Richmond Rotary Club has opened its annual charity art exhibition at The Station in Richmond — the ninth time it has held the event.

The exhibition runs until Wednesday, November 16 and includes more than 100 pictures, in addition to wood carving, ceramics and sculptures.

All the work is for sale in aid of local charities.

Organising the event for Richmond Rotary Club, Richard Gibson said: “This is a really exciting selection of a wide variety of art by professional and amateur artists.

“The Station is a great venue where lots of people can enjoy the art without booking or charge.”

The exhibition was opened by Rotary President Jos Huddleston who said it was wonderful to be holding the exhibition again.

He thanked fellow Rotarians who had helped to set up the exhibition and said: “As someone involved in education all my career, I know how all art enriches the life of all learners and enhances their contribution to the community.

“This exhibition illustrates Rotary at its best: supporting the community, providing opportunities to local artists and benefitting others through the funds raised for charity.”
