To celebrate the Society’s Jubilee year in 2012, a delightful calendar of watercolours of Knowle by local artist Mike Humphreys is available for sale from 1st October 2011 for £4.99 each.
The Knowle Society celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2012. As part of the celebrations to mark this event the Society has published a calendar with a different picture each month representing Knowle in the present day. The pictures are copies of watercolours painted by a local artist who suffered a stroke in 2009. He had to learn to use his left hand and as part of his therapy he started to paint pictures of the village, with truly amazing results.
There will be a small exhibition of Mike’s paintings including the ones used for the calendar, in the Knowle Society Local History Centre (upstairs in Knowle Library) commencing Saturday 1 October 2011 from 10.30am to 3.30pm.
The calendar will be available for puchase (proceeds to charity) on the above date and afterwards from:
- Knowle Library
- Oxfam Bookshop, High Street, Knowle
- Knowle Society Local History Centre, Saturday mornings 10am – 12.30pm.
