Saturday 14 July – change of artist

The artist on the programme for 14 July Sarah Hill (flowers in watercolour) has been ill and has had to cancel her visit.

I have been fortunate in booking a replacement artist Lewis Hazelwood-Horner based in London, who is well respected in the South, with exhibitions at some important galleries, collected by art galleries, and travels to many countries with his art. I feel that he will give an excellent afternoon on the subject "Flowers in Watercolour".  If you view his website you will learn much more about his award-winning work.

Your committee hopes sincerely that you will be able to come on 14th July for 2.00pm start, will tell your friends, and make this a special afternoon. 

Regards Ron D W (Programme Secretary)

Collection of payments for art sales still outstanding

I still have some payments for artists who were unable to collect at the AGM or self help (as per last post). I will bring to the next demo and also July self help but if anyone is unable to collect could they let me know ( Please note all small payments under £10 are in cash and at some point will have to be collected!

Kind regards 

Marianne (Treasurer)
