Rotary Club, St Ives, Cornwall
"During the 2017 St.Ives September Festival, the Rotary Club of St. Ives will hold, for the eleventh year running, their annual 'Spot the Artist' Exhibition and Sale. On display will be artwork by more than 300 well known professional and 'up and coming' artists, from St Ives, nationwide and also overseas including many whose work has in the past been accepted for inclusion in the prestigious annual Royal Academy Summer Exhibitions. This year about 100 of the artists will be giving work to the event for the first time.
The artists sign their artwork on the reverse, so in theory you will not know his or her identity until you have purchased the painting.
From early in September images of the artwork included in the sale (with the sale numbers) will be posted on the www.facebook.com. page of the Rotary Club of St Ives.
Artworks will displayed for viewing at the St Ives School of Painting, Porthmeor Studios, Back Road West, for two days, on Friday 15th and Saturday 16th September 2017 between 10.00am and 4.00pm each day.
The sale will take place on Sunday 17th September , following the exhibition, at the St Ives School of Painting. Doors will be opened at 9.00am and closed at 2.00pm. You may need to queue if you wish to buy a particular painting – some enthusiasts even queue overnight before the sale."
