Chairman’s Newsletter

August/September 2016


As I write this letter the annual exhibition has only just opened, it has, however, been a slow start, probably because it is so hot. It will be hard to imagine this high temperature when I write a full report in the next newsletter near Christmas.

Here is a list of all the autumn activities – the talk programme and meeting dates of the painting/life groups. The Saturday Workshop schedule is a separate flyer.

Friday Lecture Programme

John Craig will talk about his life as engraver: Three Books and a Press.

Friday, 28th October at 2.30 p.m.

Bill Crow on the remarkable career of Samuel Rabin.

Friday, 2nd December at 2.30 p.m.

Forbes Taylor will entertain us all on Motion Pictures.
