MORPETH ART GROUP

Morpeth Art Group welcomed civic head Alison Byard for a visit to meet the members.

Having attended the group’s exhibition at Hepscott Village Hall in May last year, the Morpeth Mayor was very keen to see work in progress at members’ weekly meeting at Storey Park Community Centre.

Coun Byard, who has an interest in art, took time to talk to each member about their work, preferred subjects and materials, and to hear about a recent workshop with Northumbrian artist Joe Hush.

The group is delighted that the Mayor is such a support.

The next exhibition will take place at Hepscott Village Hall in April.

Meetings take place every Tuesday, from 10am to 2pm, and new members are always welcome. Anyone interested in joining this friendly, supportive group can pop along to the hall, take a look at the website at www.magart.org.uk or contact Group Secretary Alison Starkey on 01670 514694.
