Spotlight - Francis Vallejo's Inspiration Blog

This Spotlight we have a blog where illustrator Francis Vallejo posts pictures, almost all figurative and preliminary works, that inspire him. There's a note for each post telling you who created the artworks, and when that person lived.

Here's the link: http://francisvallejoinspiration.blogspot.co.uk/

Photos from Monnington Court

As I was unable to make it to Monnington Court today, Tom Crowe kindly took some photos. Thanks, Tom!

Angela Connor gave a talk which included a 15 minute video of her various sculptures, and explained the thoughts and process behind them.





Next month there's no evening meeting, as we have our Summer Exhibition!

Quite a bit to cover here -

Firstly, the forms for our 2012 Summer Exhibition. You should have received these along with the most recent Newsletter, but in case you didn't or you need another copy, you can find them on the Membership and Exhibition Forms page.

Also on that page you can find forms for two upcoming workshops.

On 12th September there's a watercolour workshop with John Jarvis, and on 3rd November there's a portrait workshop with John Davenport.

Lastly, there's our Annual Lunch, at the Riverside Inn and Restaurant, Aymestrey. The form, also on the same page, includes the complete menu.

Spotlight - TED Talk, Ursus Wehrli Tidies Up Art

Do you ever feel your pictures are lacking a sense of order? Maybe this will help. Note: this isn't meant to be taken seriously! The description from the site reads:

"Ursus Wehrli shares his vision for a cleaner, more organized, tidier form of art -- by deconstructing the paintings of modern masters into their component pieces, sorted by color and size.
Comedian and cabaret artist Ursus Wehrli is on a crusade to tidy up art."

Here's the link: http://www.ted.com/talks/ursus_wehrli_tidies_up_art.html
