The Woodlands Art Group held an exhibition of their members' work over the weekend, with eight artists showing 127 paintings and drawings in oils, acrylics, watercolour, pencil and also drawings produced on a tablet.
The event took place in Haddenham Methodist Church on Friday 19th and Saturday 20th August, and attracted just over ninety visitors — a huge increase from last year, when the exhibition was held in a small lounge in Woodlands sheltered housing in Butte Furlong.
The exhibition was attended by the Mayor of Aylesbury, Barbara Russel.
Organisers would like to extend a huge thank you to the Methodist church who so kindly loaned the Art Group their premises for the two days, and to the donors and supporters who made all this possible, including Heart of Bucks Community Foundation, Haddenham Beer Festivals Trust and Connect Independent Living Service.
The members of Woodlands Art Group have been encouraged to hold another exhibition in 2017!
