Message from our new Chairman 

It was a privilege to be voted in as Chairman at our recent Annual General Meeting. I am also pleased to say that we now have a number of new members on the committee, who are already making a valuable contribution to the development of the society and who are a pleasure to work with. We have also lost some good committee members.

Any organisation is only as good as its membership and needs the support of you all. Do not expect the committee members to do everything, they are there to provide opportunities. We have key members who already play an important part in assisting at exhibitions and other events, but we need help from others.

Our Spring Exhibition is upon us and I look forward to your support at setting up the display stands at 7.30pm on Friday 24 May at Victoria Hall, along with the hanging of artwork on the morning of Saturday 25 May. It is your exhibition and your artwork.

We have arranged a discount for members at a number of art related shops and a list of these will be circulated soon. You will only need to produce an up to date membership card.

Just a reminder that membership is now due. You can pay by bank transfer into the art society account. Account number 10714143, sort code 20-60-88. In future we will not be sending out membership cards. They can be collected from Voyage opposite TAAG. We will also be striving to increase our membership, particularly young artists.

I look forward to a successful future and your support.

Mike Wall, Chair TAS
