As in previous years we have invited the Mayor to open the exhibition at the preview evening and make the Mayors choice of his favourite picture. In addition we are inviting a professional artist to also come on the preview evening and select a minimum of three Fareham Art group members’ exhibits. These will be awarded vouchers of £15, £10, and £5.

Craft Fair

Running alongside the Fareham Art Group members exhibition will be the craft fair. We have room for 15 crafters and these spaces will be available to both members and non-members. These will be available at £35 per 6ft table. Items offered for sale must be crafted by the seller.

The crafters will be selected to ensure a range of different types of craft. This will be done by the Exhibition sub-committee. Dates for application will be advertised later and subject to the above limitation will be on a first come, first served basis.

Crafters will be expected to be set up for the preview evening and have the appropriate public liability insurance.
