NOTICE: MTAS Gallery at Musson Lane Update

MTAS Gallery at Musson Lane Update

As you know, our MTAS Gallery at Musson Lane, which was open every Saturday, is currently closed until further notice due to the COVID 19 restrictions. The planned April 18th changeover will not happen.

Art and craft currently on display can remain until Saturday July 4th .

The fees that you have paid will cover you until then. (Hopefully the world will have returned to normal by then.)

If anyone would prefer to collect their art or craft prior to that, please contact a key holder – Sheila ph 0408161284 or Patty Bakarich 0415200446 (or other Committee member) to arrange a time when we can meet you to open up the building and mark the works off on the list.

Meanwhile your work will be safe, secure (and dusted) until we can open to the public again, when we will again ask for people to help on the Roster.

We are also looking at taking photographs of the works and posting them onto our site, Facebook and Instragram accounts to keep MTAS active as best we can during this time. We are looking at watermarking the artists work so that will cover any copyright issues. Stay tuned!

Keep safe and well everyone and stay creative.

Thank you,
MTAS Committee


NOTICE: MTAS Response to COVID-19

Dear Members,

No doubt you are all aware of the rapidly changing response to the COVID-19 pandemic. As a consequence of the stronger message from the Government and the Department of Health in trying to contain the spread of the disease, the committee have, sadly, decided to cancel upcoming events in the interests of your well-being and that of our community.

Wednesday Open Days at Musson Lane will not be scheduled after this week until further notice. The Saturday Gallery, which we had just started to get going, will be closed, effective from today until further notice. Our demonstrations for April and May are cancelled, although we have been fortunate to re-book Taryn Malzard for the July meeting – hopefully the world will have righted itself sufficiently by then!

The Children’s After School classes will not be held from next week and the Easter School Holiday Workshops are cancelled. Life Drawing and Portrait groups are cancelled for April.

Saddest perhaps of all we are cancelling our Autumn exhibition. We will instead make the Spring Affair exhibition a members award event.

I’m very sorry that we are taking this route but the committee feel a duty of care that demands these measures in the interests of yourselves and the community. We will try and keep the online presence active and interesting. If you have any contributions to make – stories, pictures of the work you would otherwise have entered into the Autumn exhibition, send them in to info@mtas.com.au

We will monitor the situation and advice of any further changes.

Keep safe and well.

Thank you,

Kym Morris (President) and the MTAS committee.

Reminder: Monthly Demonstration Meeting 10th March – Rae Woolnough – Textile Art

Reminding all of the
Monthly Demonstration Meeting 10th March
Rae Woolnough – Textile Art

We are excited to welcome Rae Woolnough demonstrating Textile Art on Tuesday, 10th March, 7:30pm at the Stan Stevens Studio in Windsor.

Come along to see this very beautiful, interesting and unique medium being demonstrated.

Rae Woolnough is a Textile Artist who specialises in the medium of felt.

Rae’s love of art and textiles has been a life long interest, from sewing her first garment at eight years of age to designing and making her own wedding dress, there has always been a connection with textiles and design.

Rae discovered felting fifteen years ago and since then has experimented and researched felt making, exploring new and different techniques and textural directions.

She prefers working with natural products such as fine merino wool, alpaca and silk and is on a constant quest to find beautiful and unique yarns to use as embellishments in her artworks.

Rae has exhibited her work through solo and group exhibitions in galleries throughout Australia.   Her artworks are held in collections throughout Australia and Internationally.

 You can see more of Rae’s work on Facebook:
https://www.facebook.com/FibreandFelt/

Both Members and Non Members are welcome to join us for our meetings to view an inspirational artist at work each month, as well as the opportunity to enjoy networking with like-minded art enthusiasts.

Entry is $5 for MTAS members and visitors (includes supper)

Please remember to park outside the car park due to early closure.
