Spring Exhibition 2021

Welcome to our Spring Exhibition 2021

Welcome to our ‘Virtual Spring Exhibition’. Under normal circumstances our Autumn Exhibition would be held at Sutton Coldfield Town Hall. Unfortunately, we are unable to do so as it is in use as a Covid Vaccination Centre.

So, to avoid disappointment to our members and the public, we have created this page on our website to host the exhibition for you to enjoy.

Please take a virtual tour of the artwork submitted by our members and appreciate the paintings and sculptures on display. Each item is titled in the normal way with the medium used, the artist’s name and the sale price. If you wish to purchase any of the artwork marked for sale, please follow the contact guidance given below.

We hope you enjoy our ‘Virtual’ exhibition and that you will encourage your friends and family to visit our website and take a tour. If you wish to provide feedback or leave a comment, please use the comments box at the foot of the page, after the images.

If you are interested in joining the Sutton Coldfield Society of Artists, further details can be found here https://suttoncoldfieldsocietyofartists.co.uk/?p=34
