AN ART showcase running this weekend has been given a remembrance theme.

Wath Hall is hosting a free exhibition of original drawings, paintings, sculpture and needlework until Sunday with 120 exhibits on view.

It also features a remembrance poppy window display, a silent poppy auction, a raffle and refreshments.

Ray Lewis, of Wath Hall, said: “We have many exhibits from Rotherham Society of Artists with a special display based around the waterlily poem by Ted Hughes.

“It is also the debut exhibition for artists from Ravenfield Art group and we are joined by members of Darfield, Wath Trinity and Wath St Joseph's Art groups as well as local individual artists. 

“Lots of the artwork is for sale so you could grab an early Christmas treat.”
