The Arlington Baths have several talented artist members. In previous years the club had held two group fundraising exhibitions which were held in the Reading Room and successfully raised money for the club’s restoration project. I submitted a proposal to the General Manager and the Arlington Board Chairman to curate, hang, manage and organise an exhibition with the aim of providing a showcase for members and as a fundraising event. This was discussed and agreed upon. The exhibition opened in early November and ran for two weeks. It included the work of 30 artist members and invited guest artists.
The poster advertising the exhibition shows the fabulous original Minton tiles which are on the floor of the Turkish Suite.
The donation to the club exceeded £2k which was a terrific amount and fantastic effort by all those who supported the show.
It is planned to have another club fundraising exhibition in November 2021. I’m looking forward to it!
