Next Physical Meeting
Visit the NEWS Page for all the up-to-date information.
We have some
NOT SO GREAT NEWS
to impart regarding our Hoped For Exhibition.
Sorry to say but the
De La Warr Pavilion
has decided that the Studio, our usual exhibition space, will NOT open at all for the remainder of this year.
We have tried to find an alternative venue but to no avail. The cost and restrictions regarding attendance make it logistically and economically unworkable.
So SORRY NO EXHIBITION in 2020.
But HEY more time to create those masterpieces for 2021
Due to the continuing uncertainty and issues on sanitising paper items and handling cash we have also decided to POSTPONE our FABULOUS RAFFLE until 2021.
If you have purchased tickets do keep them safe you could still be a winner.
We have had the go-ahead from St Augustine’s Hall, and the government, to resume our meetings.
Please be aware that these instructions may be subject to change at short notice.
Members of the committee have visited the hall to make plans regarding seating and making sure social distancing can be adhered to and all recommended safety measures can be followed. If you do attend in September, we do please ask that you follow the directions and advice given to you on the day. If you have been unwell or exhibited any symptoms in the two weeks prior to a meeting please DO NOT attend.
Please use hand sanitiser on entering the Hall
and we ask that you maintain social distancing throughout your time in the Hall.
The number of people in the Hall at any one time will be strictly controlled so please be patient if we ask you to wait to gain entry.
If you are a paid up member and attend this event PLEASE bring your Membership Card with you.
Saturday September 5th
As things continue to change regarding
more information about how this meeting will run will be published at a later date.
The idea is – members, paint, draw, craft, a subject of their choice/choices in any medium to reflect their experiences during the Lockdown.
All pieces of art to be of the same size, 4 x 4 inches, and must be able to be attached to a flat upright surface for display to make a large
‘Lockdown Memory’ Exhibit.
This is not a competition or challenge
so there is no pressure.
It is a chance for our Members to be together although we are apart.
So just paint and have fun, then keep your artwork safe until you can hand it in and even better you’re not limited to just one piece, so far I have done a dozen, but they must all be the same size.
In these extraordinary times we will do what we can to keep you informed of what we are doing and meanwhile invite you to take part in our regular Monthly activities here on our website.
Take a picture of your monthly competition entry
and e-mail it in There is still a CASH prize to be won.
