Our Spring Exhibition opens in just three weeks and our members are preparing their work for this final event for the year.

The opening will be on Friday evening October 4 at 6pm and our guest speaker is local MP Sandy Bolton. Sandy is a favourite in our local shire for her community spirit and caring nature. We are hoping that the bush fires have abated by then and the majority of our local residents are able to be back in their homes. Make a note in your diary to come along to hear Sandy and see the latest work from our members.

Many of the Creative Artists have had individual and joint exhibitions in other galleries during the year but now they are all displaying on one place.Creative Artists meet every Thursday afternoon in the Wattle gallery to share their skills and also creat together in our light airy space. 

This is the first year that the Chinese Brush Painting group have exhibited so we are all very excited to see their work. They meet every Tuesday afternoon in the Wattle Gallery and have learnt these new skills under the tutelage of Linda Thurmer who is an expert in this art.

The Botanical Artists are a well-established group – many members have been part of this group for up to fifteen years. Their work is so delicate and they are generous with newcomers wanting to learn the skill. 

Our Saturday morning Acrylics group has been together for a few years now. They now use Wattle Gallery too in the peace of the much quieter Saturday mornings – they began using Pandanus room on the ground floor. In the last couple of years, they have had the benefit of regular tuition from local artist Pam Taylor. They have all learnt a great deal with her and we are excited to see their latest work.

Oils and Acrylics group meets every Thursday morning in Wattle Gallery and have done so for many years. They have a wide range of skill levels and also use mixed media in their creations. They always have a broad range of subjects in their work and it’s fascination to see what they choose to paint each year.

Ceramics have had a mixed year this year as they have had to renovate the kiln shed and also some of the kilns. This has hindered some of their firing schedules. However, for the last few weeks, this has almost returned to normal and their works will be ready to display in three weeks time. We are anticipating some superb work now their shed and kilns are back in action.
