MAC Exhibition

The Meads Art Circle (MAC) is holding its first exhibition on the 27th and 28th of July in the St John’s Parish Church Hall. The exhibition will be open from 10.00am to 4.00pm on Saturday and 10.00am to 4.00pm on Sunday.

The group was formed by members of Catriona Millar’s Art Class which meets every Tuesday and Wednesday in the Parish Hall in Upper Meads, Eastbourne.

 

Thirteen artists will be exhibiting a wide range of work including landscapes, figurative work and local scenes. MAC Chairwoman and founder Anne Schauerte was inspired by the work of her fellow artists.

 

“I looked around the class one day and I thought the work was so impressive that it deserved wider appreciation,” said Anne, “the standard is very high across both the art classes and the diversity of styles and subject matter really is incredible. So forming our own exhibiting art group seemed the natural next step. I think visitors will be delighted by the exhibition.”

 

Art class tutor Catriona Millar is very proud of her students. “I think its wonderful that such an innovative and creative group has grown from the art class,” said Catriona, “we have so many talented members its very exciting to see them sharing their work with the public. I am sure this exhibition will be the first of many to come.”

 

MAC’s first exhibition runs at St John’s Parish Church Hall in Upper Meads, Eastbourne on the 27th and 28th of July.
