhibition in St. Mary’s Church. Paintings in the permanent exhibition may be for sale, and Jo from The Battlefield 1403 Café in St. Mary’s has kindly offered to take payments for the Society using our Bank Card Machine, so if you would like to buy one of the paintings you see at the exhibition, please head to the cafe and ask for Jo.

Judith Moy, Pru Mac and Nicky Lokier were the first three members to exhibit and get the project off the ground (our artists take turns to exhibit their work on a monthly basis so the exhibition is refreshed regularly). The photograph below shows the paintings on display by these members.

Annual exhibitions

The Society presents two annual exhibitions of members’ work, when both framed and unframed art works are for sale to the public. The Summer Exhibition takes place at St Mary’s Church, Shrewsbury —world famous for its stained glass— in June and July and the Autumn Exhibition is held at The Bear Steps, Shrewsbury — an historic timber-framed gallery.

If you’d like to be added to the guest list for previews of future exhibitions, please contact us as we will be delighted to hear from you. We look forward to welcoming you to our next exhibition.
