GRAHAM COX - PASTEL WORKSHOP - OCTOBER 2017
It has conspired to be a hectic week for the members of Chilcompton Art Club. On Wednesday the 25th we had an all day pastel workshop in the St John’s Church Hall Chilcompton. The Wiltshire based professional artist Graham Cox, gave one of his excellent tutorial workshops. Mr Cox specialises in the medium of pastels and runs his business “Moody Views” http://www.moodyviews.co.uk/ from his studio in Trowbridge. The club members and a few guests were given an overview of the medium and then guided through producing two beautiful landscape pictures in the distinctive Cox style. For quite a few members, this was their first experience of using pastels, but with Mr Cox’s often humorous style and step by step guidance, everyone ended up being delighted with the final results that they produced to take home.

THE 2017 ANNUAL EXHIBITION
The Chilcompton Art Club put on their annual exhibition on Sunday the 22nd October, traditionally it used to be held on a Saturday, but the club could only get the Sunday booking this year, and unfortunately this resulted in lower visitor numbers. The standard of work however, was perhaps one of the best seen in recent years, with over one hundred and thirty paintings put out for display. This year also saw the introduction of prizes for best in certain categories, i.e. Patel, Oils Acrylic etc with the judging being overseen independently by local professional artist Karen George, the results of which will remain a secret until the prize giving at the forthcoming Christmas lunch in December. The tombola stall was a great success, and the proceeds from which, one hundred pounds, will be going toward Pancreatic Cancer Research. On behalf of the committee I would like to thank all the members for their splendid entries, and also for committing their time to help run the event.
