From 23rdAugust to 20thSeptember we shall be showing the penultimate Solo Exhibition of the year, when the work of member Margaret Cross will be on display.Margaret took up art when she retired from science teaching five years ago. She had admired her pupils’ efforts in art and wanted to have a go herself. Starting with watercolour classes at Malvern Hills College, she progressed to drawing and then acrylic painting and pastels. Margaret finds it a challenge and has enjoyed doing courses where she is guided in her painting. As with all beginners, a lack of confidence often prevented her from just getting on with it, so the Art Group has been a big boost.This exhibition shows the progress and variety of art work Margaret has attempted over the last five years. She hopes that it will encourage others to go on a painting course, take up lessons or join a friendly art club. BARBARA HILTONCMS Art Group
