Robert Brindley

Robert is a brilliant artist and a firm supporter of The Monk Fryston Art Club, having attended a number of times and inspired a few members along the way.

I emailed him last night asking for permission to put a link on this blog and he got back to me in less than 24hrs, or rather Liz did, see e-mail reply below.

Hi Karl,

Good luck in your new role

First Post

This is the very first post for a new blog , hence the photo, a new day a new dawn.
Hopefully this will be the only arty photo that is ever put on this blog as the rest, I am hoping will be images from the very talented bunch of members at this club.
I joined only three weeks ago and bravely, stupidly have agreed to be in charge of publicity.
They obviously have no idea about my organising skills !
The club is based in Monk Fryston on the A63 between Leeds and Selby, N.Yorks and meets once a week.
My plan for this blog , with members approval of course is to showcase the talent that is on offer at the club.
They (we) have an exhibition once a year in the beautiful Monk Fryston Hall normally held in the Autumn, so its just been and gone, you have missed it.
However at a comittee meeting today they (we) have agreed to a summer exhibition in 2012 , hopefully with an Olympic theme.
So to all you members who are reading this , start thinking Olympic idea's for your paintings.
Athletes , Archery, Swimming, Boxing , the list is almost endless and don't forget the Paralympics too.
Here's a link to the Olympics page that will give a full list of events , http://www.london2012.com/games/

It's also the club's  21st birthday ,

bye for now
