Our next exhibition will be a fundraising project for the arts complex, titled Exquisite and Exotic Fabrics & Fibres. The works are part of a private collection and will not be for sale. Exhibition Date - Sunday 17th June to Sunday 1st July. $5 entry per adult, Children under 13 yrs $2. Opening - Tony Spinks, President of the Redland Museum will open the exhibition at 2 pm on Sunday 17th. Opening day will include afternoon tea and Live mellow background music by Tommy B.
Assistance with preparation and serving of afternoon tea will be required so please watch this space for information on how you can help. Details are yet to be determined.
Members, please collect your works from the Gallery on either Sunday 10th June 3-4pm or Monday 11th June 10am- 12pm. The present exhibition plus any changes you may like to make will be rehung on Monday 2nd and Tuesday 3rd July ready for opening again as our Continuing Exhibition on Wednesday. Remember that our Annual By The Bay Exhibition will be opening on the 28th September so if you need to, keep any new work for that.
At present I am negotiating a private exhibition which will most likely be held for two weeks before our ‘By The Bay’.
It will be busy times for both members and Gallery staff but also exciting and beneficial for our complex!! Please put your names on the roster board for sitting the Gallery. New members will be trained by the lovely Jan and Evelyn.
