ATTENTION!! What's happening with the group this summer...
Dear Josie,

Our final session for the summer at Arlington Village
hall is Thursday 23rd July:
Portrait workshop with Juliette Dodd. £5 (£2.50 AAG members with valid loyalty card)
All welcome. Bring easel & board, large paper, drawing or painting medium (pastels recommended).

In August we have our annual art show on 1st & 2nd as part of Arlington Day (see below) then the group will be meeting every Thursday in August at different outdoor locations or at Pickhams - please check the website - as the village hall is closed for refurbishment.

The next session at the hall will be either 3rd or 10th September (TBC).

Please see the plea for help below
Submisions Still Invited - have you forgotten!?

There are still spaces at our annual Arlington Art & Craft show, at Arlington Village hall on 1st August (as part of Arlington Day 2015) & 2nd August

Submissions are invited from artists, photographers and craft makers to take part.
On Saturday 1st August the Art & Craft show opens at 12 noon alongside the annual Arlington Day events. Events kick off with the opening of the art show, a picnic in the field and free live folk music in the marquee which will run throughout the afternoon until 5pm then at 7pm there will be a barbeque and a ticketed Cajun music and dancing event in the marquee. The Art Show will be open all afternoon and evening, free entry (refreshments and toilets in the hall), closing at 10.30pm! On Sunday the Art & Craft show will be open from 10.30am until 4.30pm.

On Sunday we will announce the winner of the 'Sussex in the Spring' Art competition.

Screens in the hall for displaying framed work are priced at £10 (£8 *AAG members) or £6 (£4 *AAG members) per side. You can also submit unframed work for browsers and artist's cards. 10% commission will be taken on sales.
Craft pitches in the committee room are £5 (£3 *AAG members).

Arlington Day events are supporting MS Society (Multiple Sclerosis Society) and Arlington Village Hall funds, plus Demelza (Hospice Care for Children) will be running the barbeque.

Deadline for applications for the Art & Craft Show was 15th July but is extended

The Application form is available now  - you can send a SAE to the address below for a printed copy to be sent to you or view and print a version here: APPLICATION FORM

Dear Josie,
My requests for help with the group's Annual art Show have returned just one offer of assistance - I do hate to nag but this event can not possibly be a success without some hard work.
It was a group decision to hold the event once again so, even if you do not wish (or are unable) to exhibit, please do spare an hour or so in advance to help with publicity and over the weekend to help with setting up, stewarding, selling tombola tickets, running refreshments or just welcoming visitors to the show. Help with setting up the marquee on Friday 24th July would also be greatly appreciated.
In addition to being a good event for the group, this is a fund raiser for MS Society(Multiple Sclerosis research and support)

TOMBOLA PRIZES ARE ALSO NEEDED to help the group cover costs.

PLEASE do email or call me (01323 485153) URGENTLY to let me know what you can do to hep and when. 

Thank YOU in advance for your help in making this a successful event:)
And finally, as a member of the Arlington Arts group you would be very welcome to join us at a FREE fun event this coming Sunday, 26th July in the marquee next to Arlington Village Hall. There will be tractor rides, games, live music, a treasure hunt, storytelling, a have-a-go art table and more.  Songs of Praise at 11am, bring your own picnic from 12 noon and enjoy the free entertainment.

Have a lovely summer, everyone.
