Doncaster is around where the East Midlands Region ends and the Yorkshire region starts, but it is actually an easier drive for me from my home than Whatton is, which is where EM meets, such is how regions divide.
So, today I took a 40 minute drive to The Point at Doncaster to meet up with members of The RPS Visual Art Group who had traveled from all over England to the opening of their exhibition at the marvelous venue.
The vice chair of the group David Wood ARPS traveled up from London to start things off, and
then he introduced scarf wearing (I want one too) Mark Slater who is the regional organiser of Yorkshire, who then officially opened the exhibition.
There was lots of tea and coffee drinking
and cake too
the coffee never ran out
or picture taking
but of course we were really there to look at photographs
which were amazing and looked superb in the gallery (whoops, I've played with this image in photoshop (sorry VA)
Locals were happy to pose with the art
and seemed highly impressed
some scratched their heads
and others wanted to know who had taken what
and then had lunch, still smiling
before heading home, already talking about the next venue, which is in East Midlands region next year :)
The exhibition is on until 21st December click here for more details
