Painting at Chalk Church August 2015

Welcome back to our second visit to the beautiful scene that is Chalk Church and it’s pretty ‘Monet’ style garden area.

The weather was hot (in the 30’s) so we were grateful for the shade provided by the trees.

A good number of us came along to paint and we collected a total of £75 for the two visits this summer which we donated to the church.

A few of us worked on current projects, some of which are here. You can see what a marvellous day we had, surely there’s nothing better than spending the day in good company with glorious weather doing the thing we all love…..painting.IMG_1564 IMG_1562 IMG_1557 IMG_1554 IMG_1573 IMG_1556 IMG_1561 IMG_1567 IMG_1571 IMG_1560 IMG_1569 IMG_1555 IMG_1574 IMG_1550 IMG_1548 IMG_1551 IMG_1575 IMG_1577 IMG_1563 IMG_1578 IMG_1580

Friday 23rd October 7-9pm – Handing in paintings, and hanging

We would be grateful for a few volunteers to help with hanging!

Framed work, up to 6 per member, must be ready to hang with D rings and cord.
Mounted work, no limit, ready to be placed in a print rack.
Work can be for sale, or not.
All work must have a label with your name, its title, medium used,
£ price or NFS.
Ideally this label should be on the front of the painting or plastic cover of mounted work, or a hanging luggage label would be okay from a frame.

We are not charging commission, so please price at the amount you would like for your work.
Please note that we and the hall do not have insurance, so if you are concerned about loss or damage, then you need to arrange your own cover. If you are a member of the SAA, please check with them as to what cover you have.

Saturday 24th October 10-3.30pm – Open Day

Come along and ‘do your own thing’ today, like a normal Saturday, but with our work on display. We hope that visitors will come and see what we create during our arty sessions, and that you will be happy to chat to anyone who shows an interest in your work.
The fee for today is £5
