6/7-05-17 Co-op Art Exhibition puts Lutterworth in the Picture

LPSC members, Alan Shean, Louise Beech, and Michael Vernon, looking after the stand.

Photos by John Haddon

The Lutterworth Photographic Society Co-op, Cotesbach Co-op Art Group, and Lutterworth Watercolour Artists Co-op, held a highly successful exhibition in Lutterworth Town Hall. The three groups, all sponsored by Central England Co-op, put on the display over the weekend 6th/7th May. The LPSC organised by Club Secretary John Haddon, displayed a selection of 70 prints on the first floor, and ran a 'slide' show of a 100 images of members pictures, prepared by John, on the ground floor. The show attracted over 200 visitors on the Saturday, and nearly a 100 on the Sunday.

Many thanks to all those members who contributed to making the Co-op's three local art group’s exhibition such a success. A great show and proceeds from the refreshments and donations, over £450, go to the two charities supported by Central England Co-op, Newlife and Rainbows.
