A new format for the society's winter programme was announced by chairman Fiona Robertson at the society's annual general meeting at Gracefield Arts Centre, Dumfries, on Friday April 11th.

Dwindling attendances at the monthly evening talks and demonstrations during the winter have prompted a change to Friday mornings instead, followed by a workshop given by the artist concerned a fortnight later. Full details later.

Fiona thanked the retiring president, Margaret Robb, for her support over the last two years, and announced that she would be succeeded by Galloway-based artist Hazel Campbell.

Treasurer and membership secretary Chris Otty reported that the society's finances were "reasonable", but said membership had declined somewhat, to around 230 when it had been previously over 300. Ways of increasing membership are to be explored.
