JULY MEETING UPDATE

Gallery & Exhibitions:

  • People’s Choice winner for the “Figurative” exhibition was Georgie Usher. Congratulations Georgie.
  • Gloria has tidied the desk and drawers in the Gallery. Please leave the books in the drawers. Only the plastic stand for the forms, the roster, and the current exhibition catalogues are to be on the desk.
  • People on roster at the gallery please note that the flags have a metal “bayonet” to hold them properly. This is in the box where they are stored in the storeroom. Please place the bayonet in the hole and slide the flag over the metal upright.
  • A painting was  sold from the “Nostalgia” exhibition.
  • The Still Life” exhibition finishes on Thursday 23 August (altered date from original list) and paintings must be collected by then as Kat Christensen, Georgie Usher and Karen Munster will have a combined exhibition “We Three” from Friday 24 August (Opening Night) through to Sunday 2 September (one week).
  • Spring Exhibition - Open theme delivery date is Mon 3 September. Two paintings per artist permitted. Opening night is Friday 7 September. This is a judged exhibition with 1st, 2nd and 3rd prizes will be awarded and certificates for Highly Commended & Commended.

General Business:

  • Mary Kirkby has been made a Life Member. Congratulations Mary and thanks for all the years of supporting Redland Yurara and continuing to participate in our activities.
  • Our next Mini Market is set for Sunday 25 Nov.
  • Gloria has applied for a grant for new metal chairs to replace the plastic chairs due to safety issues.
  • Members are exhibiting at Aspire Gallery’s exhibition “Printmaking” at 53 Kennedy Tce Paddington from 18-28 July.
  • A discussion was held regarding the proposed “Imitating the Masters Old and New” exhibition for 2019 at Redland Gallery. Members discussed their interpretation of the theme and Redland Gallery’s proposal to run it as a mentored exhibition with a tutor of their choosing. Considering several of our members are, or have been, tutors themselves and Yurara is a teaching place in its own right as well as a space for experienced artists to work, we are not sure that this approach is right for Yurara. One of the reasons is that most members attend at least two sessions a week with Members’ Groups and classes and may find it difficult to find the time to attend an extra class with another tutor. We agreed that Robin and Gloria should meet with Gallery staff to discuss a revised proposal with a revised title, perhaps using the word “interpreting” or “homage” rather than “imitating”.
  • We have been offered a prize for a raffle at our Spring Exhibition and invite donations of more small prizes so we might have multiple draws.
