Preview evening 2017 - Photos by Diana Jarvis Photography

Outstanding! Quality work and full of diversity! Inspiring! And many more enthusiastic comments from visitors to the exhibition. This is an exhibition with a difference - it is not managed, not selective, but relaxed and celebratory with local artists given the freedom to express what they really believe is important to them. There was eagerness and concentration from the large numbers who attended over the weekend, many of whom purchased original artwork and prints. Their comments were much appreciated by the volunteers who give their time freely to raise this annual event. Also appreciated was the comment from Dr Catherine Burke from Cambridge University that LEA officers from the past, such as Henry Morris and Sir Alec Clegg, both convinced of the fundamental importance of art in society, would have been delighted with the concepts behind the exhibition.  This year’s Top Twenty, chosen by Alastair Hull, Haddenham Galleries, Sheila Ceccarelli, Access Art, and John McGill, Sculptor, went on to a Christmas exhibition at Haddenham Galleries.
