January 2013

Happy New year everyone!

Our first Art Session at Arlington Village hall is on Thursday 10th January - all welcome! The suggested theme is Paul Gauguin. Either choose one of his works as inspiration for style or subject, or just look at his life for a bit of inspiration. There's a slideshow of his work on this site http://www.paul-gauguin.net/slideshow.html



We have been once again invited to send artists to take part in the Art Exhibition at the annual Ponches Estruval Arts Festival in Picardy, France, from 31st May to 2nd June. If you would like to come and bring some of your work, please do let us know. Members of the Arts group may get some assistance with travel costs from the group, all accommodation and food is provided by the hosts in France.

Anne Howard and I attended a couple of years ago and the whole event was wonderful, the exhibition was inside the church in Ponches, very well attended, and we made some sales. That time there was no commission on sales but there may be this time - all those details have yet to be discussed so just let me know if you are available and keen to take part as soon as possible.

As you can see from the poster, the Cajun Dawgs are playing and they will also be playing for our Arlington Arts Festival in June.
