An update from Kate, our Exhibition Organiser.
‘Inspired By’ Art Exhibition
After two unsuccessful attempts due to the pandemic we were finally able to host our first Art Exhibition in the Peter Scoley Hall. The title of the exhibition was ‘Inspired By’ and it was interesting to see what had inspired our exhibitors at the museum and RAF Metheringham.
The exhibition was on from the 30th April until the 15th May and was very well received. Five out of the seventeen exhibitors were MAVC volunteers. We’re a bunch with hidden talents!
Our exhibitors were:
Beryl Taylor - ceramic and painting; Roger Brindley - painting; Nick Taylor - photography; Janet Guest-Musson - Mixed Media; Kate Sell - glass mosaic; Roz du Feu - textiles; Lynn Baker - kiln formed glass; Samantha Neale - painting; Dave Leggett - painting; Ron Andrews - painting; Debbie Davidge - painting; Marjory Grierson - painting; Neil Gardner - pencil drawing; Katie Hounsome - digital illustration; Margaret Smith - painting; Brenda Wilkinson - painting and Mark Hodson - recycled metal sculpture.
A percentage from sales was kindly donated by the exhibitors to the Dakota fund and has been gratefully received by Ian Brett, the Chief Engineer who says there are some ‘arty’ projects they have in mind for the hangar.
Our Treasurer Janet said that there was an increase in visitor admissions, donations, memberships, sales through the shop and coffee stall during the time the exhibition was on. Also our Research Team gained more information from new visitors with their family history.
