6 July 2017 – Talk by Nick Ashby

We were treated to a wonderful talk by Nick Ashby on Thursday 6th July. It included a little bit of history about cartooning, caricatures and humour in art. He also told us his story about becoming a full-time artist and how he came of own the gallery in Bewdley by the river Severn.

Members are now going to spent the month having a go at creating artwork based on this month’s theme of ‘Humour in Art’.

Nick Ashby will be returning at the end of the month to see how we get on and to hold our appraisal evening on 27th July.  Looking forward to it!

Can’t wait to see the finished results! Below are some photos of the glazed pots awaiting firing.
