Winchester Art Club Chris Prior Apple Day, oil on board over a grisaille underpainting, 291⁄2x231⁄2in. (75x60cm). The Winchester Art Club was founded in 1919, and members meet on Saturday afternoons, 2.30 to 5pm at All Saints Hall, Petersfield Road, Winchester, for a full programme of events. For more information telephone the club secretary on 01489 235644; email; or visit
The Post Office & BT Art Club Jan Preston Ron McGill, pastel, 20x18in. (51x46cm). Jan’s pastel painting features the Post Office & BT Art Club’s vice chairman and exhibition organiser, Ron McGill. Self-effacing Ron explains that he was unaware that he was the subject of Jan’s portrait, which took six months to complete, and was even more surprised when the painting was voted the public’s favourite at the recent exhibition. The Post Office & BT Art Club was founded in 1906 to show work by staff employed by the then Post Office organisation, drawing members from across the UK and abroad.
