This is a reminder and update for the September Art Challenge!

You can make any kind of art you like that encapsulates the Hawkesbury theme or something relating to the Hawkesbury and are welcome to use physical or digital mediums for the art you create.
This is a challenge for your own work and artistic sensibilities not a replication inspired by another artist’s work as in August’s challenge.

We will post any that are emailed for everyone to enjoy and see as well 🙂

Submissions for the challenge will close September 30th 2021.

Let’s get creative and have fun.

Reminder: MTAS Demo Meeting — 10th August 2021: Joe Cartwright and Watercolours

Reminder: MTAS Monthly Demonstration Meeting
Tuesday 10th Aug 2021 7.30pm
Joe Cartwright ‘Waterscape’ in Watercolours

This is a reminder for Joe Cartwright’s Demo, please register your attendance.

We are very lucky to have one of our brilliant members Joe Cartwright as our next demonstrating artist on Tuesday 10th August.

With the uncertainty of lock down and safety in NSW we have decided to deliver the coming meeting via Zoom only for August and hope that face to face can return for our September Meeting.

Since the start of the pandemic Joe has revolutionised how he teaches his classes using only Zoom now as his delivery method. He has honed his skills to be able to deliver to students not only in Australia, but all over the world, on a regular weekly basis. (For more info about Joe’s classes on his website you can click here)

Joe has very kindly agreed to give us the demo directly from his studio with his excellent setup via Zoom and we are excited to see this in action.

The demonstration will be at the same time as our Monthly Meeting would usually be – 10th of August at 7.30pm and go until approximately 9pm. We will have the usual few announcements at the start from Committee, Joe will demonstrate and people can also ask questions during and at the end of the demo.

Joe is exceptionally skilled in Watercolours and will be doing a ‘Waterscape’ for us on the night.

MTAS has decided to give this demonstration to members and their guests without the usual door entry fee of $5, so we need you to please register your attendance well in advance to be sent the link to your email to be able to attend and be admitted to the Zoom session.

You MUST register to attend by emailing info@mtas.com.au

Please try to register by the end of August 8th so that we have time to send you out your link and we know who will be attending.

If you need assistance setting up Zoom on your computer or your mobile device you can also ask Satya on 0405 337 652.

For inquiries about this demonstration phone Annmaree 0429 234 873
Look forward to seeing you there!

Reminding all that members of the community are warmly welcomed to attend Friends of the Hawkesbury Art Community & Regional Gallery Inc Exhibition ‘Quilt – Art:  a new concept’ on 12th-13th June for an opportunity to view the talents of an unrecognised local textile artisan whose work will hang together with other artist’s images inspired by the colour palettes of the textiles.
