THE TURNER CUP AWARD FOR 2022
On Wednesday 22nd February Chilcompton Art Group met for their AGM where Chairman Peter Hinge was delighted to present the Turner Cup to member Betty Mattick. This cup was presented to the club in 2018 by founding members Harold and Joan Turner and is awarded each year to a person whom the committee thinks deserves recognition for their long service and dedication to the art club.
Betty is one of the founding members of the club in the early nineteen nineties, and over the years has also actively contributed to the running of it, serving on the committee for a number of years and undertaking several roles and responsibilities as a valued committee member. Betty still attends weekly sessions where she enjoys painting alongside the Club's friendly members at the bright and airy Chilcompton Sports Club on Wednesdays and Fridays from 10am until 1pm.
The well attended AGM set out the proposed itinerary for 2023, which will include workshops, demonstrations and exhibitions, details of which will appear here and in our Facebook group, as the year unfolds.
PRESENTING PICTURES - PETER HINGE - NOV. 2022
Club artist Peter Hinge gave a very informative and detailed demonstration all about how best to present your pictures for exhibitions and sales. Subjects covered were, cutting mount boards, choosing suitable colours to present the picture better, and the composition and makeup of the many different types of frames and how to hang them.
On Wednesday the 26th of October, members attended a watercolour workshop given by local artist Catherine Beale at the Downside Abbey Visitor Centre, and was hosted by The Chilcompton Art Club. The title of the workshop was 'Lake Reflections' and enabled members to work at using Catherine's technique of "Gravity Painting". This is where the paint from the main image features, is allowed to flow down the paper and produce the illusion of reflections, as can be seen in the photos below. We would like to thank Catherine for an entertaining and informative workshop.
