Mystery Painting – can you help?
This rather splendid abstract was apparently owned by a family in Budleigh with an elderly relative who recently passed away. They were selling off some of the art collection and it’s possible it was owned by Glyn Whittle, one of our founders who died recently - he was an avid art collector so it’s possibly his family.
It’s quite a large acrylic abstract and appears to be unsigned so if any of our members recognise it, could you please get in touch with Ralph Bingham or John Washington - no prizes but it would good to establish something of its provenance.
The James Tatum Workshop for the Club is on Thursday 16th May at the Temple Methodist Church Hall. James will start with a talk and demonstration, then the group will paint a subject of their choice from sketchbooks and/or photos in any medium they wish. Whilst the group is painting, James will offer individual help and guidance to all artists with suggestions for each painting. After lunch there will be a second demonstration with the rest of the day similar to the morning programme.
The cost for the day is £40 with the class limited to 10 people – kindly note there are now only a few places left – please bring your own packed lunch. Lisa McDermott will be collecting names and fees (cheques to BSAC preferred please) at our next Club meeting on 27th March or by post to Lisa by 16th April.
This year's Club Trip will be on 23rd May to this wonderful location, packed with sculpture, a gallery of paintings and many other works of art set in 26 acres of glorious, peaceful, Dorset countryside.
We'll be transported by coach from Budleigh and there'll be facilities for lunch and refreshments at the venue throughout the day.
The cost is £25 per person which includes the entry fee and your seat on the coach which will leave the Public Hall at 9.30am, returning by 5.30pm.
If you'd like to book your place please e-mail John Washington at email@example.com and he'll reserve a ticket for you. Spouses and partners welcome.
You can also book your place at our next monthly Club meeting on 24th April. Cheques payable to BSAC please.
Club Spring Lunch

A new series of Portrait Painting Sessions
Following the 2018 series of monthly portrait workshops, we now have our schedule of sessions starting Monday 11th March.
If you'd like to join, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to put your name down or find out more.
We hold them on Monday afternoons in Budleigh at the Temple Hall from 1.30 till 5.pm and the cost is £5 per session. If you've not attempted portraits before, this is the ideal class to learn how to achieve a likeness. We all take it in turns to sit as the subject so each week there's somebody new to paint or draw and guidance is provided if you want. You can sign up and pay for the course in advance at a discounted price or pay for one-off sessions if you prefer at a slightly higher fee. Places may be limited so make sure you e-mail in good time.
