JUNE MEETING UPDATE

Gallery & Exhibitions:

Current exhibition on display “Nostalgia” started 29th June to 27th July.

Redland Art Gallery will hold the ‘In Focus’ small works exhibition at Capalaba Gallery from December 1st 2018 to January 28th, 2019, with the theme ‘Self Portrait’. This will be advertised as a celebration of the Redland Art Gallery 15th birthday, and is a significant exhibition. There’s plenty of lead time for our portraitists to prepare for that one! All artists can submit 2 works with a guarantee that one will be included. For more information about this exciting opportunity, please contact Amy Wilson, Exhibitions and Public Programs Officer, on (07) 3829 8484 or email: amy.wilson@redland.qld.gov.au

General Business:

  • Our mini market was a success with over 35 visitors and most members sold an item or two. Kathryn Christensen’s mini muffins were to die for. A general agreement was reached that two Mini-Markets a year should occur with the first just prior to Mothers-Day and the second some time in November/December.
  • Warning: There appear to be some email problems with suspicious or nonsense request messages supposed to be from members and friends. It was suggested that by hovering your mouse/pointer over the sender should identify who the sender really is. Ignore and delete these messages and do not click on or open any attachments. Please ensure your computer security and protection programs are up to date.
  • Congratulations to Julia Knox who is People’s Choice for the Autumn exhibition.
  • There will be no Newsletter this month due to Andrea’s absence.
  • The Redland Creative Alliance entry forms need to be in by 21st of this month and up to three works at the RPAC. Opening will be Thursday 19th July 6.30-8pm and closes on Friday 27th August
  • Gloria will be applying for a grant to buy 50 metal chairs to replace the plastic ones and some new tables.
