The 90th Anniversary art exhibition and Book launch with selected works from the Permanent Collection was held at the Library Galleries, Central Library, Tolhouse Street, Gt. Yarmouth. NR30 2SH in November 2017
There was a friendly atmosphere in the galleries and the Society enjoyed meeting the public at this annual event. The exhibition was very well supported by the Patrons and the general public.
A hardback book on the history of the Society containing 128 pages and over 100 colour prints was on sale at the exhibition. The cost of the book is £20 and can be ordered through this web site.
The exhibition was an opportunity for the Society to show its work to the public and for the public to see the art created by local artists. It was also an opportunity to see for the first time 34 paintings from the Society's Permanent Collection
All works for the exhibition were subject to selection and artists sign to say that all works on show are from their own original concept and not a copy of any other works.
The Society is a small traditional Society demanding a high standard of workmanship from its members who produce works in Oils, Water-colours, Pastels and Pencil, and whose subjects range from Land and Seascapes, Portraits, Still Life, Flower Paintings etc. The Society's approach to modern art is that it should show evidence of artistic ability and not need either interpretation or explanation from the artist.
