Saddleworth Group of Artists Summer Exhibition now open

Reporter: Stuart Littleford

Well known local artists will again be exhibiting their work for the Saddleworth Group of Artists Summer Exhibition at the Saddleworth Museum.

The exhibition started at weekend and runs till Sunday 16 July.

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.

Lottery funded refurbishment of the Saddleworth Museum last year 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.

You can visit their website at: www.saddleworthartists.co.uk

Venue: Saddleworth Museum, High St, Uppermill, OL3 6HS.

Tel: 01457 874093.

Entry to the exhibition gallery is free of charge.
