Newsletter – January 2018

Chairman’s Jotting by Sue Williams

As we welcome 2018, we can look forward to a packed programme with interesting challenges.
Your committee has worked hard. The Pop Up Shop has proved to be very popular. It gives everyone the opportunity to display and sell their work to the general public. This year, we are hoping to let members enter two paintings and ask, where possible, for members to bring two easels on which to display their work.
Do refer to your membership card and the Internet to keep up-to-date with what we are doing.
At the AGM we thanked the non-committee members who quietly work behind the scenes. Tony Yates is a great support to all of us on the committee. His humour, advice and sound counsel is much appreciated. Mary runs the tea seamlessly and thanks go to all the members who help her. Thanks too go to Chris and Brenda who run the monthly competitions, the ladies who hire out our videos and Peter the framer. Where would we be without David and his video camera? Our demos are enhanced by having the two large screens from which to watch the artist working. Lastly, a big thank you, to you the members. Your kind comments and ideas reflect how the society can progress.

Happy Painting!
