Sadly, Peter Moss our President for many years will be stepping down at this AGM, We will miss his company his advice and his humour at our meetings, however he will not be leaving the society and so we still expect to see a lot of him, at exhibitions, talks and outings, it wouldn’t be the same without him!
We are also delighted to announce that Ian Walter has agreed to stand as our next President.
Ian, for the last 12 years has supported the society in many ways, not an artist himself, he knows art and loves art, we look forward to his time with us.

109th Exhibition

There was a mistake with the final collection date, unsold work to be collected on Saturday October 10th. Between 1.30 and 3.30pm. (The Collection are holding a Star Wars weekend so parking may be more difficult than normal, please allow time for this!)


Just one new member of committee needed this year, that of Deputy Chair.
David Morris is stepping down from Deputy Chair to ordinary member, he is happy to remain in the post until a replacement is found but in order to leave the committee in a strong working order it is essential that we have a deputy that will take over the chair in two years time
Please forward nominations for Deputy Chair to our secretary Jacqui 11 Riverside Rd. Newark NG24 4RJ
