Important message to all members

CLUB MEETING next MONDAY, FEB 1st.  2016.    
URGING everyone to be present.   There are a number of very important topics to discuss.   

1.    MEMBERSHIP.  We have a waiting list.   

2.    CLUB OUTINGS.   Yorkshire Sculpture Park.   16th May.   ( much to discuss).
           Other suggestions,  The Hepworth Gallery
                                            Leeds City Art Gallery.
          
3.    CLUB PROJECTS.    a).   TOUR de YORKSHIRE. 29th April.  Comes through Monk 
              Fryston.   Do we join in the village festivities?
              IDEAS PLEASE.  Jean still has the Olympic hoops which could be useful.

                                        b).    GIFT OF MONK FRYSTON DRAWINGS.   How do we make best use of them?


4.    EXHIBITIONS.    1).    EXHIBITION SPACE for a month long exhibition in Selby is 
               Pencilled in.  Your thoughts and ideas are IMPERATIVE.  So far, a preview for 
               invited  guests and possible lunch time invites are topics that have been discussed 
               with the owner of the shop.   Along with some thoughts on window displays.  
               WHAT ELSE ?   WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE ?   WILL YOU TAKE PART ?   
               The advantage is that members would not have to man the exhibition.
               We need YOU AT THE MEETING to discuss this.

                                  2).     ANNUAL EXHIBITION.   Ian and Malcolm are looking at venues.
               ESSENTIAL to get a date organised ASAP.   Do you want another Exhibition if we 
               go  ahead with the month long Selby exhibition?  If so, WHEN. ?

5.     COMMITTEE.     There are a number of  vacancies on the committee that need to be 
               filled.  The nature of the positions need to be defined and thought given to other 
               Tasks, such as:-
               Refreshments,
               The notice board.
               Cupboards.
               Books.   And so on.   No 'job' is particularly arduous, could YOU DO IT? 
               Please give a lot of thought to ELECTING NEW MEMBERS TO THE COMMITTEE 
               at the next CLUB MEETING, in approximately a months time.   YOUR ENJOYMENT  
               of the club is dependant upon YOU taking part.   
               
              PLEASE MAKE EVERY EFFORT TO BE AT THE MEETING ON MONDAY AND THE 
              SUBSEQUENT ONE.   IT REALLY IS IMPORTANT.


Jean and Rod.

Charles Kelly upcoming demo

Hi everyone, 

Just a reminder that at the next club meeting there is a demo by Charles Kelly.

 He will do a short demo and then it will be our turn. We will require a couple of pieces of watercolour paper preferably stretched or on a block, watercolour tubes, large brushes and plenty of water as he tends to work loosely. He usually brings reference material.

If someone could take a few photos for the blog please, as I personally can't make it that day.  

Regards,

Karl
