Report of A.G.M.


The A.G.M. was well attended. Kate Rodrigues was elected to the committee and Pat Scammel stays this time as a committee member. Pat Barham said she would do the Raffle in future.  Helen Davies, Membership Secretary, announced that we have a waiting list of 5 prospective members.

Helen's painting won the Eling Mill competition and she was presented with a £10 prize. Thanks are due to all the members who made an effort and entered the competition.

The frame sale was successful and the Bring-and-Buy raised money for our funds.

All the artists who did a sketch in the SAA Lay-flat Sketchbook Challenge have been offered tickets to the SAA All-About-Art Show in July.

Di asked if there were any members interested in an Adventurous Artists Group where everyone met and sketched a variety of subjects. 10 members said ''yes'' so  more information and details will come from Di


The next meeting will be on 22nd April when Vic Betteridge will paint birds in acrylics concentrating on negative shapes.


This will be followed by the watercolour workshops on Saturday 25th April from 10am-4pm in the Palm Room.
