News Update September 13th

Annual Exhibition 2019 (Members Only)

It’s time to go digging into this year’s half-finished/run out of time/brutally rejected masterpieces and get them onto your easels and polished off. In other words, it’s Annual Exhibition time and we really want to fill the hall with beautiful, vibrant works of art to cheer up these uncertain times.

Lesley and I have been researching (spying) on other clubs’ exhibitions and are hoping to bring a fresh new look this year, but more of that later. The most important thing you need to know is that this year, although there are now up to 8 framed entries allowed there is unlimited unframed so you can really go mad with all those interesting and experimental efforts you might not have been brave enough to have on the wall, but may still be exactly what someone wants in their Christmas stocking.

The other thing you need to know is due to Lesley’s selfish decision to go to India to celebrate her Golden Wedding Anniversary (I don’t care if it was 2 years in the planning!) just before the Annual Exhibition, entries MUST be in before October 13th, with no exceptions because the programme is being prepared by myself, the most unreliable person in the world, and therefore needs plenty of time.

Seriously, I do hope everyone will support Lesley in her first year as Exhibitions Manager. The Annual Exhibition is our art club’s showpiece date and your opportunity to have your work displayed to the public and hopefully (if that’s what you want, personally mine are my babies and will have to be wrestled out of my arms) hopefully even sold.
