The Hope Project

This year as part of the exhibition, there will be a display entitled “HOPE” where each artist has contributed a painting reflecting their own interpretation of hope. The paintings are all for sale and range from a bowl of cherries to a portrait of a baby and a picture of a nude woman on the bathroom scales peering optimistically at her weight. There are depictions of nature – beautiful flowers, birds singing and scenes of fishing – as well as images on global themes of peace, saving wildlife and climate change.

Local crafts are on sale with many ideas for Christmas gifts, including cards, jewellery, scarves, cushions, wooden items, ceramics, fused glass and mosaics and ragdolls.

A superb café will be selling tea, quality coffee and delicious homemade cakes.
