Artists Open Houses - Thank You
Posted: Thursday, 06 November , 2014
A big thank you for everyone who displayed their work and helped to organise and run the Artists' Open Houses Exhibition at Whitstable Yacht Club. It was a wonderful to see such a high turn out of artist’s family, friends and club members at the launch party, and during the 3 week-ends that the show was open, nearly 1000 people visited WYC to view the art on display. The feedback from the public was incredible. We hope to hold the event again next year and we look forward to you joining us in 2015.

If you missed it, the exhibition will again be open for the next two weekends: 25th-26th October & 1st- 2nd November, from 11 am - 5pm. Thanks to Robin South and all the other volunteers who've worked really hard to make this a success, and to all the artists, both members and non-members, for choosing WYC to display their work.
