Annual art exhibition by the "10 x 4" art group
Wednesday 5th February to Sunday 16th March
The Wilderspin National School Museum is proud to be hosting the annual exhibition of the "10 x 4" art group. Formed in 2005, the group began with ten members, all local artists, each contributing four pieces of work on the same size canvasses to the exhibition.
For the last five years "10 x 4" has exhibited at the "Pave" Jazz-Cafe bar in Hull. Most of the members have received an art education and their work covers a variety of styles, using contemporary sources for their inspiration.
