The George & Dragon, Ightam

It is that time again when Derek Burt and I have a show at The G&D, Ightam.
Date: Friday 19 June 2015 to Sunday 21 June 2015.
We hang on Friday and take down on Sunday afternoon from about 4 pm.
Book your tables for fine fare - it's Fathers' Day on the Sunday.
Come for a chat, anyway.
Remember to bring your family and friends.

Rubens

RA and Ruben and his legacy: a visit with Derek. This is truly worth a visit. Thoroughly enjoyable and encouraging. 

Plagiarism

A recent trial in the Netherlands found an artist guilty of plagiarism. He had painted a portrait from a photograph he found in a publication. The photographer challenged in a court of law and won. Lesson? Work from our own photos.

AGM fun

I enjoyed yesterday evening at Ripley. Thank you all for the kind words and the gift. The critique session was great fun and encouraged me to explore different ways of observing and creating.

Ightam Show

Ken sold one. Derek won a commission and sold a piece after the show. I weep! I wept even more after the news this evening - £2.2 million for an unmade bed at auction. Saachi has done well again...

George & Dragon, Ightam

Laughter filled the exhibition room Yesterday and it is expected again today. I have booked a table for lunch and will be there for the whole day and hope to see you. It is a very good show.

 

George & Dragon, Ightam

The exhibition of works by Derek, Ken and I is up and running this weekend and ends at 6 pm on Sunday. Come and see! The show is in the pub function room on the first floor. Grub at the pub is outstandingly good. For the tennis addicts there is a very large television screen, too.

Today is Ightam's Village Fair day centered on the parish church. Visit and enjoy everything; have fun!

BAS COMMITTEE

New members are needed to join the BAS Committee. I, Allan, retire at the end of this year, so there is a need to find a new chairman. Our secretary, Christine, is overworked with the secretary's job being combined with that of exhibition organiser, so the job needs to be split. Some members will remember that Christine became our secretary by default when our previous secretary, Ann, died. Ann had been doing both jobs and Chris had only just taken on one of them when we lost Ann. Who will take on the task of exhibition organiser?

George & Dragon, Ightam

Derek Burt and I with a friend will be at the George & Dragon for our annual show at the end of June. We hang on Friday the 27th and show over the Saturday and Sunday. The GRUB is GREAT! so book your tables. The COMPANY is SUPERB! The WORK will be SECOND TO NONE! Come and enjoy with your family and friends; make a day of the pleasures to be found at Ightam, which include Ightam Mote.
