• Sylvia Heterick discussed with us that she will arrange getting the current and next exhibitions mentioned on Bay FM. She also asks that members and tutors check the regular listing we have in the newspaper to make sure the details are correct.
  • Robin will get some photographs of the Mentorship Program students with their work at the front of Yurara to get into the local newspaper.


  • Entry forms for the “Black White & Red All Over” exhibition were sent out by Danielle Bain on 4 January, in the absence of a December Newsletter, to all members with e-mail access so that there was some preparation time for those who would like to exhibit. Only those three colours are to be used this time. No shades or tones.
  • A list of themes and dates for future upcoming exhibitions were read out by Gloria. They will be put up on the calendar whiteboard in the kitchen.
  • We discussed Helen sending out a copy of the roster to participating members so that they can fill in the blank roster times and return them to her so she can co-ordinate the times and make sure all times are covered. Members have done really well to cover all times so far except New Year’s Eve afternoon (understandable!) There are blank spaces on the afternoons of Saturday 14 & 21 Jan.

General Business:

  • There are some very loose planks on the front ramp and we discussed the need to have this assessed from a safety point of view.
  • On Sunday last, Robin Wilson & Cliff Eames replaced the failing florescent lights in the gallery. These are now modern, efficient LED tubes.
  • Some members are now attending informally to paint on Saturdays as well as Sundays.
  • Changeover date for the next exhibition is 23 January. Don’t forget to pick up your paintings and deliver with your entry forms and payment.
