Posted by Tenby Museum on Sep 17, 2014 Exhibition Archive No Comments

Following on from last years successful event, the Friends of Tenby Museum held another Postcards from Tenby fund raiser.

Last year’s funds enabled the museum to conserve several works of important art from its collection, including four pencil drawings by John Uzzell Edwards, an oil by Anthony Devas, watercolours by Isabella Lucy Wilcox and an oil by Nellie Powis Evans.

The event once again provided a unique opportunity to purchase an original postcard (6×4 inch) sized work of art with the prices starting at £25. The works, signed on the reverse, were displayed without any information as to the medium or the artist’s name.

The event, was officially opened by artist Mark Raggett and took place at the museum on the evening of Friday 19 September 2014.

Artists who contributed work included: Gillian Adie; Olivia Argent; David Bellamy; Pauline Beynon; Graham Brace; Stan Caswell; John Faulkner; Harry Gardiner; Jan Gregson; Monica Groves; Graham Hadlow; Doreen Hammersley; Grahame Hurd-Wood; Jenny Keal; Alec Lewis; Judy Linnell; Guy Manning; David JP Morgan; Jan Palin; Sandra Parker; Doug Perry; Mark Raggett; Robert Raschke; Rosa Sepple; Kathy Talbot; Hywel Thomas; Anne Thomas-Ferrand; Linda Thompson; Naomi Tydeman; Michael Westerman; Zoe Westerman; Sue Wharrad and Beatrice Williams

The museum is grateful to all the artists who contributed work to this important fund-raising event.
