WELL-KNOWN local artists are exhibiting their work for the Saddleworth Group of Artists Autumn Exhibition at the Saddleworth Museum from Saturday, September 17 to Sunday, October 30.
This will be the first exhibition since the £1 million refurbishment of the museum on Uppermill High Street, thanks to a Lottery grant.
Always a popular show, the exhibition will be comprised of up to 100 works, with styles ranging from photo realism to expressionistic. Most paintings will be on sale.
The Saddleworth Group of Artists, founded in 1950 by water colourist Ellis Shaw and friends, currently has around fifty enthusiastic members, including some full-time professionals.
