NEWSLETTER MAY 2019
Winter Art Show
Our Winter Art Show at the Woodend Bowling Club is fast approaching so please make sure to have your entry forms to reach us by Monday 27th May 2019 to enable time to have the catalogue printed. They can be posted to MRAG, PO Box 218, Lancefield 3435 or emailed. Preference would be to email entries to firstname.lastname@example.org rather than posting (as the post can be slow sometimes) and as soon as possible would be appreciated.
Friday 7th June will be set up day to deliver and hang paintings and will be open to the public from Saturday 8th till Monday 10th. Artwork to be delivered on Friday between 10am and 1pm.
Leianne Ivankovic and Joy O’Connor have offered to donate some art for the raffle prizes so a big thank you to you both. Grant and Kay from Feeling Framed have generously offered to frame Leianne’s watercolour for us, so a warm thank you too, it is much appreciated.
Some suggestions for workshops have included John Orlando Birt, Daniel Butterworth and Terry Jarvis. Further suggestions are most welcome so we can look into organising them for MRAG.
Duty Rosters and Volunteers
Duty Rosters for the show will be emailed shortly for the three days of the show so please indicate if you can volunteer for a morning or afternoon. We need assistance with the putting up of the stands and dismantling at the end of the show as well as volunteers on the front desk.
Also looking for someone to do a painting demo and any donations of cakes and slices for the show would be wonderful.
Social Painting Day
Our last Social painting day on Friday 17th May was well attended and very enjoyable in a relaxed atmosphere. It is growing and growing! We raffled a $25 voucher from Feeling Framed and the lucky recipient was Dorothy Theuma. Congratulations Dorothy! We expect to be having more vouchers to raffle in future with such good attendances.
There will not be a Social painting day on Friday 7th June as it is our set up day at the Woodend Bowling Club. The next Social Painting day will be Friday 21st June. Cost of $5 includes tea and coffee. Come along from 10.30am to 1.30pm. No need to book, just turn up.
