Dunluce Parish Church hosted its annual Art and Photographic Exhibition from April 29 to May 2 in the Parish Centre, Bushmills, raising £2,471 for Bishops’ Appeal for Ukraine.

A cheque for Bishops’ Appeal was presented to the Bishop of Connor, the Rt Rev George Davison, when he visited Bushmills on May 15.

The exhibition, which returned after a two-year break due to the pandemic, has always been a popular event with residents and visitors to the North Coast over the Bank Holiday weekend.

More than 40 artists exhibited their work, with around 160 artworks on display.

The exhibition was official opened on Friday April 29 by guest artist, Julian Friers PPRUA.

Among those who attended was eight-year-old Amelia from Stormont, who was buying her first ever art work. Amelia chose exhibit number 81 – Jack by Coleraine artist, Brenda Harper.

Aileen Gault, Coordinator of the recent exhibition, said: “We’d like to thank all the artists and photographers who exhibited, our great team of volunteers, everyone who visited, bought artworks, raffle tickets, and enjoyed the lovely cream teas.”
