December looms

We are nearly into December and that busy social calendar so there is only one more Art Session at Arlington Village Hall before the New Year. This Thursday, 1st Dec, the suggested theme is A Study in Scarlet - make of it what you will. The inspiration for the theme is (from Wikepedia)
A Study in Scarlet is a detective mystery novel written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, introducing his new character of Sherlock Holmes, who later became one of the most famous literary detective characters. He wrote the story in 1886, and it was published [on 1st Dec] the next year. The book's title derives from a speech given by Holmes to his sidekick Doctor Watson on the nature of his work, in which he describes the story's murder investigation as his "study in scarlet": "There’s the scarlet thread of murder running through the colourless skein of life, and our duty is to unravel it, and isolate it, and expose every inch of it."

The following week, on 8th December, we will have our Christmas Open Evening open to all visitors, with live music, festive nibbles and drinks. Free entry. Regular attending artists will put a selection of their work on show and some of it may even be for sale. Please do pop in any time between 7 and 9pm. Jim Tipler will play guitar and Lawrie Skinner will play accordion - there may be a hint of a festive theme to the music...
