'Spot the Artist' Rotary Club of St Ives 2014



The annual Rotary 'Spot the Artist' public event is underway and can be viewed today - Friday 19 and tomorrow Saturday 20 September - at St Ives School of Painting, from 10 am-4 pm.  Sale of the large postcard size artworks, all priced at £40 each, starts at 9 am on Sunday 21 September on a 'first come, first served' basis.  

If you're in the area, make the time to have a look - there are so many desirable works of art to see.  I was lucky enough to attend the viewing preview yesterday evening and felt like a 'kid in a sweetshop' - there are so many to covet!



The lovely painting below was one of the exhibits at 'Spot the Artist 2012'
