Here are some photographs from this weekend and my joint art exhibition. As you can see we were able to use Palazzo Aragona Cutò (built in 1712), which was the perfect location, we also had perfect sunny weather too!
We had two large rooms at the top of a double staircase, complete with high painted ceilings and tall shuttered windows.

We are a little group that paint and chat together one morning a week, out of this friendship came the idea of organising our own art exhibition. Each of us had about ten paintings and a wall/panel to display them on.
This is my part of the exhibition, a mixture of coloured pencil pieces and some larger oil paintings.
We had a lot of people come and visit us and there was even a queue outside the door on Saturday morning before we opened!
I met so many people who enjoy art and made a whole load of new contacts, the whole exhibition was a very positive experience...
.........and there was even a little time after lunch on Sunday to sketch the view from the window.
