EXHIBITION

THE ANNUAL EXHIBITION has so far been a great success. We have had a good number of visitors each day and many paintings and cards have been sold. There have been many complimentary comments about the paintings and we've had a few people who are going to join us as new members.
The Exhibition was opened on Friday evening by Ray Barnes. As usual the room was crowded and we all enjoyed the occasion.
We would like to thank the Hanging Committee for putting the Exhibition together and Ann, Mary and Claire and husbands Mike and Bob for all the "extra bits" that are so important.
Everyone who attended the Preview Evening was asked to vote for their favourite best picture for the Reg Whiting Award. Reg was one of the founder members of the Society. This year we had joint winners of Di Alexander and Mary Maskell - congratulations to them both!

Adventurous Artists at Eling

DI'S REPORT:-

SKETCHING AT ELING QUAY
Jean, Sue, Ray and Di spent a peaceful hour sketching at Eling Quay on a sunny morning. Fortunately the rain held off until lunchtime. The Eling Experience cafe is now very smart and an enjoyable hour was spent discussing their own art, T.A.S. and the art scene generally. The sketching morning provides an opportunity not only to practice drawing but also to share experiences with fellow artists.
