News update 12/06/2019
Message from your Editor, Sallie Gurney
Welcome to the first Hagley Art Club. It’s been a long time coming and is still a work in progress but hopefully, once the editor has got her act together, it will become a useful reference page for our members!
So, items of interest this month:
The exhibition of works by Hagley Art Club Members are now displayed at Hagley Railway Station. The first posters to be displayed were
- Alex Macskowski – The Steps, Worcester (inside the waiting room)
- Graham Lockett – Light and Shadow on Durdell Door (platform 2)
- Sallie Gurney – Winter World (platform 2)
- Margaret Pritchard – Copper Beech (platform 2)
- Bob Haywood-Lister – Planters (platform 1)
- Mike Spencer – Rowing by the Reed Beds (platform 1)
- Ann Becke – A Mouse’s Eye View (platform 1)
- Sheila Hill – Abstract 1 (platform 1)
- Jacqueline Bradley – Farm in Winter (platform 2)
- Sue Merrill – Romancing the Tide
However, the changeover has now taken place and new posters have been displayed.
The second batch of posters is now on display at Hagley Station. The current posters are:
- Sunflower by Gwen Wardle
- Polar Bear by Judy Dovey
- Cat Walk – the Winter Collection by Rosemary Milner
- Autumn Glory by Lesley Moore
- Tommy by Hazel Gillard
- Blue Sky by Gail Belchamber
- Clent Hills by Steve Millward
- Reflections by Shirley Campbell
- Romancing the Tide by Sue Merrill
- Rowing by the Reed Beds by Mike Spencer
These will stay up until the end of July when the collection will be rotated. The exhibition has been well received at West Midlands Railway, and we are hoping to be able to produce a new set of posters next year, so get painting! https://www.westmidlandsrailway.co.uk/about-us/news-desk/hagley-art-club-brings-splash-colour-local-railway-station
The exhibition at Russells Hall Hospital is now in place on the main corridor.
Plans to arrange a club trip to the Patchings Art Festival in July are proving problematic as we have not managed to get enough numbers to arrange transport at a reasonable cost, Trying to join up with another club has not helped as finding a mutually convenient day with transport available on that day has been almost impossible. It is looking likely that it will go ahead on Saturday 13th July but once confirmed, participants will be emailed directly with details.
Thanks: Following our Chinese Painting demonstration on Friday 12th May, we received the following letter from Glynis who donated her fee to Guide Dogs for the Blind :
