Bishop's Stortford artists' exhibition is a masterstroke
Mayor Cllr Norma Symonds opened Bishop’s Stortford Art Society’s pop-up exhibition in Jackson Square at the weekend.
Cllr Symonds, an honorary member of the society, has attended most of its exhibitions over the past 10 years and bought members’ paintings.
Ten paintings were sold over the course of the weekend for a total of £1,000. One buyer paid £600 for four works, and one painting was bought before it could even be put on display.
BSAS president David Cooper said that he was grateful to the Indie for letting it exhibit paintings in its North Street window and for showcasing members’ works in the paper every fortnight. He said this had prompted interest in the society and increased membership.
