It has been said before here that we always look forward to seeing Tom Seaton’s entries in our competitions but last night (20 Oct)  he excelled himself with two section
wins and a further 3rd place! Above is the beautifully serene Arcade, which won the monochrome section. Tom has plied a straight furrow to perfection, he has always
been attracted by architectural features, especially in mono. His eye unfailingly picks out form and his prints render them perfectly. GALLERY for PRINT 1 2017

NEXT MEETING: Thursday 27 October 7:30 for 7:45pm
