We also hold a smaller exhibition as part of the Lisvane Festival in June, in which there is a competition for the Sir Julian Hodge Festival Cup.
In June 2006, we started a ‘rolling’ exhibition in the main hall, featuring 12 paintings by members, which are replaced every three months if unsold. This has been extremely successful with 59 sales to date (October 2019) and 19 different artists selling at least one painting.
The Ted Martin Trophy was introduced in November 2010, named after the late Ted Martin, a former member, and presented by his friends in Lisvane to the artist who, in the opinion of the visitors to our Annual Exhibition, produced the best painting in the exhibition.
