One does not need to venture far to find intriguing themes and situations - you just need to look a little more attentively." 11].AGM Proposed venue in or around Beverley Art Gallery at a venue that Ali can arrange and provisionally fixed for Tuesday 9th of January 2007 at 7.30pm.

READ ON FOR MORE NEWS ITEMS WITHOUT DATE CONSTRAINTS Other News Evolution of ERA: You are probably unaware that during the last two professional selection processes, ERA has been asked to select community art work and has been unable to do so. This is not because community art is not recognised, but it has proved impossible to find the independent adjudicators to evaluate the work. At the associates summer show an art project was run as an exhibit, the evaluation of which gave overwhelming support from the visitors and members of ERA for community art to be a part of ERA. Another feature of this project involving visitor participation has led to the production of the logo for ERA community arts, with the invaluable help of Ian Mitchell. It has therefore been agreed during discussions by the committee that community artists of whom there are several both practising and qualified within the Era membership will comprise a separate category on the website. Whilst on the topic of community arts: Yorkshire Community Arts Forum, ( YCAF ) began life on Saturday 14th of October this year at Sam Pirt’s studio at Gilberdyke. So far, it got a name, a list of desirable needs that people have voiced and a loose structure as regards meetings/gatherings that incurs a session fee of £10. This is intended to cover costs for speakers, publicity, costs etc. It's a forum were people can come together and discuss, create and collaborate on needs and ideas, that might grow and develop into projects throughout the region - this covering Yorkshire and surrounding areas, as not to restrict its activities or artists.
