Meeting Tuesday 26 November 2019 - Founders Trophy and Year End Celebration


The November meeting was a celebration of the 2019 year of member's art, participation prizes for the monthly art challenges as well as the Founder's Trophy awards.

Members brought platters of 'art of a plate', voted for the best artworks and enjoyed a social evening together. It was difficult to chose photos so this is just a small selection to give a feel of the evening.

Artland kindly sponsored prizes for participation in the monthly challenges and ET&H sponsored some prizes for the Founders' Trophy.

Big decisions to decide on the top artworks
