Report on current situation

How things change! After the AGM, the workshop in February organised by Jackie Sapp and led by fellow-member Christine Dack and the first of this year’s monthly meetings held on 4th March when Max Hale visited us again, the rest of our programme for this year was thrown into doubt.

With our 2020 programme produced by Gill Ashley under way and a sub-committee ready to plan our Spring Exhibition to be held on the Early May Bank Holiday, it was full steam ahead. Then we wondered whether this virus troubling China would affect us but decided to continue planning for the moment. Finally it became clear that we would be affected so we cancelled the Spring Exhibition and monthly meetings up to and including the June meeting. This would mean that we still had the option to do our outdoor painting in July and August and hold our Summer Exhibition at the end of August before restarting our monthly meetings in September. But we have now cancelled these activities for the rest of the year apart from the outdoor painting during July and August which may still be possible with changes to comply with government advice.

So what have we been doing? Thank goodness for the internet; we are able to stay in touch with the majority of our members quite easily. Members can still continue their painting alongside other activities for which we normally struggle to find time: gardening, housework, sorting and tidying the cupboards...

In better times, we meet on the first Wednesday of most months in St. Michael's Hall, Silver Street, Tetbury at 7:30 pm. We are a friendly group welcoming those interested in art whatever level they have reached.

Michael Kingham
