A message to all members from our Chairman

Dear SDAS members,

At this difficult time for everyone, we have decided that all SDAS activities will be cancelled until June or until further notice. Not only do we need to keep our members safe and well, but we find that increasingly the artists we have booked for out demonstrations and workshops are also cancelling. In addition, venues such as the Gateway in Seaton has also closed its doors for the time being.

Of course this unforeseen break has its bonuses. It gives us an opportunity to spend more time honing our artistic skills, so that when or if this years exhibition comes round, we will have produced veritable masterpieces – perhaps!

We want to assure members that the committee will do everything in its powers to resume normal service when the time allows. In the meantime, feel free to post notices on our Facebook page, check for news on our website, and it is particularly important that friends and colleagues keep in touch by phone and emails etc. so that no one feels left out.

All that remains is for me to wish you well in these unprecedented times, and in the words of – well someone would have said it Im sure – KEEP PAINTING!

David Evans.
