Four Parishes Arts Society - March 2004
This month's meeting at
Quarley was a demonstration by Elizabeth Nash, a local artist from Broughton,
who specialises in painting on silk. She gave a slide show of her work including
banners which were commissioned for the Salisbury Cathedral Festival and some
from the church in Broughton which were designed and worked by the villagers
including the children. These can be viewed during Test Valley Open Art week.
Some of these banners were as large as 9 feet in length. She also showed us some
of the many techniques used when painting on silk.
next meeting "The Life of a Stonemason", which was scheduled for 13
had to be postponed to 20 April (still
at Monxton Village Hall). Would members please try to pass the word around!
forward to the summer, it has been decided not to join Test Valley Open Art
exhibition this year, but to have our own Exhibition on a smaller scale. This
will take place on 19 June in Monxton Village Hall. Veronica Rushworth-Lund has
very kindly agreed to our having a marquee in her grounds adjacent to the hall
where we shall serve strawberry teas. We hope that our members will start to
make plans to exhibit on that day.

the committee members. (No artistic talent is required! !) -
