Exhibition 2009

Bugbrooke Art Group held their annual exhibition in the Community Centre on the 9th and 10th May. As usual, it was well attended with a steady flow of visitors over the two days. There were nearly a hundred pictures on display, all produced over the last year by the eight members of the group. Hand painted cards were also on sale and proved to be very popular.

A new feature this year was the competition to match the Beatles song title with a picture by each of the artists. A previous member, Jenny Unwin submitted a picture by e-mail to bring the number in the competition up to nine. No-one managed to identify all nine songs correctly, but three people identified eight out of the nine. Unfortunately two of these made the same mistake over one of the titles. - “I wanna hold your hand” is not on the label of the 1963 single and only scored ½ a mark – sorry. 

The correct answers were :- 

Barbara            “Lady Madonna”       

Elizabeth            “Michelle” (it was Michelle Obama)

Jean                “I am the walrus”     

Jenny               “She's leaving home”

Margaret            “Back in the U.S.S.R.”        

Sue                  “Long tall Sally” (the clue was the “S” on necklace and her long legs) 

Alan                 “Lucy in the sky with diamonds”      

Dave                “Day tripper” (many suggested it was “Ticket to Ride”) 

Jim                  “I want to hold your hand” 

Congratulations to Sheila Willmore, the winner of the bottle of wine, with eight exactly correct answers.
