Art lovers should beat a path to a unique collection of local and regional artwork to be showcased at Temple Balsall’s forthcoming Art Exhibition on 14-15th September.
Timed to coincide with the nation’s Heritage Weekend, our historical Temple Balsall site is throwing open its doors to “welcome the world” (see earlier post for full “What’s On” over the weekend).
The Art Exhibition — now in its fourth year — is an integral part of the weekend and will open in Lady Katherine Leveson Church of England School from 10.30am to 5pm on Saturday 14th September and from 11.30am to 4pm on Sunday 15th September. It will feature artwork in a mix of media: watercolour, acrylic and textiles to name but a few.
What makes this exhibition unique, is that it will showcase artists from all the local art groups, for example the Solihull Society of Art, as well as those from further afield (Wales and Worcestershire); and professional paintings will hang alongside amateur ones. Younger artists will be represented by the school with the winning entries from its annual competition.
The theme this year was printmaking. Exhibition Organiser Elaine Winterbottom comments: “The majority of artwork will be for sale. Some will be mounted and framed while others will be simply mounted. There is sure to be something for everyone.”
