The club holds two exhibitions a year at the Royal Hampshire County Hospital, one in the spring lasting 10 weeks, and another in the autumn lasting 14 weeks. Each Exhibition of about 150 paintings is displayed in the main corridor of the hospital.
Each member may submit three paintings up to 65 cm x 57 cm, or two up to 92 cm x 70 cm, and an additional two paintings which will be hung if space allows. (pictures must be fitted with large mirror plates on either side about a third of the way down from the top) Click here to read check list for paintings.
Artists pay a £3 hanging fee for each entry and will also be charged a 20% sales commission, both of which are given to charitable causes within the hospital. These payments are currently split 50:50 between the The Magic Wand Appeal which is raising funds to improve facilities in the Children’s Unit and the Winchester Hospice Appeal.
