April 22nd 2014 - A message from Peter Kraaijmes:-
"The first meeting of the Artist Club was a great success. 12 people came with a lot of enthusiasm.
The initial group was a very good mix of locals and people from abroad. Also a good mix of different kinds of artists, like photographers, sculptors, deep etching specialists, writers and painters.
So the start is good! You will hear more. The first brain strorming session has created a lot of ideas, already.

If you missed the start, why not join us next time?"
