Gallery of members' paintings and sketches at St. Mary's Warsash 2021

2021 is the 150th anniversary of the consecration of St. Mary's Church Warsash, nextdoor to the hall where Warsash Art Group normally meet for first Thursday evening artist demonstrations and Tuesday classes. 

Revd Nicky-Sue Terry, the joint vicar at St. Mary’s Warsash, has been delighted with the response from our members to paint and draw the church during this anniversary year. Some of us sketched in the churchyard in April and May. The front cover of the July edition of the Warsash Parish News  features the wonderful drawing Tina Shaw produced from her sketches; and August's cover will have Joan Lee's mixed media painting of the cast iron lampost and lych gate (left), built up from her sketch in the churchyard. Printed copies of Warsash Parish News are available from Warsash One Stop-cum-Post Office for 45p each they and can  be downloaded from the St. Mary’s website if you register:

There will be a flower festival in the church on the weekend of the anniversary of its consecration, 10th – 12th September, with some artwork hanging in the church hall. More information about the anniversary celebrations on the St.Mary’s Warsash website:

Imogen Phillips’ sketch, 26th May, is below. All the other images are of pictures by Joan Lee.
