Dupont 2021 Art Exhibition. A Wonderful Success!

The Dupont Art Club has just completed a successful Annual Art Exhibition. Our Chair could not have put it more succinctly in his following recap.

“We were a little concerned about our Art Show, as we were holding it in October not August and were still in the Covid Pandemic. But, as we had 110 pictures on show and 440 visitors, it was a wonderful success, so we need not have worried!
I was extremely pleased of the high standard of the art work, a number of visitors remarked on what a great selection of quality artwork we were showing.

The Dupont shop looked stunning and made sales of over £450, our thanks go to Tina Stiles O’Brien and Judy Alexander who organised the shop.

Our special thanks go to Judy, not only for manning the shop over the three days, but also for providing her credit card reader which enabled us to sell pictures and gifts paid for on line.

We sold 13 pictures, one visitor bought 3! And because of their high standard of work, Victor Perkins and Carol Cleveland both received a commission for a new painting.

So thank you all those that took part and helped with manning the show, in particular the new members who joined us recently.

Once again the competition to select the Dupont artist of the year was the highlight.
Zoella Reardon was the runner up with her painting “Autumn”. Congratulations Zoella. I hope you enjoy the wine.

The Dupont artist of the year and the winner of the Dupont cup was Victor Perkins with his drawing “Leena”. Congratulations Victor.

He was presented with a bottle of champagne and a certificate to record his win.

 

Numbers at sessions are increasing every week with many new members; they are very welcome and hopefully will be able to take part in next year’s Art Show.”
