Well known local artists will again be exhibiting their work for the Saddleworth Group of Artists Summer Exhibition at the Saddleworth Museum from Saturday 27th August to Sunday 30th October. This will be the first exhibition since refurbishment of the museum.
Always a popular show, the exhibition will be comprised of up to fifty works, with styles ranging from photo realism to expressionistic. Most paintings will be on sale.
The group, founded in 1950 by water colourist Ellis Shaw and friends, is currently comprised of around sixty enthusiastic members. Some are full time professionals but all are seriously committed to their work.
The Saddleworth Museum, which has been closed over the past year, received a Heritage Lottery Fund grant of £1m which has
transformed the existing museum with improved access, enhanced displays and exhibitions and an engaging learning programme, all ensuring the museum’s future for many years to come.
