MESSAGE from the KADAC President, Gillian Ross

To All KADAC Members and Associate Members and to all interested friends,


1. Proposed Reopening of Club

It is a DELIGHT to announce that (all going well with the lifting of restrictions) we will open as an Art Club on TUESDAY 10TH AUGUST 2021.

Because we have been unable to hold an AGM during the last year, on that first day back, we will hold a short Special General Meeting. A normal painting session will then follow for those who wish it. More information will be sent out and members updated about reopening plans nearer the time. The remaining 9-months of members’ subscriptions will run from 10th August 2021 until 10th May 2010.

2. Outdoor Painting

For the first time since March 2020, KADAC members met in Kirkgate Park to take part in some painting ‘en plein air’; ten members attended. The weather was incredibly kind, and the mood was cheerful. Another Outdoor Painting Meeting will be organised for mid-June. Once again, it will be open to all members but, unfortunately, due to COVID Restrictions, members will have to pre-book a slot again. Hopefully, we will have less restriction on numbers later on in the Summer. Emails will be sent to members inviting them to opt-in to further Outdoor Painting Days.

3. Annual Exhibition

Plans are at an early stage to hold the KADAC Annual Exhibition from 9th to 12th September 2021 (inc). It is really exciting to think that we might be holding an Exhibition this year and starting to get back to normal. Plans will be confirmed as soon as possible.

Updates will continue to be sent out to all current members over the Summer.
