There is a lovely story of a woman who posted her painting, thinking that no one would like it. The picture then evolved over a period of time - artists painting pictures of other artists work.

The Winners of The Belle Kilgour Memorial Trophy presented by Douglas Ramsay, past Chairman of the Corstorphine Trust and The Earle Douglas Award presented by Anne Douglas, daughter-in-law of Earle Douglas
The Belle Kilgour Memorial Trophy was awarded to Sheila Paton for her painting 'Twitcher'. This painting was also used on the flyers that were used to promote this years art exhibition.
The Earle Douglas Award was presented to Neil Wilson for his painting 'Stare of the Tiger'
Damian Callan (a local artist who lives and works in Edinburgh) was invited to carry out a critique of members' artwork.
Each painting is sat in front of the audience and discussed in detail. This is an opportunity for a professional artist to share their experience and thoughts.
The painting for this year's art exhibition flyer was also chosen and this will be announced at a later date.
Thank you Damian
