Any readers who may be holidaying near Bristol or Weston-Super-Mare during the next couple of weeks may like to visit the nearby coastal resort of Clevedon (just of Junction 20, M5 on the Bristol Channel).
The 55th annual exhibition of the Clevedon Art Club starts today until 27th August. It is held in the Science Atrium, Clevedon Community School, Valley Road, BS21 6AH, 5 minutes drive from J20 on the M5. www.clevedonartclub.co.uk
There are 322 pieces of art to a very high standard. The exhibition attracts professional artists as well as amateurs. It is an open, juried exhibition and worth a visit.
Four UKCPS members have a total of 6 CP pictures in the exhibition. Bev Lewis, and Pauline Longley (2 each), Diana Connor (1) and new member Jenny Campbell (1). Those of you who live in and around the Bristol area should go and have a look, and you might consider entering next year.
For those of you who don't know Clevedon, there is an historic Victorian Pier (several paintings of this in the exhibition), beautiful Georgian and Victorian houses, pebble beaches, interesting rocks and a lovely walk along the promenade. Two very good cafes over looking the pier, and views of Wales. Best seen when the tide is in, although the sea is rather muddy with silt!
