Gallery & Exhibitions:
At the Redland Art Gallery opened on Friday, December 1st and continues through to January 14th.
Although there were a few hiccups with the entry process and invitations, as well as during the opening night speeches, the gallery looked terrific on the night! Lessons have been learned for our next event – thank you to everyone for your patience and ideas about how we can improve. Gloria and Robin also gave ‘talks from the floor’ on Sunday 3rd, which were well attended by the public as well as a group from Logan Art Gallery. Gloria spoke about the meaning behind ‘Connections’, and Robin spread the good word about Yurara’s activities.
The ‘Holiday Collection’ exhibition opened on December 15th and extends
till the end of January. Yurara is keen to expand our offerings at these events through smaller works such as cards, notebooks, and prints on card backing. For those of you who haven’t tried this form of art marketing, have a look at the website www.redbubble.com and similar sites that provide marketing options for artists.
✔ Gloria is asking for members’ help to belong to a "Hanging Group", hanging paintings that is!. Our next rotating exhibition will be installed on January
29th and the process would be much quicker with your assistance. The same two or three people have been doing it for some time and can provide you with direction. Responsibilities include: passing wires and handing paintings to the installers and placing numbers on the walls. If you’d like to help, please contact Gloria on: 32864086 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
✔ Yurara’s publicity people are busy preparing flyers to raise community awareness about Yurara and help increase attendance numbers. Many people may not know that the gallery is wheelchair friendly and the surroundings are a pleasant spot for a weekend outing.
✔ Our November mini-market was great fun for those who came along, despite some stiff competition from other events at Cleveland and Victoria Point. Thanks to all members for the range of works available, including paintings, lino-cuts, stationery, pottery, baked goods, textiles, plants and other items. And thanks again to Jason for the lovely Devonshire tea!
