The new chairman of Spalding Arts & Crafts Society would like to encourage more artists to get together to paint.

Mo Teeuw – who is also on the committee of the Institute of East Anglian Artists – is encouraging that with outdoor painting sessions during the summer.

She says it is hoped that in the autumn there could be a weekly get-together at Surfleet, where artist Norman Rossiter has offered studio space.

Mo said: “It’s getting to know each other and the idea would be we all help each other, but it’s about getting to paint more and working with other artists. It’s helpful to paint with other artists. You always learn something.

“The society has all levels, from professional artists to beginners.”

Members of Spalding Arts & Crafts Society exhibit their work locally.

A big exhibition is planned at Ayscoughfee Hall in Spalding for the society’s centenary next year.
