2016 New Exhibitor Winner – Sian Reading.
As we start to get organised for the 2017 Titchfield Art & Craft Show we thought we would remind our visitors and exhibitors of some of the winners from the 2016 Show. We always make sure we have a picture of all our winning works of art, especially the New Exhibitors, as these are used in the catalogue for the following year.

Setting up for Titchfield Art & Craft Show 2016
We have already made a start to the busy week that runs up to Titchfield Art & Craft Show. On Sunday we started putting up some of the boards that we display all our artists work on. We do this in order to give us enough time to get all 400+ pictures hung on Friday ready to be judged at 4pm. We also then have our Preview Evening on the same day, so Friday is a very busy day for us.
We are lucky to be supported by a lot of volunteers who help with cooking for the preview evening, hanging artwork, receiving Art work from artists and setting up the hall ready for all of this. We are very grateful for all the time that people put into helping us make this all possible.
Artists will be dropping off their work on Thursday afternoon and Friday morning, and then we hope to see all of our special guests at our Preview Evening on Friday, The Preview evening is ticket only, tickets can be purchased from Titchfield Community Centre.
