Annual Exhibition

About our exhibitions

Our members get an opportunity to exhibit their work for a week at the centrally-located Memorial Hall at South Downs National Park Headquarters in North Street, Midhurst.

As well as framed original artworks in a variety of mediums, the public also have an opportunity to buy mounted unframed pieces, sculptures and cards.

2019 exhibition

This year our exhibition will be open to the public from Tuesday 30 July to Monday 05 August between 10.00am and 6.00pm (4.00pm on the last day).

2018 exhibition

Last year’s exhibition took place between Tuesday 31 July to Monday 6 August 2018.

It followed a very well-attended and successful private viewing on the evening of Monday 30 July where sales were brisk and people generally seemed impressed with the high standard of work.
