During the summer, the online magazine Painters Online (www.painters-online.co.uk) has been inviting individuals and art societies to enter a HeptARThlon – an Olympic-themed painting competition.
Individuals could select a medium and a theme from the lists below and submit a single artwork, or ‘Go for Gold’ by submitting 7 paintings. A special prize was offered for the art club submitting the best collection covering each medium and theme. Macclesfield Art Group has submitted a group entry, with paintings from 7 of our members, in all 7 media, covering all 7 themes - we await the judging with interest and fingers crossed. The submitted paintings are shown below, and our thanks go to the artists involved.
On 21st September, Alan, from Hartington Framers, is coming to our group meeting with samples of his frames and mounts and will be happy to take orders. He will also bring a small selection of ready-made frames as a taster.
On 5th October he will deliver any orders taken and also bring an extensive selection of ready-made frames and mounts as a general cash and carry sale.
If he receives sufficient orders he will look at the possibility of future visits.
