Again, the Elgin Artists gathered for its annual Christmas Lunch in 2021 in Jan Ryan’s beautiful garden on Friday 3 December. This year, the lunch took place just a few days after the Open Studio exhibition, so much of the discussion centred on the success of the exhibition and the generosity of Peter Jones in making his workshop available to mount it.
Although we had about two dozen Elgin Artists and Associates in attendance, we missed Peter and Liz Jones, Rodney and Maryann Wulff and Mick Adamson, as a consequence of medical procedures, treatment and/or rehabilitation. It was wonderful that Barry Pullen and Mary Adamson could join us.
As usual, Jan turned on perfect weather and mention was made of Bill’s sketch of the old studio, which was on the cover of this year’s exhibition catalogue. The day concluded with plans being made for further excursions and gallery visits in 2022.
