Painting for Pleasure Exhibition 2014

Some photos fro our latest exhibition at the Coffee morning:


We are very fortunate in having quite a number of members in the group who have a good experience of painting in watercolour, acrylics, gouache and oils, and who are only too happy to share their skills with members of the group who have never painted before. Our members say that they enjoy improving their skills and have pleasure in sharing their talents. Acrylics, the easiest of the painting media, is our main theme at the moment. Come and join us.

Magaret’s paintings unveiled

Maghull Station Volunteers have done much to enhance the appearance of our local railway station in recent years and won wide recognition for their efforts. In the light of this year’s celebrations marking the 150th anniversary of the birth of Frank Hornby, the inventor of Hornby trains, their latest project was to commission a series of paintings depicting the ‘Frank Hornby’ era in Maghull. Step forward a most talented artist, Margaret Walton of the Maghull and Lydiate U3A painting group. Margaret produced a series of seven delightful works depicting scenes of yesteryear at the station and in the surrounding district. The paintings were ‘unveiled’ at a special ceremony on Tuesday 5th March, by the Mayor and Mayoress of Maghull Cllrs Steve and Gwen Kermode accompanied by representatives of Merseyrail, led by Sally Ralston, Corporate Social Responsibility Manager, members of U3A and of course the Station Volunteers. Here are some pictures of the event.
