The Horsham Painting Group will be holding its Autumn exhibition and sale for one day only this weekend.

The group is holding the event at the Quaker Meeting House, Worthing Road, Horsham on Saturday November 19 from 10am to 4pm. Admission is free.

Both framed and unframed original works by members of the group will be for sale at reasonable prices.

Some cards will be on sale, and refreshments will also be available.

The Horsham Painting Group was formed in the early 1960s to give people interested in art to learn more about it and develop their skills.

Today, the group’s objective is to provide regular opportunities for local artists to meet and paint together in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere as well as offering the chance to exhibit.

The group meets every Tuesday evening during term time at the Forest School, Comptons Lane, Horsham and they are always keen to welcome new members of any ability.

Members work with a range of media including watercolour, acrylics, oils, pastel, crayon, pen and ink and mixed media.

They encourage people to paint in a variety of styles and hold regular demonstrations to help members improve their technique.

On Tuesday November 22 the group will be holding an open evening from 7.15pm, where anybody can come along and have a go.

There is no charge and materials, help and encouragement will be provided.
