23rd Summer Show
Atkinson Gallery, Millfield
9 July – 11 August 2012
Private View: Monday 9 July, 7-9pm.
Celebrating the passion and energy of local artists, the Millfield
Summer Show is firmly established as one of the highlights of the
exhibition calendar. In recent years this hugely popular show has
welcomed artists from further afield, and always features a
diverse range of works, from the traditional to the more
contemporary. An added attraction is the affordability of the
pieces on display, and artists enjoy the prestige of exhibiting in
the Atkinson Gallery’s fantastic space and the chance to win prize money totalling £1500.
