This project in more detail

The work of the Two Counties group offers local people, in a rural area, apart from the tremendous companionship of a friendly group, a true escape from the world in painting! With art shows twice a year the standard of work and enjoyment is high. In addition to painting days (arranged by Janet Mitchell) the group runs Guest lecturer spots - usually the first Monday each month between 7.30-9.30pm. Within a more social context, to get together with nibbles and also improve on our professional capabilities the influence of a guest lecturer takes us all up a 'notch'. We have been running Guest lectures with quite well known artists and hope we can continue, even in lean times, to support a truly valued local activity and hope to raise around £200 to continue. The evenings at the Walliswood Village Hall cover refreshments, hire of the hall and the services of a lecturer for the year. Thanks for your support
