Looking at Art
We had an excellent presentation from Vivian and Tony on “Children in Art” with over 50 members signed in.
Tony started with a controversial Religious painting from 800AD “What is the significance of painting two left or two right feet on Mary or Jesus?”. Vivian covered more modern paintings right up to pictures like Joan Eardley’s “Street Kids” painted from life in the slums of Glasgow.
it is a fascinating journey through painting time and well worth a watch, even if you saw it on Thursday evening. A Zoom link will be sent to you by email so look out for it.
Its very easy to access, simply click on the link in the email when into the presentation simply press the arrow in the bottom left of your screen to start the show, then to enjoy the full screen click on the square in the bottom right of your screen which will give you the full picture.
Sit back and enjoy it.

CORONAVIRUS - SUSPENSION OF THE SOCIETY'S
As you may know, the most up to date Government health advice was issued last night which asks us all to avoid non-essential contact with others and stop all unnecessary travel.
In the circumstances, the Management Team has decided to suspend the Society’s meetings with immediate effect until further notice.
We will keep the situation under review, and hope that this situation does not continue for too long a period.
We will review everything on a regular basis and keep you all informed but please also check on the website for our latest update.
