Notices for members 

Our Xmas party scheduled for Tuesday 19 December is cancelled as the centre will be closed for maintenance work.  This will now become a New Year party on Tuesday 16 January 2018. 


A quick reminder to check out the list of forthcoming demonstrations and workshops so that you do not miss one.


Two of our long-serving members retired recently from the post of Secretary – Mary Needham and Muriel Kaye.  Between them they organised the meetings, acquired and ran venues for the showing of members’ paintings at several local venues and efficiently kept the club going.  Mary, who did this for 36 years, was given Lifetime membership. Thank you to you both!

Venues for displaying paintings

We have 20 paintings on display at Southwood, Birdcage Lane.  Liaison - Kathy and Carrie

There is a permanent display of members' paintings at Brighouse Rest centre.  Members can display one painting which can be for sale.  Anyone wishing to add their name to the waiting list can contact Jean Webster to do this.

Workshop Demonstrators

See the Gallery Exhibitions/Demonstration evenings section for photographs of the demonstrators at each workshop.  As each workshop takes place, we will add a photograph as a permanent record. 


Whatever your chosen medium, mentors/advisors will now be available at all workshops to offer help and advice on all aspects of painting.  Maybe you would like to try a different medium?  Someone can give you advice!

If you are an experienced artist, please add your name to the list of mentors/advisors.

We hope that this gives encouragement to all our members to try new methods and materials and to expand our horizons.

See the Events/Workshops section for details of forthcoming demonstration and workshop evenings.
