The Saddleworth Group of Artists will again hold their annual summer exhibition at the Saddleworth Museum, Uppermill. This popular show is on between Saturday 14th of June and Saturday 19th July with up to fifty works including oil, watercolour, pastel and textiles on display. Styles range from photorealism to expressionistic and well known local artists such as John McCombes, Sheila Dewsbury and Janice Bowie will be exhibiting. Most of the work will be for sale.
Started in 1950, the Saddleworth Group of Artists is in it’s 63rd year and is comprised of enthusiastic members wishing to paint and exhibit their work.
Inspiration is not hard to come by in this moorland area to the north of Oldham, with local artists taking full advantage of the rural landscape and cityscapes as well as historical cotton mills and machinery.
