MTAS Monthly Demo Meeting, 8th September – Virginia Wheatley

Monthly Demonstration Meeting 8th September
Virginia Wheatley – Mixed media

We are delighted to have Virginia Wheatley demonstrating Mixed Media on Tuesday, 8th September, 7:30pm at the Stan Stevens Studio in Windsor. Come along or join us online to see this very beautiful and interesting medium being demonstrated.  With Covidsafe practises in place this demo will have a limit of 25 attending so please make sure you register your attendance here: info@mtas.com.au

We will also have it on Zoom and our social channels for those who can’t attend the venue. See bottom of this post for more info on our channels.

Regarding our AGM:

This meeting will replace our usual Annual General Meeting that we would normally have at this time.

The world continues to see change in the way we work, our participation in the community and events.

NSW Fair Trading has, in recognition of the current circumstances, made provision for societies such as ours to choose to not hold an Annual General Meeting in 2020, and so we will defer until 2021.

This is provided the financial statement for 2020 is completed and is, along with the 2021 statement, presented at the 2021 AGM.

The MTAS committee has elected to postpone the 2020 AGM accordingly and, fortunately, our committee has kept their hands up for another year. If however during this time any committee member discontinues in their position, a call will go out for volunteers to assist until the AGM takes place.

Please join me in thanking the committee for their diligence and commitment to keep MTAS going through such difficult times.

The NSW Fair Trading information can be found at www.fairtrading.nsw.gov.au

So at 7.30pm Viriginia will demonstrate a variety of mixed media techniques, including “having fun with yupo”. Learn how to revive and add excitement to those watercolours you filed away.

You can also add imagery to them by lifting off and collaging on vibrant paintings from yupo (brilliant white synthetic paper); lifting off newsprint and photographs, or adding prints – or do all three.

You can even incorporate “found objects” such as pressed flowers and leaves.

Reminder: Monthly Demonstration Meeting 8th October – Carol Gill – Mixed Media Collage

Reminder: Monthly Demonstration Meeting 8th October
Carol Gill – Mixed Media Collage

A reminder that we have Carol Gill with us to demonstrate Mixed Media Collage at our next monthly meeting on Tuesday, 8th October, 7:30pm at the Stan Stevens Studio, Deerubbin Centre, George St, Windsor.

Carol began her art career as a Graphic Designer spending her early years in advertising. Developing her art practise in this era meant the icons of the 70s-80s like Brett Whitely, Ken Done and Jenny Kee also heavily influenced her art.

In later years she rediscovered her art through further study and workshops where she was introduced to mixed media and collage by Judith White.

Carol uses a wide range of traditional Korean mulberry papers or “hanji”, tissue papers, water colours and gouache and loves the way they respond and react with one another.

She’s captivated by the textures and organic materials of the hanji papers and their relationship to the natural landscape from which they have been sourced. She enjoys bringing the beautifully delicate yet strong qualities of hanji to a very contemporary Australian theme.

To see more of Carol’s work visit www.carolgillgraphics.com.
