It was such a busy day that I totally forgot to take any photos. We had our usual regular Roamers and as many new people. We worked on paintings and drawings. We are making a frieze of canvases with the theme 'migration' and some people continued to work on these. One person continued to work on the painting we have been making together for the St.Ives Farmer's Market.
We shared a delicious lunch of vegetarian chilli and rice with tortillas and mini pastries. This was followed by vegan cake and rice pudding.
We continued to plan for an exhibition that will be taking place at Redwing Gallery, Penzance - just down the road from Breadline. This will run from 24th March until 7th April with an opening event on 24th March from 5.30 until 7.30pm. All welcome!
Now that lockdown is at last gradually lifting, we're looking back on the past year with a sense of achievement and a committment to a future together. Even when we couldn't meet, Roamers stayed in touch by way of our post card project (details here) -- we've posted most the them here. We shared paintings and drawings and photographs from Toby, Suzi, Jon and Not Just Any Girl. Keep an eye out for a new video soon with more details.
