Art Exhibition funds artefacts


The annual Winchelsea Art Exhibition, organised by the Millennium Artefacts Society was held over this summer bank holiday weekend, August 27,28 and 29. It was held in the Winchelsea Court House (pictured) and included  a variety of pictures, from professional artists to gifted amateurs. There were also lovely pieces of jewellery from Helen Morgan Jones and Julia Cooper’s ceramics and porcelain.

The paintings demonstrated a variety of media, watercolour, acrylic, oils and pastels and mixed media. There were photographs as well as lino prints and woodcuts and pencil and charcoal . The images were for sale and a number already had their red dots, to denote “sold”. Robert Greenhalf, always popular, had sold all four of his entries. Three paintings had been selected from the work of pupils at St. Thomas’ Church of England Primary School, Winchelsea.

The exhibition is held to support the upkeep of the various Millennium Artefacts. These are the town sign opposite the New Inn, the millennium tapestry in St Thomas’ church and the town beacon, which is on the site of the old windmill.
