GPG Show and Sale

Join the members of the Gallery Painting Group for their Annual Show and Sale at the Bryon Memorial Library from October 22 to 24th. This group of artists gets together and paints and draws at various locations in and around London from May until October. When you work outside you learn to work quickly as lighting/weather changes which in turn changes everything you see. It is pleasant challenge to work outsite and appreciate the natural beauty of the landscape and surroundings.
