Local Clubs and Groups - East Boldre Art Group
One Monday morning in January 2020
East Boldre Painters
We are an informal group who meet at the Old School Field Hall on Monday mornings (except for bank holidays and the month of August). We paint and draw together between 10am and 1 o'clock. The weekly fee of £3 includes refreshments.
This year we mark the group's 15th anniversary on March 7th. To celebrate we added a preview evening to our annual exhibition held at the village hall in November. This proved so popular that we intend to make it a regular addition to the exhibition! We also intend to have a workshop and buffet at the beginning of March. The exhibition was a great success this year with many encouraging comments, lots of sales and every exhibiting artist receiving public votes for the visitors' "Favourite work" with most votes going to Carol Mileusnic for "New Forest Sunset".
We have occasional demonstrations and workshops but usually choose our own medium and subject. We regularly chose a subject which each painter can interpret in their own way and these pictures are then displayed at the School Field Hall, so currently some paintings are on the theme of "Heavy Metal" or "My Favourite Things". We also are grateful to Simon for allowing us to use a small display area at the Turfcutter's Arms.
Here are some photos taken at a typical Monday session in January and some examples of our recent work. If you would like to join us, you will be made welcome.
