The Society now has an effective sound system,
which has been in use for several months,
and has been found to be a great help to
everyone who formerly had problems hearing the speaker.
This was obtained through a grant from the Big Lottery Fund, for which we are grateful.
Fred Ambrose has a painting hanging in Ongar Library.
When Ongar Library was built in 1993, Fred had a
chat with the builder, and took some photographs and sketches of the scaffolding and heaps of bricks, and was in fact given a brick so as to get the right colour.
Fred painted a picture, and they were pleased when he kindly donated it to them.
This week it has been hung in Ongar Library, and it will get a mention in the Ongar News.
Next time you visit Ongar, take time to go into the library and see Fred's painting.
Once through the doors, look at the wall on the left above the staff room door.

Ongar Art Society
Summer Exhibition 2017
The winner of the
"Public's Favourite" Competition was
with Birch Forest.
Next Meeting: May 10th
The A.G.M. will be followed by
a Watercolour Landscape demonstration
by James Marriott.
James Merriott has been painting watercolours for over 35 years. He has had a love of art all his life and from a very early age was inspired by his uncle, Jack Merriott RI (1901-1968).
The basis of James' watercolours is simplicity and he demands of himself speed of execution to obtain results. He depends on visiting the subjects he depicts, and wherever possible, paints from life.
James is the regular featured artist in Essex Life and Hertfordshire Life magazines, and many of James' paintings have been reproduced as greetings cards, and he has published two books.
