Summer social evening

Every year the Shropshire Art Society holds a Summer Social evening for members and their guests with a supper and entertainment. These evenings are a lovely way to socialise with other Shropshire artists in a relaxed atmosphere.

Jet Rotmans was our 2016 Summer Social speaker

This year’s (2016) Annual Summer Social was held on Friday 22nd July at the attractive Trinity Centre, Meole Brace. Alan Townsend reports, “On a warm, if slightly damp, summer evening, nearly 50 members and friends enjoyed a lively talk given by the Dutch Artist and writer, Jet Rotmans. Well known in Zutphen, our twin city, and throughout Holland and beyond, Jet entertained us with a lively, well illustrated account of her work and life as an artist. This was followed by an excellent buffet meal provided as usual by Sue Rogers Catering, after which Jet answered questions from the audience. A very enjoyable occasion. Thank you Jet!”

Jet has exhibited her work in her regional district of Guelderland as well as in centres across The Netherlands and further afield in Switzerland, Sweden and Denmark. Most recently she has had successful exhibitions of her work in the Music Hall Museum and Gallery, Shrewsbury, as well as in the Gallery at Ludlow Library. An excellent photographer and lively speaker, Jet has, in the course of researching for her exhibitions, thoroughly explored and come to love our town and county. Following the launch of her Music Hall Exhibition, she gave a very well received illustrated talk to the Friends of the Music Hall.
