Journeés de Peinture

Members of the SGA hosted an international group of painters in Saddleworth from Monday 3rd July to Friday 7th July 2023. We worked alongside artists from the USA, Switzerland and France.  We painted ‘en plein air’ during the day and hung our work in Uppermill Art Gallery in the evening. On Friday the whole exhibition was opened to the public. Evening events included a BBQ, a folk night, a ceilidh and meals in local pubs.  This event takes place each year in different participating countries.  For more information contact Helen.
