Richmond Rotary president holds art exhibition at The Station

Richmond Rotary president Emma Fulton.

Richmond Rotary Club has opened its charity art exhibition at The Station in Richmond.

The exhibition runs until Wednesday, November 17 and includes 120 pictures, in addition to wood carving, ceramics, and sculpture.

All the work is for sale in aid of local charities as well as Marie Curie and Médecins Sans Frontieres.

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.

“We are grateful to the Station staff for their continuing support.”

The exhibition was opened by Richmond Rotary president Emma Fulton who commented that it was wonderful to be holding the exhibition again after last year’s coronavirus restrictions.

She thanked her fellow Rotarians who had helped to set up the exhibition and said: “To a huge extent the exhibition symbolises what Rotary stands for at its best.

“It is firmly based in our local community, gives opportunities to a wide range of great local artists, and ultimately benefits many less fortunate people through the charities it supports.”
