1 Sept 2017: Message from John Stacey

It is with sadness that I have to tell you that one of our members, Sue Cox, has recently died. It was quite sudden and unexpected.

She was the wife of Geoff, the former Camberley Librarian, and was a loyal member of the Society, regularly exhibiting at the Annual Exhibition. We will miss her bubbly personality.

Our thoughts are with Geoff and the family. John Stacey Membership Secretary
2 Nov 2015: Message from John Stacey

It is with sadness that we have to report the recent death of Joan Walsh; she was 96. Joan was a very keen member of the Society, exhibiting regularly at the Annual Exhibitions.

In 2008 she won The Seward Memorial Trophy (The People's Choice) with her enigmatic painting 'The Engagement'. She will be sadly missed.

Her funeral will be on Friday 13th November at Easthampstead Crematorium at 12 noon.

Hi. My name is Sara Byrne. I run a retirement complex in Camberley. I would be interested in having a demonstration of your work and, if possible, starting up a class once a week for the owners.
Is this something that could be arranged?
Thanks, Sara.

"The Brush with Art Group" at the Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice, Farnham, is looking for volunteers to help on a Monday afternoon from 1pm to 4:30pm with the group.

We do not teach: we help, show and encourage out-patients in the "Day Care Centre"

It is fun, enjoyable and very rewarding, in a friendly atmosphere with incredible people.

For more information please ring:

Hi Sam. Bob Roope has sent me the attached contribution for the next newsletter. I feel that it is sufficiently stimulating that it could usefully sit on the website. I know you are, like Bob, a great user of sketch books for capturing the moment and Bob's piece could be the "kick up the backside" that I and others like me need to use sketch books more.

I don't know how often you visit our External Contacts pages. I had a few minutes to relax over coffee this morning and looked again at the "Museum of Bad Art" in the Organisations Web Sites area. It's a great site I'd not visited for ages. You're missing out if you stick to the more obvious places.

I've had news from Liz Seward that Rosemary de Goede died in Frimley Park Hospital on 10th Nov. after a short illness.

Rosemary was a mainstay of the Society for many years. She was a very successful artist in terms of sales, a skilled potter and clay modeller, and lent her skills to the Society as an occasional workshop tutor. She was always prominent at exhibition time organising the handing-in and hanging of paintings and will be very sadly missed.

Message from Webmaster Sam Dauncey, 25 June 2011

I did a quick sketch last night and wrote a bit this morning.
Have a look. Why don't you send me a little vignette like this?

We are MCCH Aspirations. The service is based in Camberley, Surrey and has been set up to support people with mental health needs in the Surrey Heath area. MCCH has charitable status and we have connections to Surrey County Council. Typically, support is given for sport leisure, arts, craft and other activities. We are wondering whether or not some of the members might be interested in supervising Art sessions for our Service Users. This would be initially a one-off meeting to see if it is going to work for both parties. Then, if it looks viable, we would look at regular sessions as appropriate. The meeting could be at a church hall on the Old Dean. We already pay for this venue on Tuesdays.
Please contact us at MCCH Aspirations:
Telephone 01276 676581, Fax 01276 670403. E-mail: aspirations@mcch.org.uk
You can visit our website for more information about us on www.aspirationscamberley.com
We look forward to hearing from you.

Jonathan Bennett, our erstwhile membership secretary, whom I'm sure most of you remember very well, has published a book of his own poetry. Details and an order form can be downloaded here (24 kB pdf file).

Message from Webmaster

Please send more pictures:- your work, snaps from workshops, FCSA activities etc. (go to Submitting Pictures for the Gallery etc.).

Also reports and news of interesting exhibitions, fairs, artists and other web sites.


Please make use of your web site, http://www.fcsaonline.org.uk.
(a) It often contains information that appears too late for the newsletter and so which would be missed by anyone who did not look regularly at the notice board.
(b) The records of past meetings offer fascinating reading, tips etc. If you have written notes on a meeting or demo please let me,, have a copy a.s.a.p. The same applies if you did one in the past that I've not got.
(c) It gives links to galleries, artistic events, artists, demonstrators etc. TELL ME IF YOU KNOW OF ANYTHING I SHOULD ADD.
(d) It offers a free opportunity for members to publicise their work. MORE PAINTINGS AND SCULPTURES ARE URGENTLY REQUIRED - the site tells you how easy it is to submit work. Why have I no photo's of sculptures yet?
(e) The Contacts page ("Members' Messages") offers an easy way to let the Society know if you can think of ways its services may be improved. For example, should we have nude models (?) encourage more unusual media (?) have more (or less) demos (?) external visits (?) meetings in different locations (?) meetings with other clubs (?) etc. etc.
Thanks, Sam Dauncey

Any FCSA member wanting a message here should e-mail it to with "FCSA Message" as the Subject.

I shall censor each submission (possibly consulting the committee) - so there may be delay.
I may choose to incorporate suggestions directly.
I intend to forward constructive messages (see FCSA Contacts), but I may not reply to them.
