Michael Galovic discusses his latest book, ICONS + Art
Michael Galovic has shown his artwork around the world.
Icons + Art was published in 2006 and features his work from 1990 to 2006. He has a studio/gallery on the Central Coast.
He began absorbing the ancient tradition of iconography as a child and started painting icons in his late teens parallely with his studies at the Belgrade Academy of Arts. Today, Michael Galovic engages himself
in a few parallel directions: traditional icons, contemporary religious and non religious art.
See an exerpt from his book at the end of this newsletter. open to members and non-members. Entry fee $5.00
Raffle Winner – Michael Daly
I have had 6 weeks off from CCAS duties, so
now’s back to work.
I want to thank everyone who worked so hard
to make our Winter Exhibition come together.
With quite a number of the committee unavailable,
many thanks to members who obliged and
worked extra roster shifts. We only sold 2 framed
paintings, some jewellery and cards, but weather
conditions didn’t help.
The raffle was won by Michael Daly, congratulations
Michael, Many thanks to Gwynneth Boyce
for donating the pastel work and Christies Picture
Framing for framing the pastel.
The People’s Choice was won by Marlene Palagyi
for her watercolour “Snow Owl”, congratulations
Marlene. (as Featured above)
