- 2021 Opening Meetings
On 14th we had Les Forrester who gave a remote presentation which was very sucessful allowing us to begin to undestand his way of making Architectural Images become art. Attendance was as good as some pre-covid meetings and shows that we can attract more distant speakers to mix with speakers attending.
On 7th September we held our first face to face meeting for some time, the space available in our vevue at New Beacon allowed resonable spacing if desired. The meetings was our new President Tony Skidmore’s evening when he, Steve Banner, Noel Bennett and Graham Argent gave short presentations deliberately avoiding the use of competition type images.
