Paintings, ceramics and mosaics will be among artworks on display at the Society of Fulham Artists and Potters autumn exhibition this month.

More than 80 local artists will be showcasing the works, from natural scenes and floral art to stunning modern sculpture at the exhibition that runs from Tuesday 9 November to Sunday 14 November.

Colourful oil, acrylic and watercolour paintings will be on display alongside elegant wood carvings and glazed ceramics at The Exhibition Hall at Fulham Library in Fulham Road.

After a hiatus last year due to the pandemic, the exhibition is an ideal autumn outing, said SoFAP’s Izzy Hutchison. “The exhibition is always very colourful, with so many different styles and mediums,” she explained.

“Our artists have been very busy producing during lockdown, so there will be plenty to see. All the artists are very different, from professionals to amateurs with all types of art from paintings to pottery, ceramics and sculptures.

“This year we also have a mosaic artist for the first time, which will add a new dimension. This will be our first exhibition since lockdown last March 2020, so we are excited to be up and running again.”

Who’s featured?

Exhibitors include local designer and graphic artist Tony Hannaford, ceramicist Sylvie Joly, wood sculptor Zahi Masri, painter Sandra Smith Gordon and plein air specialist Martin Burroughs.

Local scenes to spot among the artworks include ethereal views of Bishops Park, as well as Leslie Dabson’s paintings of the Gothic Lodge and the Tudor Arch at Fulham Palace.

Also involved is SoFAP’s new chairman Tim Dann, who has taken over the reins after the sad death of former chair Patricia Watson in 2020.

“Patricia Watson was a force for good,” added Izzy. “She was very galvanising and put so much energy into the Society.”

A private view will be held the evening before the exhibition officially opens, with free public entrance for six days during the show’s run.

Artworks will be available for sale, with prices starting at £35 for sculptures and ceramics exhibited in the show’s mini market. Elsewhere, prices start at £50 for 3D artworks, while paintings and prints are available from £75 framed and £45 unframed.

The exhibition is open on 9-11 November from 10am to 7pm, on 12-13 November from 10am to 5pm and on its final day on 14 November from 10am to 3pm.
