We are pleased to confirm that Royston Arts Society will be restarting its programme of Market Hill Rooms activities in September.
1. Painting sessions
Painting sessions will restart on Tuesday 15 September (the session originally planned for 1 September is cancelled) and will then follow the normal pattern of meetings on the first and third Tuesday of each month.
Each session will run from 2.00pm to 4.00pm. We need sufficient time to prepare the room beforehand, so please do not arrive early as the doors will not be opened until 2.00pm. Similarly, please make sure you leave by 4.00pm so that we have time to clean the room afterwards.
Demo’s will restart on Friday 9 October at the usual time of 8.00pm to 10.00pm. Please do not arrive before 7.45pm, and leave promptly by 10.00pm.
Further details of each demo will be circulated nearer the time, but you might like to note now that on 9 October the demonstrator will be Susan Gray (“Cornish Wild Flowers in Acrylic”), and on 13 November it will be Ian Davy Brown (“Boatyard in Watercolour – Figurative and Abstract”). The November demo is a change to the advertised programme: Ian was originally scheduled to provide the cancelled demo on 10 July but will now be replacing Professor Anthony Slinn, who has retired.
If you wish to attend either painting sessions or demo’s you should familiarise yourself with the COVID-19 instructions (click HERE to view) that we have prepared in line with guidance from the Government and Royston Town Council.
3. Autumn Exhibition
The RAS 2020 online Autumn Exhibition will be going live on Friday 18 September, with about 150 paintings on display and for sale. Watch out for further information coming soon!
4. Library display
Royston Library continues to operate under restrictions because of coronavirus, and the RAS library displays are therefore still suspended until further notice.
