41 artists to display work in Deepdale Garden Centre

by | Oct 24, 2016 | News | 0 comments

A week-long art exhibition began on October 22 which sees 41 local artists showing off their work.

The exhibition is taking place at Deepdale Garden Centre in Barton.

It is the garden centre’s first ever art exhibition.

Deepdale owner Bill Faulding said: “We are delighted that so many local artists were willing to display their work and that they were willing for their works of art to be displayed on straw bales!

“We think this method of display is a first for our area and we are proud to present such excellent works of art in this manner.”

Visitors can expect a huge variety of quality paintings, prints, mixed media works and garden sculpture.

Bill said there had been a lot of interest from local artists.

“The demand to exhibit has outweighed the space we have and we have sadly, had to turn many folk away.

“If this first exhibition is a success and if the general public enjoy and appreciate our local artists there is every possibility that another exhibition will occur next year.”

The exhibition runs until next Sunday, October 30, and is open from 10am until 4pm each day.

Entry to the exhibition is free.
