OIR REMINDER

A HAPPY NEW YEAR

 

All the Committee join me in wishing you a Very Healthy and Happy 2022.


Our first Talk in 2022 is entitled “The Hunterian Art Gallery, Glasgow” and the Speaker is Dr Maureen Park, it will be delivered remotely, via Zoom, on Wednesday 5th January at 2 pm.
Glasgow’s Hunterian Art Gallery is tucked away within the grounds of Glasgow University. The original collection was formed by Dr William Hunter, the celebrated Scottish anatomist, but has expanded considerably over the years.
This talk will introduce you to the gallery’s wide-ranging collection, from old masters’ paintings by Rembrandt and Chardin to more modern paintings such as those by Glasgow Boy, James Paterson and Scottish Colourist, J D Fergusson. The remarkable collection of works by the American artist J A M Whistler and the celebrated architect and designer, Charles Rennie Mackintosh will also be featured.
The “clickable link” will be sent to all Members prior to the Talk.


COVID RESTRICTIONS
Regrettably, all our in-person meetings have been cancelled due to the re-imposition of the limit on the number of households who can meet indoors.
Group Leaders will keep their Group informed of the date on which Groups can recommence meeting indoors. Hopefully this will be towards the middle of January but of course this depends on what the First Minister announces on 11th January.
Please be assured that we will resume in-person meetings as soon as restrictions are lifted.


PROPOSED NEW UKULELE GROUP
Several requests have been received for a Ukulele Group to be set up.
It is planned to have a meeting, as soon as we are permitted, for those who have expressed an interest in playing the ukulele.
It is likely that this Group will be held on a Monday afternoon.
Further details will be sent to those who have registered their interest as there is now a waiting list.
If you would like to add your name to the waiting list, please call in the Office after it re-opens on Wednesday (10 am until noon, weekdays only), or e-mail your request to oir.largs@outlook.com
I look forward to seeing you on 5th January and yes, Membership did reach 700 by Christmas Day !


Sincerely,
Jean Stuart
Chairperson
