Below is a quote from one of the artists who contacted us following the show:

Very well organised and very professional - Exhibiting artist 2016

…I'd just like to say a word or two of appreciation for the Art Show this year.

I was exhibitions secretary for the Essex Art Club so I have a modest experience of putting art shows on.  It is a lot of work and requires people to work together in a productive way.

Upper Broughton have got it pretty well cracked.  Your systems as experienced at the artist's end is excellent - enough information without too much.  The Private View is the best I have attended as was said at the end of your show "it could be seen as cakes and refreshments with an art show attached".

You have a brilliant team to put the pictures up (not so long to take them down - but well displayed given the space available.  And clearly your publicity is outstanding.  And there are all the other odd jobs done by the unseen helpers…..all in all quite outstanding.  You even ensure the prizes are modest but greatly appreciated.
