Wednesday 28th March 7.30 p.m. Three Score Club Totton

This will be an important meeting for the society.
We need to appoint the Committee members for this next year, including a Chairman since Kate Rodrigues is standing down. Mary Maskell is collecting nominations. Please contact her if you would like to nominate yourself or someone else (with their permission).
  • There will be changes to the constitution, including new procedures to conform with the General Data Protection Regulation  2018. It will be necessary for us to obtain your permission for us to store safely and use your contact details, photographs, videos, etc. of yourself and your artwork. You  have legal rights over how we use that data. The unsubscribe message at the foot of this email is just one example of the new procedures that have to be implemented.
  • Help us decide how to celebrate the golden anniversary of Totton Art Society.

After the business of the AGM and refreshments we will focus on framing.

FRAME SALE  David Ridler, owner of First Floor Gallery Picture Framing at Hunts Farm Michelmersh 
David will give us the professional low-down on framing and will be bringing a selection of frames for sale.

FRAMING FAIR       Members bring samples of their frames 
Framing can be daunting if you have never been shown how to do it.
if you are an experienced artist please bring a framed sample of your work, with the back fully finished with D-rings, cord and labels. Hopefully there will be a variety of media: watercolours, drawings,  mixed media, pastels, acrylics and oils. We will lay them out and the idea is to share information and tips about finishing work for sale.  


You are welcome to bring your unwanted art equipment, magazines, DVDs, etc. to this meeting to be sold in aid of T.A.S. funds. Please clearly label them with a suggested price.  This is a good chance to have a ‘clear-out’!
