Thursday 29th September at Herne Farm Leisure Centre, Moggs Mead, Petersfield, GU31 4PY, from 7.30-9.30pm.
There has been a change to the PACS programme this month. Katrin Eagle has moved to the October meeting (27th) and Bill Pullen has moved to the September Meeting (29th).
Bill will talk (with illustrations) about abstract painting and its development over the last 50 years or so. Beginning with Minimalism, he will talk about subsequent evolutions and approaches, with particular reference to American & British painters such as Twombly, Stella, Hodgkin, and Davenport. Concluding with a consideration of where abstract painting is now, (with, for example, British painters such as Cecily Brown and Christopher Lebrun), there will also be thoughts about the unique value of making paintings, with some ideas about what we mean by “abstraction”.
This promises to be a great evening so do come along and bring your friends. Members free, non members a small contribution of £2 entry fee.
This time next week the first of this winter’s life drawing sessions will have started!
If you haven’t already booked it’s time to do so to get your block booking discount on a block of 4 and that’s in-addition to your PACS discount if you are a member of PACS (£1.00 per session). There are still some spaces in each group but going fast. Single spaces might be available once the term is underway but they are more expensive.

Exhibition Space available
The Flora Twort Gallery offers an exciting opportunity for local artists, schools and community groups to exhibit their work in a local venue, right in the heart of Petersfield. Whether you are a professional artist or just starting out, this beautiful space, overlooking St Peters Church, is a perfect place to showcase your work to the public and it is now your last chance to do so, as the Gallery will be closed to the public from the end of the season in November.
Dates available: 11 – 29 October

Thursday 28th July , 7.30-9.30 at Herne Farm Leisure Centre, Moggs Mead, Petersfield, GU31 4PY.
Max gained a Fine Art Degree at the Harrow School of Art. He then became an apprentice illustrator for a London studio but after a few years, he returned to his first love-painting. The post impressionist’s mark making and bold handling of colour has greatly influenced Max’s work. Currently, Max exhibits his paintings, writes for magazines and teaches art to adults.
During the first part of the evening Max intends to talk about his work and influences followed by doing a portrait of one of the members of our group. Do come along and learn more about how to use drawing as a basis for painting.
Everyone welcome. Free to members, £2.00 for non members.
Thursday 30th June , 7.30-9.30pm at Herne Farm Leisure Centre, Moggs Mead, Petersfield, GU31 4PY
Following on from a successful evening last month, when we met some of the artists in the Petersfield Arts Society, we now have an opportunity to meet 8 members of PACS Potters.
There will be demonstrations including throwing, slab work, decorating and adding handles to a finished piece of work. An electric wheel will also be set up and you will have an opportunity to try your hand at throwing, with guidance, should you wish to do so. (Please bring an apron or old shirt)
This will be a very informal evening allowing members to ask questions and take a closer look at both work in progress and to view finished pieces.
Tea and coffee will be available and there will be plenty of time to catch up with friends or to meet new people too. Why not bring along a friend? Non members £2 entry.
