NEXT MEETING: WEDNESDAY 24TH JUNE 2020 AT 7.00PM
FENCIBLE LOUNGE, UXBRIDGE RD, HOWICK (NEXT TO THE HOWICK LIBRARY).
I must say, I heaved a sigh of relief when it was announced the Fencible Lounge would be reopening. It’s been four long months, but our country is now back on track and I’m sure you’re all looking forward to enjoying the wonderful things our art group brings to us as individuals, and to the community.
Our next meeting will be on Wednesday, 24th June in the Fencible Lounge with Evan Woodruffe demonstrating in Acrylic painting mediums & additives. Some of you will remember Evan from the critique evening he gave us at the beginning of the year.
While we have moved to Alert Level 1, please continue to observe the guidelines around this level by staying at home if you are sick or unwell. Also wash and dry your hands, cough into your elbow, and don’t touch your face.
The Midwinter Exhibition is all go, and your committee is working hard to bring this together, a little last minute. The exhibition will host its opening and prize giving on Wednesday, 15th July at 7pm with the exhibition open to the public from Thursday, 16th July to Sunday, 19th July. Be sure to invite all your friends and family.
With the community embracing #buylocal, now is the time to promote our group like never before, and encourage people to support their local artists and economy.
You will find an entry form for the exhibition attached to this email. If you are unable to print out the entry form, copies will be available at the cottage.
It was wonderful to see our cottage gallery open for business once again. I will be talking on Howick Village Radio 88.1fm on Wednesday, 10th June about our gallery and to promote our upcoming exhibition. I’ve always been told I have a great face for radio.
We now have an Instagram account, so if you use this media platform, be sure to like and follow us at @HowickArtGroup. And once again, I encourage you to join our Facebook group. Many other members have said how wonderful it is to see one another’s work and our celebrations and the odd failure.
I’m looking forward to seeing you all once again at our upcoming club night.
