Sunrise Rotary Producers Market

Three members promoted our group at this market it was quite hot by mid-morning but the paintings looked great and we had a lovely morning talking to many visitors and locals.

“Earth Connections”

Every two years we have our exhibition at the access gallery all financial members are able to exhibit. The title was decided at the annual meeting and at this stage Ian Tully has been in touch with me about the timing of our exhibition, it will be held in February 2017, a bit later than planned originally but will at this stage run with an exhibition promoting local works in the gallery collection.  Please work towards this event so we can showcase our work. I will be looking for a piece of work to head our invitations and the advertising that the gallery does. Contact Judy (0448918771) if you have something for consideration.

Events coming up during February and March are:

  • April: Marian’s workshop 12th and 26th April
  • May: Join us at the Murray River Motel.
