Lisvane Art Workshop


The Annual Exhibition

Our main exhibition has traditionally been held in November, and since 1988 in the Memorial Hall, Lisvane. We have, however, ventured into December, occasionally into October, and the 2022 exhibition was held in March! Owing to Covid, there was no exhibition in 2019-21.

It is always a very informal and friendly exhibition where visitors can stay as long as they wish, and chat about the paintings (and anything else!) over a glass of wine or a cuppa.

Visitors all have the chance to vote for the painting that they like the best, for whatever reason. The artist who painted the winning painting is awarded the Ted Martin Memorial Trophy, held for one year.

Please click for a review of the exhibitions in 2015, 2016, 2017 , 2018 and 2022. Images of some of the paintings that were hanging in these exhibitions are found in the corresponding gallery, others have now been transferred to the appropriate Members’ Gallery or will be found elsewhere on this site. A gallery of paintings hanging in the 2023 exhibition will be posted shortly.

The ‘Rolling’ Exhibition

This exhibition has now been rehung, after a break during and after lockdown. Please click here for more details.

The Festival Exhibition

As part of the Lisvane Festival celebrations, we also hold a small exhibition to coincide with the Lisvane Festival Fête. This exhibition is open to any amateur artist who is resident in Lisvane, though all members of Lisvane Art Workshop may enter. An impartial judge (as far as possible, a different judge each year - an art professional) is invited to choose a winning painting for the Sir Julian Hodge Festival Cup. Please click here for more details.

An index to all the painting images on this website may be found here.

2024 Annual Exhibition

The 2024 Exhibition will be held on 22nd / 23rd November 2024 in the small hall of Lisvane Memorial Hall. Opening times are : Friday 22nd  November  7 pm to 9 pm

                             Saturday 23rd November 10 am to 9 pm.

There will be a raffle and refreshments will be available. We hope to have about 40 original framed paintings hanging, plus a number of unframed originals and a selection of prints. We may also have a small selection of other craft work.

Visitors may, if they wish, also vote for their favourite painting. The artist whose painting gains most votes will hold the Ted Martin Memorial Trophy for the next year.
