Our beautifully presented exhibition is organised by a hardworking Committee led by our enthusiastic Chair, Sarah White. We are also supported by a wonderful team of Volunteers and Stewards, without whom the Exhibition would not come to life.
We owe a huge debt of thanks to our wonderful team of Volunteers and Stewards, who willingly help each year with a myriad of tasks on Hand In day and the following three weeks....from polishing picture glass, tucking labels out of sight, checking lists and making tea, to hanging the pictures and sorting the unframed paintings; then again on Hand Back day, collecting pictures, checking lists, handing over both sold and unsold paintings, and making the tea again!
Stewards are often our exhibiting Artists as well as Volunteers - who work in pairs together over one of three two-and-a-half-hour periods each day during the Exhibition - taking sales of the exhibits, answering questions, and looking after nearly 1,000 visitors each year.
