APRIL MEETING UPDATE

General Business:

  • We said farewell to Corinne Colombo this past month and some will keep in touch via Facebook and Skype. We shall miss her.
  • Banners: The new YYAA banner is hung up outside until Cliff has more hooks to hang our Yurara banner. We propose to have another one printed, brighter than the current banners, to hang down near the netball courts.
  • Probus: Gloria, as President of Yurara, has been invited to talk at a Probus meeting at the Redlands Sporting Club at Wellington Point.
  • Red Arts Donation: Their donation for last year’s YYAA was missed because of an admin oversight so they are very kindly going to double their contribution this year.
  • OzArt Finder: Gloria received a request to put our group up on this website with profiles of our members and examples of their art for sale. No commission is taken. If you would like to be represented please contact Gloria to organise a photo and send her photos of a few of your works. If you would like to have a look, once you get onto the Home page click on Groups, then Members. There is a separate part of the website where they offer individual artists a place to sell their work. A commission is taken from those.

Members Classes:

  • Monday Portrait Group - Sylvia Heterick Portrait class continues to be very well attended and new members are attending.
  • Thursday Plein Air Group - Val Turner for Nancy Read & Heather Bowskill The group had a delightful trip over to Coochie last week. Despite the rain we all really enjoyed the morning, especially catching up for morning tea with one of our previous members. We will try and go over more often. Two members have sustained broken arms. We hope they are healing well and look forward to seeing them back soon.
  • Life Drawing Group - Robin Wilson The class has had a few weeks cancelled due to weather and holidays and will start again on Fri 21 Apr.
  • Sunday Group Continues to be well attended by our Youth Awards artists and working members who cannot attend through the week

    We are gradually getting more people coming through the gallery. Don’t forget to put in your People’s Choice as the winner will receive a small award at the rolling exhibitions from now on.
