Have I got news for you, on Monday, May 19th we were "having such a good time" painting our WVA that we broke out into song.
The afternoon of, ten of the Sunny Monday painters, took a side trip to "The Venue" to see an exhibition put on by a local art group and to have our dinner at the bar. There were many works of paintings and drawings to see at the exhibition. It is nice to see what other clubs are also doing in the area and the food at the bar was good too!
On our arrival to "The Venue" we also bumped into one of our own club members, Cynthia Horsfield who is teaching painting and craft classes in the new building. What a surprise for us to see Cynthia there!
This day was a nice change and a lovely outing! We even toured the place twice.
