Visage Arts Group

Visage Art Group supporting Hospice Hope

Hospice Hope wish to express their thanks to Visage Art Group for supporting them during their Art Exhibition at the David Taylor Memorial Hall in Heather during the Scarecrow Festival in August 2018. 

The Art Exhibition displayed 200 paintings by 50 artists.  The standard of work was extremely high and the subject matter very varied.  Ann Dawson of Hospice Hope took on the unenviable job of choosing ‘Best in Show’.  This took Ann some considerable time, but eventually she chose a wonderful painting by Jackie Ward, who is pictured receiving her prize from Vicky Benton who runs Visage Art Group.

Visage Art Group meet in the David Taylor Memorial Hall in Heather every Monday from 1.00pm until 3.00 pm.  There are 23 members and new members are always welcome.  The Group holds demonstrations, workshops, social events, as well as the annual exhibition.

The photograph below shows some of the participating artists from left to right – Ian Garside, Les Kendrick, Alan Benton, Vicky Benton and Christine Evitts.

The exhibition raised £150 for Hospice Hope – thank you Visage!
