DWT – AGM UPDATE

The AGM of the David Waterson Trust (DWT) was held in Brechin last week when two new trustees, Alex Craig and Karen Hamilton were welcomed; current office bearers were re-elected

The DWT web site www.davidwaterson.co.uk that includes historical narratives and virtual gallery of a huge collection of many of David Waterson’s works continues to attract considerable interest.

DWT treasurer Mike Mitchell provided an updated list of paintings in the trust’s ownership including a recent purchase of an oil portrait of a young boy “Graham” and a recent donation of over 40 paintings which we hope to display in April 2014 to commemorate 60 years since David Waterson’s passing

David Waterson’s 500 poems, transcribed by trustee Frieda Haggart, has been placed into 12 categories by trustee Ken MacAskill under the headings of Brechin, Melancholy, Metaphysical, Mythological, Nature, Passage of time, Romance, Scots, Sundries and Supernatural

It was agreed, after several recent discussions with Norman Atkinson of Angus Council, that hard copies of the poems would be placed in folders representing the various categories and copies left in the Library and Town House Museum

The David Waterson Memorial Collection (DWMC), as previously confirmed, has been finally recognised, it is hoped that a coloured brochure will be produced and a rededication of the DWMC made to the people of Brechin by Ken MacAskill and others of his family who are closely related to David Waterson

The chairman voiced thanks to Messrs Savills for the use of their boardroom and to Councillor Mairi Evans for taking the time to show trustees around the old Council Chambers in Panmure Street
