AppArt’s Most Successfully Exhibition Ever

AppArt’s successful Easter Exhibition at Prior’s Field School is over and it has broken all records. Visitor numbers were substantially up despite several days of wet weather. Sales overall are nearly 60 % up on our previous best year and over 30% of all exhibits were sold. It is clear that AppArt’s Exhibition is increasingly well known and has a reputation for quality art that is sensitively hung and placed.

Sculpture Sales were substantially up this year and Lucille Scott’s Bullrush Bird Bath was the top selling sculpture with nine in the series being ordered. Large “top end” paintings were popular with Jamel Akib, Glenys & Victor Ambrus and Henriette van der Does work all doing well. Glass and ceramics were popular and Adam Aaronson, Julia Webster, Lisa Pettibone, Clare Pavey and Terri Smart all selling several items.

Publicity has certainly helped this year with features and advertisements in Life in Haslemere, Farnham Living, Surrey Life and all five editions of Vantage Point magazines. The Haslemere Herald review by Beatrice Philpott and another in the Surrey Advertiser series were appreciated and will shortly appear in our review section of the website. On line publicity has also helped and we are grateful to Guildford Arts and everyone who has shared our Facebook and Twitter posts.

Planning and executing a large exhibition and sculpture trail is a time consuming activity but it is so rewarding when so many artists are involved and visitors really appreciate what has been created. We look forward to a short rest before starting to think about the next exhibition in our 21st year.
