The London Group Summer 2020 Newsletter
 
Welcome to the latest edition of The London Group newsletter.
 
Now 4 months into the lockdown, we've all had to adapt to these extraordinary times. Many of the articles here reflect changes in the Members' routines and practice and there are some intriguing, remarkable and moving stories. The London Group is nothing if not resilient. We'll hear how the cancellation of a physical show led Darren Nisbett LG to construct a virtual exphibition space for The Group which has become very popular; a third show is already being prepared. This is a time of new opportunities but also loss and reflection and we finish the newsletter with a personal tribute to Arthur Wilson and Janet Nathan.
