“I’m delighted to be handing on the presidency to Peter and Sarah who have both been at the heart of things at the New English throughout my term. I know they will do a fantastic job and hope they’ll have as enjoyable time as I’ve had. It’s been a huge privilege to have the opportunity to work for our members, and for an organisation which has a unique place in British art.” Richard Pikesley
”I was thrilled to be elected in 1998 to join this incredible body of talented painters from whom I learn so much year on year. There is a true spirit of camaraderie and mutual respect within the club and I am extremely moved to be elected president alongside Sarah. Thanks to Richard and all his predecessors, the club is in great shape and we – the whole membership – are ready to take on the challenge of extending our reach and cementing the New English Art Club’s future in British painting.” Peter Brown
“The New English has always had a strong and core female presence both in its membership and its committee, and it is one of the many qualities of the club that I cherish. I’m honoured to have the opportunity to take on this more visible role and responsibility within the club. Richard is a tough presidential act to follow, but I’m looking forward to working with Pete to rise to the challenge.” Sarah Spencer
