NEXT MEETING: WEDNESDAY 23 JUNE 2021
FENCIBLE LOUNGE, UXBRIDGE RD, HOWICK (NEXT TO THE HOWICK LIBRARY).
At our next club night, we will be having a visit from Pieter Meiring. He is the curator for The Art Lounge
gallery in Howick. We thought it would be great to get some feedback from a gallery’s point of view. He
will be discussing how to present a portfolio to a gallery, pricing of work and use of paint. I’m really
looking forward to his talk and I hope to see you there. You can learn more about The Art Lounge at
Your committee are working in the background getting things ready for our upcoming Midwinter
Exhibition. A bit like ducks on the water: all calm and serene above and paddling like mad underneath!
I am very excited about a unique addition to our exhibition this year – we will be hosting twice daily art
demonstrations by some generous volunteers. We hope this will draw more of the public to the show
to see your beautiful art, and hopefully more sales! Thank you Merv, Janice, Pat, John, Keith, Amanda
and Liz for stepping up.
Speaking of the Midwinter Exhibition, a reminder that entries close Sunday, 4th July. No entries will be
accepted after this date. We will also be needing lots of volunteers to do duty at the exhibition. There is
a roster at the Cottage, which will also be brought to club night. This is a great time for working
members to get involved.
