A number of artists from Watford are taking part in the Pinner Sketch Club Summer Show
As Pinner Sketch Club continues to attract a diverse range of talented artists, their 71st annual Summer Show promises to be a scorching hotbed of talent. With more than 200 original works on display, this year promises to be better than ever, with participants vying for prizes. Complementing the Summer Show is Art in the Village, where visitors may view members’ paintings in up to 20 Pinner shop windows until Saturday, August 31. With such an array of talent, we speak to three members ahead of the big show, to find out what makes them tick.
