Despite the chill in the air only a warm welcome could be found at the private viewing of The Ryde Art Collective’s Upcycle Xmas Exhibition on Friday, which was followed by the group’s first ever pop-up art sale at Quarr Abbey over the weekend.
All the stops were pulled out for TRAC’s 5th anniversary year event with a beautifully decorated blue, white and silver Scandi themed gallery providing a complimentary backdrop to a stunningly varied plethora of arts and crafts.
Paintings, pottery, prints, jewellery and all manner of handcrafts using natural materials were on display.
The pop up art sale offered breathtaking bargains with prices ranging from 50p to £50 – something to suit everyone’s pocket.
Freya Conway took lead on this exhibition with Katie Hobbs and Anne Axford as second leads. Katie made a bespoke Scandi cake in the TRAC colours, which tasted as good as it looked.
