“From Paddock to Plate”

Our new exhibition Opened 31 May at Swan Hill Regional Art Gallery.  It will be on display until 28 July.


Workshops so far….

Collage: some really wonderful results from this one and some just haven’t stopped creating collage since! Di completed her piece and it featured in a recent exhibition in the Regional Art Gallery.


Helen Mac & Judy provided guidance for this 2 day workshop and there were some wonderful results. A big thank you to Sue for allowing the group to make a mess at her house!

Palette Knife This was a fun group activity on the first Tuesday in May and most of us had a go! Here are two examples Joy’s maggie with attitude and Kylie’s landscape, created using bits of cardboard as her palette knife!

Jon Lam 2 day workshop water effects

Day one challenged those of us unfamiliar with watercolours and their delicate possibilities and day 2 was filled with a huge range of work featuring reflections and semi abstracts. The group would love Jon to return next year.

Day 1 Glenys created figures in the rain & Sue , a rainy day at Flinders Street.

(sorry I didn’t take more pics of day 1)  Day 2 semi abstracts and lots of reflections.

Thanks to Jon Lam for sharing his knowledge and for inspiring us to try something new!
