The Newark Art Club’s first spring exhibition since the covid pandemic will open this week.
Held at Newark Parish Church, the exhibit will feature 125 paintings created by club members.
Paintings vary in style and medium.
Exhibition organizer John Geeson said: “There’s everything from landscapes to portraits to wildlife — you name it, there’s everything you can imagine.
“It’s amazing when you see them at the club painting, but when it comes to the exhibition, you see everything.”
The club usually holds the Spring Exhibition every year, but has been unable to do so since 2019.
John said: “We hope this year we can do spring and autumn shows at the church.
“We started last July with the club, but it was intermittent. It’s only this year now that everything is back to normal.
“There are a lot of new works in this exhibition. It’s a good buzz.
The club’s latest spring display drew nearly 700 visitors over the week, and he hopes the bank holiday weekend will bring visitors to the town and church to view the display.
All of the paintings on display will be for sale and visitors will be able to vote for their favorite – with the winner’s name engraved on a mug they will keep for the year.
The exhibition will run from Friday to Friday, May 6, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily.
