Promoting the Autumn Exhibition

Although summer is still with us, our 202nd Fall Exhibition is drawing close.  We will be back at the DeGrey Rooms for 7 days between Monday 26th October and Sunday 1st November 2015.

We are currently preparing our promotional material and any members who wish to submit their work to be used in publicising the event are invited to do so. Please send your images for consideration to the Exhibition Secretary, Shannon Morgan  elizabeth_morgan1@hotmail.com by Friday 4th September.

The final posters and fliers will be available to download in due course so keep watching the blog for more news.

Entry forms for the 202nd Exhibition are available now and can be downloaded from here. Downloading the entry form from the web helps to keep our administration costs low, so if you're able to do this for yourself, or for a friend who may not have internet access, it's a great help to us.

Posters, fliers and entry forms will also be available from demonstrations and workshops closer to the exhibition. Closing date for submission of entries is Wednesday 21st October.

Finally we'd also welcome any recommendations for framers, art supplies, printing and other support functions. We are frequently asked for advice in this area and are compiling a list to help members locate reliable services.

George Smith's Garden

Last Saturday 8th August saw our annual retreat to George Smith's garden for a day of painting in the open air.

Grateful thanks to George for being such a gracious host once again, to Lynda Baker for all her organisational efforts and of course to everyone from both YAS and Newton on Ouse who attended or otherwise supported.

Here's a sampling of photos from the day, courtesy of Lin Taylor.

You can see more pictures over on the Newton on Ouse Art Society Blog.
