BAS 2013 Financial Report

Joy at last! The 2013 Financial Report will be delivered to BAS members at the May meeting at Shortlands. Liz deserves our gratitude for the huge amount of time spent in balancing the books.

Watercolour at Shortlands Golf Course

Another good demonstration. To have a demonstrator who used a biggish brush was a joy. Technique was accomplished and we got what we were expecting. Next month we will be treated by Mr Dellar again. It seems a long time since he was with us last.

Land, Sea & Air

Open Evening/Launch yesterday saw fewer visitors than I had hoped for. However, there were interesting and interested visitors I hope to meet again.

Hanging today!

It was good to hang my show this morning with the superb aid of Arthur. Exhibition hanging is impossible alone. Thanks Arthur. It was good, too, to share hanging time with John Marshall. His mobiles are a delight. It would be good to have our critics visit and contribute their comments to the next issue of The Easel. Open evening this Wednesday, 7 to 9 pm. Exotic nibbles and soft fluids will be available. Incidentally, mine is an off-the-wall show...

Show Time!

The hanging is on Monday next week. Open evening on Wednesday 7 to 9. Welcome all.

Honorary Vice Chairman

At the committee meeting on Moday last our Honorary Membership Secretary, Brenda, agreed to be our Honorary Vice Chairman. We are truly grateful.

Publicity

Olga is taking responsibility for the BAS publicity. Already, Olga is on the job. Super!

Three Weeks!

My diary has been marked on Mondays to count down the weeks left to get ready for my Ripley show. Three weeks left! I am on schedule.

The Easel

I have been looking again at our digitally produced Easel. It is a triumph! Our articles can now be illustrated in full colour; something we could not consider in the former printed newsletter. A former member, Bernard Victor, always illustrated his pieces and it was heart-breaking to produce them in black and white. So, let's be creative with our contributions for the Summer issue.

ART Materials again available in Bromley

I spent time in Bromley yesterday, Monday, (a visit to my dentist) and visited BAS members Taiana and Fabricio. You will know their shop, Frames and Art, at 230 High Street, Bromley. They now stock good quality art materials. I added to my kit bibs and bobs to fix string to my paintings. They have super plans for the shop that includes a workspace for toddlers and their mums. They may even have life classes (draped, of course!) in the future. Why not pop in and show your support?
