A new arrangement of the tables is proposed, starting next week. There will be two set-ups of still life so that people will be nearer to the subjects, and the model will be in the corner near the bar with two rows of painters - the first row for those seated and the back row for those with easels. It was also suggested that members down for presenting the model and still life might pair up with each other, so that one would be responsible for the still life only one week and the other for the model - and vice versa the other week.
Also today 27 members delivered their canvases with Insects on Leaves for our group project. Such a colourful collection and so many different styles and approaches to the challenge (see below). Great work! It was decided unanimously to have these individually framed, at a modest cost to each member (payable next week) and then delivered by the committee to the Earsham Wetland and Wildlife Centre, Bungay, where they will be put on display in the café or elsewhere. This centre is a thriving and admirable new venture and we are pleased to be associated with it.
As The Bank Arts Centre is still in some disarray and working on plans for the future, further EAG exhibitions there are on hold. Don’t forget next week to bring two framed pictures to replace those in the Eye Medical Centre - one of which could be the “Pots”, just returned to us from last year’s group project.
