Tomorrow, Saturday May 21, sees the Fairlight Art Club’s annual Exhibition and Cheese and Wine evening in the village hall from 6-9pm.

For just £4 (£5 on the door) viewers can enjoy the usual high artistic standards while enjoying a glass of wine and supper at this highly popular event.

Fairlight art club has approximately 25 members who meet each week on Thursday afternoons from 2-4pm during term time in the village hall.

Spokesman Andrew Mier said: “The show is great fun - we have a lot of supporters within the village, and it is a social event as well as artistic. There is a wide range of work because we have got all sorts of artists - some of them are well established and have sold a lot of work and some have cards printed from work which they sell, and others are complete beginners. There is an enormous variety...in fact when we were critiqued by Dr Richard Baines he mentioned that one thing that so enjoyable about the show was the variety of work that was included. We have that because we have different artists all working with different techniques who all have their own expression.” Dr Baines is a Past President of the Royal Institute of Oil Painters, a painter, engraver, lecturer, writer, broadcaster and critic. Retired now he is spends much of his time painting, with the countryside around Fairlight as his focus.
