Our first meeting of the year was a fascinating talk on the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood given by Dr Rosalind Malandrinos. We had a very good attendance - there was hardly an empty seat to be found.

Rosalind studied in Italy, and is an art historian and lecturer at UCT. She went into great detail about the Pre-Raphaelites and their work. We will now be able to appreciate these works and their symbolism when we see them.
There is a detailed write-up on the subject in the February edition of our newsletter, The Palette.
The subject of our challenge for the January meeting was "Happy Holidays" and members responded by bringing some bright and creative works. See below:
