Dupont Art Club
21-23 August 2014
This long established art club’s summer exhibition is a Hove tradition, offering traditional representational art with an emphasis on drawing, figures, landscapes and life, wildlife, portraits and pets, costume and the nude. Dupont depicts a world of polite tranquility in pen and ink, oil, watercolour, acrylic, pastel, gouache and pencil – a digital and abstract art-free zone.
Classes and courses with professional artist teachers and models
Tea or coffee and home made cake £2
Originals, prints, cards and gifts
Vote for your favourite work – the Dupont Cup and champagne will be awarded to the winning artist on the final day.
