REFLECTIONS ON YVONNE ARNAUD ART 2018

The exhibition was opened by Dr Perdita Hunt OBE who has an outstanding track record of senior positions in significant Arts related organisations – not least being her recent, highly successful, position as Director of Watts Gallery Trust.

Taking time out from her holiday to come to the exhibition’s launch, she spoke of the importance of organisations such as Guildford Arts in providing showcases for local and national artists and stimulating awareness of the importance of art for the well being of community life.

This view was enhanced by many visitors who commented on how much they looked forward to the annual show.

For some, for whom this exhibition the first they had seen, there was surprise at the high quality and diversity of the exhibits and the professional manner of presentation.

Equally pleasing was the feedback from participating artists who remarked on how well  the exhibition was organised and how much they enjoyed meeting the public – and each other.  Such an opportunity for the artists to network and talk about their work, in what is often a very solitary process, was much appreciated.

Of course, Yvonne Arnaud Art will return next year and the team are already searching for the next group of artists that can offer a stimulating and varied collection of outstanding artwork.

Many thanks to the YAA team for a job well done!
