The group was shocked and deeply saddened to learn last week that one of our members had passed away. Chris Kemp was one of our newest members but in the two years he was with us he made many friends. His artistic talent, enthusiasm for art and optimism in the face of serious illness truly impressed us all. Chris will be sadly missed. Our thoughts are with his family.
Our latest news
A new term for the art group, a new decade and lots of interesting projects coming to life. We are lucky to be living in such a beautiful area with so much inspiration for our work. The recently furbished Aberdeen Art Gallery is also a fabulous incentive to get creative; we can hardly fail!
Members of EDAG gathered with family and friends to remember and celebrate the life of Mabel Mckechnie, one of our longest standing members. She had been a very talented artist and a friend of many in the group. She will be sadly missed.
”Homeward Bound”, by Chris Woodthorpe was the winning painting in the Peoples Choice competition
We start our new term tomorrow (Thursday August 29th) and hope everyone is full of ideas and inspiration after the summer break. The exhibition is seven weeks away; lots of time for new projects, but the weeks will fly by. We are looking forward to another term of creativity and friendship.
We had our last art session this week: no more Thursday art group meetings until we resume on August 29th. We do, however, have a summer outing, a trip to Pitmedden Gardens on July 18th, when everyone will have a chance to socialise (not that we don’t do that in our art sessions), enjoy the beautiful gardens, and tea room, and, maybe, do some sketching. We are really hoping for some new members, so, anyone who thinks they might like to have a go at painting, sketching, or other crafts, please come along next term and see what we are about. Happy Holidays!
