Town art club exhibition forms part of Grantham Arts Trail weekend

Grantham Art Club is holding a two-day exhibition at Grantham Museum this weekend.

The club is the oldest in the town, having been established more than 20 years.

The club's members experiment with different media techniques, although painting and drawing dominate.

Grantham Art Club meets at the Community Room, Manners Street Centre, on Friday nights between 7pm and 9pm.

The club has a varied programme of events, including theme nights and workshops.

Grantham Art Club is always open to new members, so why not pop along to the exhibition and meet some friendly faces.

Club member Nelson Porter said: "We are down to around a dozen members. It would be nice to have a few new faces."

The event is on at the museum on Saturday and Sunday, between 10am and 4pm.

The club's exhibition is part of the Grantham Arts Trail event which takes place throughout the weekend.

There are many talented artists in the Grantham area with very limited opportunities to show and sell their work. The Trail creates an opportunity to encourage people to visit the town and also for artists to show their work.

This year's Trail links in with a community art event, The Bridge, that is ongoing and will culminate on September 14. It also coincides with Grantham Heritage weekend – so plenty of things to do and see.

​On top of Grantham Art Club's exhibitors, the Trail will see a further 17 artists showcasing their work around town throughout the weekend.

Take a walk along the High Street from the musueum to see photographs by Emilie Nunn, en route to St Wulfram's Church where many more artists will be exhibiting.

More artwork is to be found at The Garden Yard, Union Street (opposite Asda), including outdoor steel sculptures and murals.

Paul Letchworth opens his studio, at 49 North Parade, to the public on Saturday for a chance to see a working studio and chat to the artist.

And Blue Owl Art Gallery, at Grantham Tennis Club on North Parade, has the Kith Collective exhibition.

Printed Grantham Arts Trail brochures can be found at most of the venues and Guildhall Arts Centre. Alternatively, brochures can be downloaded at www.granthamarts.org/
