Current news from Hagley Art Club
On 18 March the club was able to host another wonderful Zoom demonstration by Catherine Beale, well known for her lovely, dreamy portraits in watercolour. We had a portrait artist earlier in the year, Peter Keegan, who works with oils - it was fascinating to see how the artists' methods differed so much from each other but seeing the likeness emerge in each was equally magical. By the time this newsletter is printed we will have had another zoom presentation for our members. The use of coloured pencil with local artist Sean Counley; where he will have demonstrated Fantasy Art - fairies, hobgoblins, dragons and more of that ilk!
The Annual General Meeting was held on 12 March as a Zoom meeting. The committee was re-elected with no change of personnel and the winners of the members vote was announced as the following Tony Osbourne: Reflectin, Graham Lockett: A Rest in Shallow Water, Ann Becke: Blowing in the Wind.
We now have the possibility of being able to open the club back up to non-members again on hearing the very welcome news that St Saviours Church Hall will be open to the public from May 18th. We do have a programme arranged but the change will be too late unfortunately for our booked April and May meetings which will probably continue as Zoom demonstrations for members only (details on the website www.hagleyartclub.co.uk)
However, if the programme remains unchanged the next demonstration open to the public as well as members will be:
FRIDAY 11 JUNE Di Cope Mixed Media – Subject TBA
FRIDAY 9 JULY Kevin Turley Life portrait in Acrylics
