SATURDAY: Burnham's beachy art weekend
2:34pm Thursday 19th September 2013 in What's On
ART that’s both affordable and inclusive – these are the buzzwords of a full weekend of art from Somerset Art Group, opening in Burnham this Saturday.
Scenes from the seaside town’s shoreline star in a free two-day mixed media exhibition from the group’s artists, which runs 10.30am- 4pm this Saturday and Sunday, with accomplished amateur works up for purchase.
Adeena Thomas, one of the group’s keystone members, said: “Somerset Art Group has been going about four years now, after meeting through art lessons in Burnham. We primarily paint watercolour, but often acrylics, and take it in turns to meet at each others’ homes with a rotating agenda.
“We also go away to paint – we’ve even been away to Vienna – and hold workshops.”
Speaking of which, Adeena will be leading one of two painting workshops this Saturday on ‘creating texture’ and the art of rust from 9.30am until midday.
Another workshop on ‘creating beautiful glowing watercolours’ runs 1pm- 3.30pm, imparting the tricks for bringing flat images to life.
Workshop fees are £25 – book by calling Adeena on 01278- 788557.
