Quex Challenge

Thanet's busiest art gang Acol Art Group are holding another of their rather brilliant Art Challenges in the grounds of Quex House this Sunday (16th July) from 10.30 - 4.00pm. Entry is open to all with a small fee of £5 payable and prizes for winners in media categories.
For the non-painters it's a fine chance to take in the wonderful Quex House and Museum with the added delight of watching artists take their pictures from blank surface to finished work. Last year over twenty entrants secreted themselves throughout the grounds producing a wide range of fine work. Many sat on the lawns facing Quex House, others tucked themselves away in the walled garden and not one ran for shelter when the rain clouds threatened.
The single downside is the judging, well one of the judges. For unfathomable reasons I've been invited to judge again, an honour of course, but against the combined talents I do feel incredibly under qualified.

Further details are available from Quex House on 01843 842168 or from AAG leader Mike Samson on 07764-626854.
