POP-UP EXHIBITION AT PIRBRIGHT CHURCH
We will be joining a pop-up art exhibition at St Michael & All Angels Church, Pirbright on Saturday 11th and Sunday 12th June. The art display and sale is to coincide with the Pirbright Garden Walks and it takes place from 11 - 5pm on the Saturday and 12 - 5pm (tbc) on Sunday. This is an opportunity for members to show/sell their paintings (perhaps some from the December Exhibition) to a different audience and - as there is no Pirbright Village Fete this year - it is another event for Pirbright Art Club to take part in.
Please register your interest or willingness to enter your painting/s by emailing Maggie Read.

PIRBRIGHT VILLAGE SEA FAIR - SEPTEMBER 2021
Pirbright Art Club took part in the Village Fair held on Saturday September 4th on Pirbright village green. The Fair's theme was "All at Sea" and the Club had several paintings (40 to 50), folios, prints and cards on this (and other) themes for sale. About two-thirds of the paintings were on the Sea theme. The Fair was highly successful and the Art Club certainly contributed to the success with many sales made of framed and unframed paintings as well as prints and cards. The two photos above are just two of the many paintings we sold. We also had an entry (an "artist mermaid" surrounded by several paintings contributed by Club members) in the Church as part of the Village Trail and which won the prize for the most original interpretation of the theme. Pictures from the day are shown below.

ANNUAL EXHIBITION 2020
Our Virtual "Annual Exhibition" was held from December 1st, 2020 until January 4th, 2021 in the form of a slideshow and gallery. This proved very successful and a number of sales were made.
Our main exhibition took place on Saturday November 30th and Sunday December 1st at Lord Pirbright's Hall, Pirbright. The event featured a "Black Friday" sale of paintings in the Club Room, as well as our main exhibition in the main Hall. The event was very well attended and many paintings, prints and cards were sold.
RAILINGS EXHIBITION (June 15th 2019, in conjunction with Pirbright Village Dragon Fair)
In 2019 our Summer exhibition was held outside the Lord Pirbright's Hall, in conjunction with Pirbright Village Dragon Fair. The weather was "changeable" with rain showers and sunny periods meaning that we had to cover and uncover our paintings on a frequent basis. Nevertheless it was a very successful day for the Club.
Maggie Read described the "Railings" day as follows .... "We had an amazing display of dragon paintings on the outside of the railings and some very impressive paintings of other subjects hung on the inner railings. We had many visitors and sold five framed paintings altogether - not a bad result for a village fair! Congratulations to Lynn Willis, who sold two of the five - one being her lovely dragon painting! Well done, too, to Steve Wells, whose oil painting of the White Hart, Pirbright, sold to a buyer who has also commissioned another painting from him. Nina Klein sold one of her charming little paintings - congrats to her - and I sold my Lily Pond painting, so was pleased about that!". Further pictures from the exhibition are shown below
Member Teri Berry, a textile artist, kindly entered her wonderful dragon masks into the Dragon Trail, to represent our club. As shown in the below photos, they were on display at the Church during the Dragon Fair day.
