1st & 3rd Tuesday
Potterne Village Hall
Leader: Wendy Johnson
Meeting Al fresco 1st and 3rd Tuesdays 2 p.m. – 4 p.m. during summer months
Subject to Government Guidelines the Potterne Art Group is hoping to restart sessions at Potterne Village Hall on 6th October. Further information will be posted as final arrangements are made.
The Group has continued to function remotely as Potterne Virtual Artists (PVA – helps us stick together!!!). At the beginning of each month we set a subject, members send in their paintings and at the end of the month a gallery of their artwork is emailed to all members.
Since easing of lockdown, we have been meeting, socially distanced, on first and third Tuesday afternoons each month in local open spaces. We will continue in this manner, weather permitting, throughout the summer, not taking our usual break in August.
Information on resumption of normal group meetings will appear on the U3A website and all members will be informed by email.
One of the photographs in the Caen Steps group was taken by Kirsten Robertson, a Gazette and Herald journalist, when Potterne Art Group were painting al fresco in the Wharf in early June 2021. She was working on an article on what Devizes people were doing now that the country was coming out of lock-down. The article came out in the following Thursday edition. (I hasten to add we were socially distancing and only momentarily sitting together for the photo.)
Thank you to our NHS staff and all the other essential workers who are supporting us at this difficult time.
