Professor Anita Taylor, Dean of Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design at the University of Dundee was the judge at the Art Group's on-line private view (with 81 participants).
Maria Memoli, who has held a range of senior roles over the course of her career in local government, is the Art Group’s Exhibition Secretary.
She said: “The Group was set up all those years ago to show that solicitors weren't all that stuffy, and are approachable and sociable. The majority of the members are retired solicitors, but there are still a few of us that are still practising. Anyone can join that has a connection to the law, or a close family member.”
Memoli, one of whose pictures was 'highly commended', added: “There is life outside of law.....it's just finding what makes you happy, and just living for the now. That’s important; even more so now during lockdown."
