News Update Feb/March 2021

The club was able to host another wonderful Zoom demonstration in February, this time by our favourite and very popular local artist David “DJ” Johnson who treated us to a brilliant piece of work showing how to depict people in a landscape using either oils or acrylics. It seems incredible to see such a fabulous winter scene created in just two hours and with the possibility of maybe, just maybe, being able to reproduce it yourself!

Fired by our success we will have another zoom presentation for our members, “Portraits in Watercolour” with the artist Catherine Beale on Thursday March 18th and yet another first , that is, our first Online AGM.

We now have the possibility of being able to open the club back up to non members again on hearing the very welcome news that St Saviours Church Hall will be open to the public from May18th. We do have a programme arranged but the change will be too late unfortunately for our booked April and May meetings which will probably continue as Zoom demostrations for members only (details on the website in due course

However if the programme remains unchanged the next demostration open to the public as well as members will be :

Friday June 11th Di Cope Mixed Media – Subject TBA

Friday July 9th Keith Turley Life portrait in Acrylics

Obviously all our plans are subject to change should the government have to alter or postpone their plans but all changes and up-to-date information can be found on our Facebook page and/or website at

Voting for the members’ vote for best picture will have ended on the 28th February and the results will be announced at the AGM which will be held on Friday 12th March on the Zoom platform and appear on our Facebook page and website

The AGM will be relatively short but will give members an opportunity to hear the Chairman’s and Treasurers’ reports and also give input into the club’s future activities if they wish, or just chat about art! Members of the committee will also be voted in at this event.

Remember new members are always welcome; now being a good time to join, with reduced subscriptions, tempting offers, extensive range of professional demonstrations, and a new hobby to undertake without, at the moment, even stepping out of the door
