Demonstration and Workshop

Friday 20 September – Heritage Centre Demonstration: Richard Thorne

We look forward to seeing our members and guest at the above demonstration. Don’t forget your membership cards. I have received the following  information from the staff at the Heritage Centre which I bring to your  attention for safety considerations

‘‘We want to let you know that external redecoration works at the Teign Heritage Centre are commencing on Monday 9 September. A cherry picker vehicle will be used for the works, thus avoiding the use of scaffolding. We have been assured that the vehicle/works will not obstruct the doorway but the vehicle will be left on site during the evenings and it is possible that there may be some restricted access along the pavement or pathway at times. We hope that you will bear with us during this time and we hope you’ll agree that this work is long overdue and will be a big improvement once completed.’’

Saturday 16 November 10am to 4:30pm – Workshop at Holcombe Hall: Portraiture from Photography with Gregory Wellman

Gregory is a Devon based artist, well known for his landscapes, portraiture and painting portraying his experience in Africa. He is also a Professional Associate and Tutor for the Society for All Artists. He will be undertaking the Friday demonstration at the Heritage Centre on the 15 November showing us how to bring to life a portrait from a photograph. 

Please complete the attached application  form for the session  and return as directed.

Spring Exhibition

Allenby Trophy

Keith Bowcock’s painting ‘Early Start’ won the Allenby Trophy in the 2019 Spring Exhibition, receiving the most votes by the public for Best Picture.

There was a lot of excellent artwork on display at the Victoria Hall, Shaldon, and the competition was stiff. It was a very well attended exhibition.

We have also lost some good committee members. Continue reading “”
