December “Joyous” Art Sale & Exhibition

350 people visited our three-day “Joyous” Art Sale & Exhibition and enjoyed the beautifully presented paintings by 14 artists of the club. View the story here.

Tuesday morning and afternoon art classes will recommence on 3 January.

Tutors are Claire Cross in the morning and Grant Waters in the afternoon.

Tuesday social evenings and non-tutored workshops at 7-9pm (closed 27 Dec); drop in and have a chat with your fellow artists. Invite friends to come and meet some of our friendly and helpful members of the club and hopefully they see it’s a great chance to get back to painting, get some inspiration for starting out.

Annual Subscription fees of £33 (£44 couple) are due on 1 January 2023, not on 1 September as in the past, as the club extended the financial year to 31 December 2022.

The AGM will be held on 21 February 2023, followed by a short presentation by Robert Kidner. We also would like to hold a display of work by our club members, especially for that evening, to be enjoyed in a relaxed social setting. Further information will be sent out in January.

Visits to Art Galleries

Chris Davies is planning a visit in January and we will circulate details once confirmed.

Out and About

The club has secured a grant from SODC to cover 50% of costs in encouraging members to become active in events such as open day sketching, so we will be planning such monthly trips for members and friends of the club. If you have any location you would like to visit please let us know and we will include it our 2023 programme.

 Wishing you all a Very Happy Christmas and a healthy and successful New Year.
