Adjudication of Lytham Art Society for Three Consecutive Years. Article by Jill Reidy

Lytham Art Society is just one of the many local art establishments which has forged close links to Blott Art Studios over the years. Corrine Streetly, director of Blott Artist Studio, previously demonstrated painting and art techniques at several Art Societies within Blackpool and the Fylde, including Lytham.  The Art Society was founded in 1912 and has grown from small beginnings with just a handful of artists into a thriving group with more than four hundred members.

For the past three years Corinne has been approached to provide a professional artist from the Blott Collective to act as adjudicator for the Art Society's Spring Exhibition.  
In 2012 Corrine, herself, judged the exhibition.  The following year, Christine Riches, who had been a Blott member for the past decade, was pleased to perform the task, and this year, Blott's curator, Laura Havenhand is looking forward to adjudicating on the afternoon of Sunday 27th April.
