Appraisal Evening with Jim McIntyre (BWS)


More beautiful and interesting paintings were brought to Trimpley Village Hall for the appraisal evening on Thursday 27th March .  


Clare Spencer introduced Jim McIntyre our appraiser for the evening and provided us with a surprising synopsis of Jim’s life and work. He is no stranger to the society and as a ‘life coast-13member’ he has sat on the committee and provided great support for the society for many years. He provided a very thorough and insightful appraisal of each painting offering coast-12praise and constructive criticism to help the artist with their work.

The works of art submitted by members, as always, were of a high coast-11standard and a good range of subjects based on the theme for the month which was ‘Coast’ .

I have taken a few photos of some of the painting but would coast-9love to hear from other members with any contributions for this post or for other pages. We need more images of the coast-8societies activities and the art work produced by members so please send in your comments,. Thanks:  Kathi Burrell

Please send your thoughts, ideas and pictures to Kathi Burrell at or to  Karen Hotchkiss  at

Work Night at Trimpley Village Hall

There was a good turnout tonight at the work night at Trimpley Village Hall. We are pleased to welcome another new member, Ruth, who joined us for the first time.
The theme for March is ‘Coastline’ and there were a number of items, such as rocks, shells and driftwood, brought in to draw or for inspiration. Shelley also brought a crate load of books on the ‘coastline theme’ from her extensive library – Thanks Shelley!
