The summer programme and the 2021-22 events were organised by Maureen McKeown (Edgar), who writes: "I really enjoyed attending some of these events with some brilliant artists, and met some lovely people. Sadly, it became time to resign at the end of March this year as, having started a full-time course in art and design, I felt I needed to devote more time to my college work. I do, however, continue to be a DAGFAS member, and am looking forward to attending some of the exciting summer workshops."


Maureen's resignation highlights the fact that membership of the society's council has shrunk, due to various causes - sadly one member died, another moved away from the area - so we would welcome more members to join the council and take an active role in the society's organisation. If you would like to help, please contact the chairman, Kathleen Woods.
