Several of our members unleashed their inner Picassos today at an oil-painting workshop led by Hazel Brown.

The talented ladies produced some amazing masterpieces under Hazel’s tutelage (but there are no names signed to the works below, so we don’t know which artist is responsible for which painting!):

A special thank you goes out to Hazel from Irene, Jane, Mary, Naimh, Pat and Sue, as well as to Lis for arranging the day and for supplying some delicious lemon cake.

Tate St. Ives exhibit

For those of you looking forward to our June lecture about the Crysede textile company, you may be interested in the Summer Exhibition at Tate St. Ives.

The exhibition, which opened just a few days ago, includes some Crysede silk scarves featuring designs by a very young Patrick Heron, whose father Tom was Manager of the company. Patrick designed his first silk scarf at the age of fourteen!

Patrick Heron, from ‘The Brushwork Series No. 3’, 1998-1999.

The exhibition runs until 29 September. Admission to Tate St. Ives is £7.00 (£4.50 for concessions) and you can visit from 10:00am to 5:00pm every day, with extended hours to 6:00pm during the school holidays.
