Workshops for 2018

Paint Pouring (in house)
with Lorri Lambert and Helen Porteus

2018 pour5

This was a fun and very expressive way to share our creativity.

Lorri and Helen shared their skills and techniques including recipes to take home and experiment with.  Members were able to create between 2 and 4 small pieces each learning about basic pours, the swipe and a dirty pour.

Different mediums were trialled including PVA & water, Floetrol and paint plus some combinations of the above.  Silicone oil was added to some colours and there was much excitement as “cells” began to appear.

For a .pdf copy of the notes please email Lorri.

 

Expressive Art Workshop with Paul Oswin

 

Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th March.
Art & Soul Gallery, Chapman St Swan Hill.
10am to 3pm each day (approx finish time)

Members $90 Non Members $110.

Upcoming Exhibition “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 am still looking for a piece of work to head our invitations and the advertising that the gallery does, I need this by mid October. Contact Judy (0448918771) if you have something for consideration.
