Enfield Art Circle's annual exhibition returns to Capel Manor Gardens this year, starting on 30th July and running for a fortnight.

More than 170 original works from local artists will be on display, many of them for sale. The show includes work in a range of different mediums, including oil, watercolour, acrylic, gouache and mixed media, as well as sculpture and ceramics.

This year the Art Circle are celebrating not just their return to Capel Manor, but also their 90th anniversary. Their first exhibition was held in Pearson's department store in Enfield Town in 1932. Subsequent venues have been Enfield Grammar School, Edmonton Town Hall, Broomfield House and Forty Hall. After Forty Hall closed for renovation in 2009, the EAC exhibition moved to Capel Manor, where it has remained ever since.

Exhibition organiser Sarah Jackson says the event is the highlight of the Art Circle's calendar:

"The annual exhibition has run every year without a break, even surviving World War 2 and the Covid pandemic. During the pandemic we moved online, but we’re delighted to be able to return to Capel Manor Gardens for a live event again this year.

"Enfield Art Circle is a community organisation that provides a focus for practising and learning about the visual arts in Enfield. Our members range from professionals through to complete beginners and all are welcome to join."
