Wednesday 28 September sees Paul Arnott start the autumn season of Chandlers Ford Art Group’s monthly demonstrations.
Paul’s topic is Digital Art. For many of us this will be an eye-opener, although we know some of the members embrace the medium to a greater or lesser extent.
There is sure to be some discussion of how far this format should be considered alongside established techniques, possibly including issues of plagiarism, as copying is so easy via computer. Should the group allow digital art at its Summer Exhibition? Come along and express your views.
This event is open to both members and non-members (£5 fee on the door, cash or card). Further details here.
Our drop-in sessions have been continuing through the hot weather, and several doughty artists have turned up each month without fail!
These sessions are free for members (only) and entirely unstructured. Just turn up between 11 am and 1 pm, and do whatever you like – artistically speaking.
We do not provide any teaching or subject matter, or even guidance. These are social occasions, though, and if you would like feedback, or wish to discuss something about techniques you are using, there’s bound to be a like-minded person to talk with.
Bring your own refreshments, although tea and coffee-making facilities are available.
Note: these sessions are at the Community Centre on Hursley Road. There is ample car-parking behind the centre itself. The Art Group’s distinctive signage will help you find the way in!
The Drop-in sessions take place on the second Wednesday of each month. For more details, see this page.
Next Saturday 10th September, artist Ron Moody will be taking a workshop for Chandlers Ford Art Group Members. The subject is pen and watercolour painting, which has proved a very popular topic.
This event has been sold out for some time, with a waiting list as well. If you are interested and you are not a member, why not join the group and get early access to the booking system for the new year?
Amazing that our Summer Exhibition for 2022 is nearly over. It ends on Wednesday afternoon (10 August) around 3 pm, with a very quick break down and collection of unsold works. If you have not visited yet, you still have time, though.
So Many Sales
We’ve had so many sales you’d think that there would be nothing left for collection. But artists have brought in their reserve pieces to fill in the spaces, and Barry’s artful displays have continued to make an excellent display of them all.
As of Sunday evening, the totals are as follows:
We have sold 31 framed, canvas or 3D works
22 artists have sold at least one work
31 artists have sold a total of 680 single cards or packs!
