Art Exhibition to be Better than Ever
Trinity Arts’ annual art exhibition will this year form part of the Southport Festival and promises to be better than ever.
Expect quality paintings and photographs from regular exhibitors – and from artists further afield, including last year’s Lancashire Life artist of the year finalist Michael Treanor.
Michael, a watercolour artist from Aughton, was selected from over 100 amateur and professional artists, as one of three finalists in the Lancashire Life Landscape Artist of the year. He will be exhibiting four watercolours at our exhibition, held on 12-13 May.
We normally show over 300 exhibits and have become a firm favourite in the art-lovers’ calendar. It’s a perfect opportunity for those who want to buy original but affordable art and those who just want to while away an hour or two. Along with tasty food, there will be a create-a-stained-glass window demonstration and other highlights.
One exhibitor at this year’s exhibition is no longer with us. Well-loved Grandad AA painted many pieces of artwork, and was friends with professional artist Albin Trowski. AA died two years ago and his daughter is exhibiting some of the art he left behind. “If someone else can enjoy his work we’ll be so thrilled that his legacy continues,” she said.
Nancy Hart, who volunteers at the event, said, “There are always a wide range of paintings and excellent food. People come year after year after year and it’s always nice to see faces when they have sold artwork.”
Whether it’s a hobby or you’re a professional artist, you can exhibit and keep all your sale money. It’s just £3 per entry. Email Robertmccrimmon@hotmail.com for a form. Image is a previous exhibit.

- All works, whether framed or ‘boxed’ type canvasses, must be suitably equipped for hanging; strings and wires to be taut so as to be invisible when hung. NO CLIP FRAMES PLEASE.
