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.
