On Tuesday, 26th November at around 11 o’clock, we were honoured by the visit of the Mayor of Barnet, Caroline Stock.
A large number of our members also attended and Caroline was shown around the Art Fair. She paid close attention to each of the 175 works of art on display and showed genuine enthusiasm and warm support for all the effort it took us, to create this excellent exhibition.
Not only paintings and drawings were on display but also pottery and other object d’arte.
We also had a Memory Board to reflect back upon our Society’s 70 years existence. We were also delighted to welcome Audrey McMillan, who graced us with her visit. Her late husband, Henry was the Chair for many years and he was a most popular and creative man with a wonderful personality.
At the end of the Mayor’s visit, we were touched by the warm words of thanks, encouragement and real empathy that she had expressed.
It was a wonderful occasion and we are now full of enthusiasm to build a brilliant future for the Finchley Art Society.
That’s all for now.
Thanks very much. If you have any questions, just let me know.
With kind regards,
Chair, Finchley Art Society
