An ideal artists present!

Posted on: December 5th, 2022

The Wapping Group’s 75th Anniversary Book “A Changing View”, makes an ideal present. Ninety six pages packed with images from Present and Past members, plus a history of one of the oldest-established groups of artists working plein air in this country.

Our pre- Christmas offer of £22.50 plus postage has been very well received, but it did coincide with deep snow, ice and postal difficulties. Because of this we think it is right to extend the special price offer.

You can order your copy at £22.50 plus postage through the link below

For UK sales price:  £22.50 single copy plus £5.25 postage and packing. For two copies £45 plus £6.25 postage and packing, a saving of £4.50 on p&p
