MTAS Survey for New Premises

Important Notice for All MTAS Members

Dear Members,

At some point during 2022 it will be necessary for MTAS to relocate from it’s current premises at Musson Lane.

We have a sub-committee looking for alternate properties and to ensure we do our best to obtain premises that cater for our ongoing needs, we have formulated 5 important questions for members to answer.

These questions relate only to activities to be undertaken within our new premises and all other current activities, shows, exhibitions undertaken by MTAS remain as is.

Please click this link to fill out the Survey:

If you would like to offer any further ideas or have any questions please email info@mtas.com.au

Thank you,

Your MTAS Committee

MTAS Monthly Demonstration Meeting
Carol Gill – 8th February 2022

Please use this link – https://us02web.zoom.us/j/87615983143

Please register your attendance by email to info@mtas.com.au.

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

About Carol Gill:

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.

We look forward to seeing you there!
