Membership Survey

Hello Everyone
I have been asked to conduct an Opinion Survey on how you would like to celebrate our Centenary year in 2021.
100 years is quite an achievement for any Society.
As this year is unlikely to have an exhibition next year hopefully would be fairly certain.
This would be a double celebration of coming out of lockdown and celebrating the continuation of The York Art Society .
There would be a Subcommittee to organise this when we have found out what members would like to see happening.
So any ideas would be more than welcome.
Special Advertising so anyone with contacts with York Press or any other Media please let us know as advertising is key to any Exhibition.
Someone to open the event so if you know anyone famous (doesn’t have to be a movie star)
Run up before the event competition for painting maybe a school to send in picures .
Suppliers of Materials to sponsor the winner
We need ideas so its over to you all, it is your Society
Please send me your ideas then I can see which would be the most popular.
Regards Lynda Baker
