National art society tempted 'up north' for World of Glass exhibition
7:32pm Tuesday 12th March 2013 in News
A PRESTIGIOUS national art society which mainly exhibits in London is to showcase images in the town – after being tempted “up north” by a local painter.
A Society of Graphic Fine Art show titled ‘Hand Drawn’ will be staged at the World of Glass this month.
St Helens painter Paul Cousins, a member of the society, is credited with drawing them to the town.
He said: “The society is based mainly in the south of England, with members around the country including myself.
“I have been exhibiting with them in London for the past ten years and have this year managed to secure them a show in Gallery One at The World of Glass here in St Helens.
“I feel that this show offers something a little different as I am fairly certain it is the first time such a prestigious national art society has exhibited here in town.
A private view will be held on Saturday March 23 between 1pm and 4pm and the exhibition will run until Saturday, May 18.
