SANDRA BURNHAM - ACRYLICS DEMONSTRATION - 19-04-2023
At Wednesday's club session (19-04-2023), club member Sandra Burnham gave an excellent demonstration outlining her current methods for using acrylics inks and collage in order to produce some stunning paintings. The method involves drizzling lines of coloured inks across the canvas and then spray them with a fine water mist to allow the inks to flow and spread, she then teases out sections using a small brush to produce branch like effects, as well as using paper towels to lift darker areas. In the second part of her demonstration she explained how to use collage effects by using patterned materials to represent leaves and foliage, with added refinements using actual plants as stamps in order to imprint their structure onto the canvas. Examples of Sandra's fininshed works are shown below.

DANIEL CHUTER MIXED MEDIA WORKSHOP - 29TH MARCH 2023
Members of the art club attended a mixed media workshop, held at the Downside Abbey Visitor Centre. Tutor, Daniel Chuter, demonstrated, and explained, all about his impressionistic method of painting landscape scenes. The members were given a landscape photo to work from, and then followed Daniel's instructions. His method uses several types of medium, from acrylic paint to wax crayons, and over the space of three hours the members left with an almost completed final painting, with perhaps a little more work to be done at home later.

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.
