Saturday at the Exhibition - Meet the Artist Day

We've had pleasing visitor numbers all week but yesterday, Meet the Artist Day,  was our busiest yet with footfall in the hundreds and a visit from Yorkshire Living. 
The day was structured around a series of well received demonstrations from our President, Angela McCall, and popular artists Pat Thompson, Shirley Davis Dew and Rhona Rowley.  
Julie Lightburn and Caroline Lewis were in attendance all day, to explain their creative process and answer questions from the public.  Other members of the Society (and in some cases their models ) mingled with visitors to explain the activities and benefits that come with YAS membership.
An additional attraction on Saturday was the tea and coffee area , just off from the main Ball Room, which allowed visitors to linger and consider purchases over as leisurely cuppa. Thanks to everyone who took a turn there to keep the food and drink flowing.
Here's a selection of pictures from the day for those who missed it.  There'll be more here and on FaceBook over the next couple days.
