See AWESOME ART at the Downlands College RME Art Exhibition
Gala Opening: 7pm Friday 17 September
Exhibition: 10am - 4pm, 18 - 25 September
Every year, the doors open to reveal a dazzling array of fine paintings and prints of glorious colour and variety, detailed and unusual silver, glass art, ceramics and crafts. Each alcove and turn revealed something of beauty to be admired or bought.
Not only was there something for the avid art collector, but enough variety of style and form to please everyone.
