The next competition isn’t really a competition at all.
It is almost a year since Covid restrictions were introduced, resulting in our loss of access to the Club studios. During that time we have tried to keep members engaged with the Club through our monthly competitions but we know that members, including those who do not enter the competitions, are being artistically creative in many ways. Some have private studios and have continued painting there. Some have signed up for online courses or taken part in TV based life classes. Outdoor painters and sketchers have been able to continue their work, albeit with social distancing constraints.
We want to create an exhibition of members’ Covid creativity on the Club’s website. Please send a jpeg of one piece of your work, completed since February 2020, the piece that you like best, or that shows some new achievement, or that has some special meaning for you. Accompany the illustration with TWO SENTENCES that explain why you have chosen the piece. ( Previous competition entries are eligible). Please do this as soon as possible but not later than 6pm on Thursday 4 March. We will then create a new members’ exhibition gallery on the website.
