The London Group Spring 2020 Newsletter
 
Welcome to the latest edition of The London Group newsletter. 
 
Lockdown 
 
There are more members than ever but we can't meet or exhibit. This newsletter provides one channel for the Group to keep communicating and we hope to hear from many more of you in future editions about your experiences in this extraordinary time. 
 
 
Message from Susan Haire PLG
 
I wish you all well in this troubling time. I dearly hope you are safe and comfortable. In one way we are lucky – making art has to be the best thing to be able to do in our isolation, both as being uplifting and giving succour while we do it but also affirming our belief in the integrity and richness of humanity in the face of this crisis. I hope this time passes quickly and members of The London Group family can gather again soon for our meetings and shows.
