Our December meeting was our Annual Members Gallery, where each member could exhibit one of their paintings. All of the fifty five members attending then voted for their favourite painting in each of the five categories; portraits, landscapes, abstract, wildlife and pets.
After the refreshment interval of homemade cakes and other goodies made by the members, it was time for the result of the winners in each category. It was then the turn of the committee to determine from the five category winners the winner of the best in show painting. Much to Joan Passingham’s surprise, her painting ‘Winter Wonderland’ was the winner.
Our next meeting is on Saturday 3rd January at St Augustine’s Church Hall, St Augustine’s Close, off Cooden Drive. Doors open at 1.50pm for our Annual Appraisal of member’s work at 2.30pm; which will be given this year by Jenny Reynish.
