PaverPol

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!

First Tuesday in March – Fixer Upper!

Do you have a “Fixer Upper” lurking in your collection of paintings?

Colour, tone , proportion, shading, perspective …we have all had our battles!

Do you want some friendly feedback and advice?

The First Tuesday 5th March is our “Fixer Upper” workshop.

Bring along a painting or two that you are not happy with or that you have left unfinished and as a group we will help each other out!

Below is an example of an unfinished work in desperate need of some advice!  Now if only I can remember where I put it I will bring it along.

January News

Welcome to 2019!

blur bokeh bright burnt

We hope everyone has had a lovely break over Christmas & New year!

The first day back at the Motel is tomorrow 15 January.  It’s going to be a hot one and we also have a birthday celebration !

The executive met last week and worked out some dates for our First Tuesday workshops and looked at some other weekend workshop ideas.

The Mothers Day exhibition at the library has been cancelled due to it clashing with the Swan Hill Regional Art Gallery Exhibition.

Have you paid your membership for 2019?

 

May to July Exhibition @ Swan Hill Regional Art Gallery

“From Paddock to Pleasure”

Exhibition Opening 31 May  – 28 July 2019

One artwork per person will be displayed.

Artworks to be delivered by 26 May (unless prior arrangements have been made with the gallery)

Artworks to be picked up in the week 29 July to 2 August

The pleasures of food are many and complex…..extending far beyond the kitchen table. From cultivation of the land and the sowing of seeds, the harvest, the catch and the kill, the aroma of baking , a pot simmering on the stove.  Food production, preparation and dining are represented here in a selection of paintings that reference the age old  visual arts tradition of still life.

Paverpol Workshop

Paverpol is a much sought after fabric hardener that was developed by a group of artists in the Netherlands. Artists and hobbyists have been using it for over 15 years and love its versatility. It is weatherproof and adhesive and becomes rock hard when dry. Paverpol can be used to make all sorts of materials rock hard. Porous materials such as textiles, paper, chamois leather, fiberglass, self-hardening clay and all kinds of natural materials are ideal. It will adhere to wood, ceramics, plaster, concrete, stone. You can make figurines, wire figurines, garden statues, dolls, sculptures and many, many other decorations.

This workshop will be held over 2 days with day 1 being preparation of the wire structure and day 2 at Sue’s attaching this to your support and then applying the Paverpol.

Materials will be supplied but if you have old lace and other suitable fabrics please bring them along.  Helen Mac & Judy will be providing guidance on the days and an information leaflet will be provided.

Free to MASH Members!  

Limit of 10 people.
