Report on current situation
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.
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
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...
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.
