Regrettably, we have to announce the cancellation of the Nichola Martin Charcoal Workshop scheduled for Thursday 6th October. Our apologies for the disappointment this may cause.
The Club is saddened to hear of the death of Jim McLure who passed away last weekend following his recent illness. Jim was a stalwart of the club over many years. A past President of the club, his Monday morning pastel classes were extremely popular. Jim was also the leading figure in the establishment of the Club’s Gallery in Dunfermline Kingsgate Centre. He will be sadly missed. Our sincere condolences to Jim’s family and friends.
The funeral will be held at 2.45pm on Tuesday 4th October at Dunfermline Crematorium. Jim’s family have made a request that donations in lieu of flowers be made to Kelty and District Art Group.
