Although our Members Exhibition at Royston Museum will run until Saturday 20th July we are already planning for our Autumn Exhibition. This will be held on the weekend of 27th to 29th September 2019 to coincide with the Royston Arts Festival whose theme in 2019 is “Our Planet” and we will be running a competition to find the best painting reflecting that theme. The themed paintings will be displayed in a prominent area and Creative Royston which organises the festival will put up a prize for the best one as voted by the visitors to the exhibition.
As usual there are two separate entry forms which can be downloaded by clicking on either the one for MEMBERSor the one for NON-MEMBERS. All the instructions for completing and deadlines for returning both forms can be found within.
The deadline for entering paintings and cards into the Autumn Exhibition is Saturday 31st August 2018.
The Royston Fringe is again staging their Junior Artist Competition as part of the 2019 Royston Arts Festival. Click on the poster on the left for more details or click HERE to the website.
