Poole & East Dorset Art Society is a long established and very active local art society. We were founded in 1924 and count notable figures such as Augustus John and Henry Lamb amongst our past members.

PEDAS is an inclusive society and welcomes artists in all media genres - figurative and abstract painters, sculptors, felters, embroiderers, photographers and installation artists.

Paul's previous talk demonstrated his style of painting with oils for a sea scape. This demonstration will be a lively talk, painting a landscape in a larger format than his demonstration two years ago.
An exhibition of artworks which have been inspired by existing artworks:

Sculpture becomes painting
Painting becomes sculpture
Music and poetry can become either

The next PEDAS exhibition will be the Autumn Exhibition, which will be on show at The Gallery Upstairs during 14th - 31st October.
PEDAS manages this delightful gallery in Upton Country Park. It hosts a wide variety of exhibitions by groups and individuals.

Art UK is the online home for every public art collection across the UK. It already features over 200,000 oil paintings by some 38,000 artists. These artworks are in museums, universities, town halls, hospitals and other civic buildings across the United Kingdom. Most of this art is not on public view. Later in 2016 they will be expanding the project to include watercolours, pastels, drawings and prints uploaded by collections. In early 2017 they aim to add sculptures.
The death of David Westhead has recently been announced. Dick Hewitson has written a tribute to his friend.

Hi Folks,
Just to make life more complicated we have just been informed that St. Aldhelm's is not available on 29th September (open evening).

So, Penny Crichton-Seager's second session will be on 13th October and the pointillism session will be shunted into January.

SO NOTHING WILL HAPPEN ON 29th SEPTEMBER - (you could sort out your art work for the PEDAS exhibition)

Got that?
