Sutton Art Group

On Saturday 19th November 2022, Sutton Art Group will be holding their Annual Art Exhibition in the Village Hall, from 11:00am until 3:00pm. The event is held to promote and show the high standards of work achieved by members over the past year. This is your chance to go along to the hall and peruse a large range of paintings on view, many of which may be for sale on the day. Villagers and friends are invited to attend and show support for the local group.

Entry is free, so please pop in for a browse and, if you wish, for some refreshments. The usual wonderful raffle may tempt you to purchase a ticket. And our paintings may also tempt you to make a purchase. Well worth a visit!

Sutton Art Group normally meet on Friday mornings throughout the year at the Village Hall, 10am – noon.
