We are gearing up for the Summer Exhibition which is Saturday, Sunday and Monday, June 2nd to 4th. Don’t forget to come along.


In March, James Mitchell, Art Director of John Mitchell Gallery (founded by his father in1931 and now run by James and his brother in London) came to talk to us about Edward Seago. It was a brilliant presentation and the hall was pretty full of Art Club members and others. We even managed to winkle out the oil painters in the Club - a rare occurrence! Seago was a masterful artist in both watercolour and oil, a painter of ‘big skies’ and what better place to do this than Norfolk and Suffolk, counties of ‘big skies’.


Sixteen people had a wonderful day in April with Niki Bell painting a ‘Running Pheasant’. She worked them hard and it was thoroughly enjoyed by all who went. Niki is a very charismatic person and great fun to work with.


I will report on Laura Boswell next time round. Meanwhile come to the Exhibition and don’t forget your cheque books!


Don’t forget everyone is welcome to our evenings and workshops for slightly larger fee. If you see it in the calendar pages of the Diary ring me (842428) and I will give you info.
