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.

 

About Virginia Wheatley:

Virginia Wheatley works using different medium and styles. Her studio, Blue Toucan Art is located in Kurrajong village, where she enjoys the peaceful and amazing views of the Kurrajong foothills.

Her paintings can be found around Australia and abroad, and is a regular exhibitor at the Macquarie Towns Art Society.

More Info:

This demonstration will be limited to 25 people including the committee. The committee meeting will be held in the Tebbutt Room at 5.45pm and demonstration will be in the Stan Stevens Studio from 7.30pm.
