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-
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. However, for 2023, no refreshments will be available as we only have the small hall.
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.
