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)

Brooklyn, in lieu of our Come, Listen, Talk meeting

off date for booking and payment is 7th September.
Once again the Combined Art Societies of Sydney
are organising the Art Direct Open Studios Art
Trail taking place throughout the month of October.
A few members have participated in this in
previous years, opening their studios to the public.
This year the opportunity to hire the Davistown
Progress Hall has risen and details are yet to be
If arrangements work out, we are looking at the
weekend of 13th – 14th October. If you are interested
in participating, we could have a very nice
display as a group of CCAS members.
We will need to register by 31st August, so
could you let me know by 10th August 2018 on
0407 448 574 if you would like to get involved.
