Gallery & Exhibitions:

Entries for the Landscape/Seascape Exhibition need to be delivered on Monday, March 5th; entry forms with roster details are available in the studio.

Yurara’s Autumn Exhibition will be an open theme – hope you’re working towards that event! Members can submit up to three paintings, which need to be in on Monday, April 16th.

Redland Art Gallery will hold the ‘In Focus’ small works exhibition at Capalaba Gallery from December 1st 2018 to January 28th, 2019, with the theme ‘Self Portrait’. This will be advertised as a celebration of the Redland Art Gallery 15th birthday, and is a significant exhibition. There’s plenty of lead time for our portraitists to prepare for that one! All artists can submit 2 works with a guarantee that one will be included. 

December 9th, 2018 to January 22nd, 2019 will see the Shore Birds installation, where 300+ shore birds will be displayed in a large scale installation in Redland Art Gallery (Cleveland galleries 2, 3, and 4), alongside Deb Mostert’s solo exhibition ‘Australian Future’. Deb will mentor local artists and Redland-based art groups in Shore Bird making workshops. 

For more information about these exciting opportunities, please contact Amy Wilson, Exhibitions and Public Programs Officer, on (07) 3829 8484 or email: amy.wilson@redland.qld.gov.au

General Business:

Thanks are due Karen Munster who is doing a great job of transferring our VHS cassettes to DVD format. Take the opportunity of borrowing any of the recordings for the princely sum of 20 cents per week. Both Karen and Jodi are working hard on the advertising for us, so kudos and thanks to them!

Gloria has been liaising with Philip, from Expolite, who will provide us with flags for the road and the front of the building, hopefully in time for the Autumn exhibition. He’s also interested in becoming a member.

There’ll be an “Art & Soul” afternoon at Redland Museum on March 4th , from 1.00 to 5.00pm with refreshments, music by Nuages Ensemble, an art exhibition and market tables. The exhibition will be up for two weekends until 12th  March. Art works will be size limited to one or two pieces per artist. Help will be needed to set up on Saturday 3rd  March. Sale tables will be $10 (bring your own table, chair, marquee, etc.) or $5 for hire of a rectangular table. Entry is $18 for Museum Members and $20 for visitors. Please contact Gloria or Robin soon if you are interested; entry forms have been left in the studio for those without computers.

We need another member to help with the Landscape/Seascape Exhibition on days that paintings are delivered, e.g., March 5th . There’s a lot of little chores on that day! As well as accepting submitted paintings, receipts need writing, numbers are allotted to paintings and noted on entry forms for the catalogue, members sign up for weekend roster, D-rings need checking, names and details checked on the back of paintings etc. etc. Arja and other members have been doing their best but a prearranged helper would be really appreciated. Please give it some thought if you have time!

We also need more light easels for the portraiture group. Ethel Bosher, one of our life members, will be contacting the Men’s Shed in Cleveland to see if they can rustle up a solution. Many thanks Ethel!
