The Exhibition also featured a retrospective of work by Barbara Priest, a talented watercolour artist and much missed member of Hallam Art Group, who died suddenly in May 2019.

October 2019 A Talk on Perspective Hallam Art Group member, John Abel, used diagrams and examples of the work of past and current artists to deliver a light-hearted Power Point presentation on the laws of perspective. The session was much enjoyed by the members.

October 2019 Workshop on Decorative Architecture Members were invited to collect a variety of images of architectural details and to create a photomontage using some of the ideas presented by artist Pam Smart in her demonstration of Adventurous Architecture.

September 2019 Adventurous Architecture Artist Pam Smart demonstrated a lively approach to Decorative Architecture by creating a mixed media montage based on her sketches of doors, domes, arches and windows. A variety of techniques such as block painting in watercolour, collage and stencilling were used to produce innovative and unpredictable results. Her presentation was much enjoyed by the members and some expressed an interest in developing the ideas for themselves.
