Thank you everyone for working so hard on the Winter Exhibition, especially the men. The hanging was a bit tight, but finally every piece of work found its place.
The Opening Night was fantastic with Stephen Clarke, the Town Crier, making it a night to remember. The change of area for the food worked very well, so we will keep that set-up for future exhibitions. We presented a very inviting supper, thanks everyone for your contribution; many thanks to Marian Semmens, who in Marlene’s absence, did a great job on the night, having taken on the role of Social Catering
In the middle of the Winter Exhibition we took on an extra commitment by participating in the ‘Ageing Life 2016 Central Coast Baby Boomers & Seniors Expo at Mingara. Thanks to all who helped one way or the other with setting up and manning this 1 day ‘Mini’ Art Exhibition. We were looking at promoting CCAS, however, everyone concerned thought it wasn’t worth being involved, so we won’t participate if asked again.
A visit to Earl Hingston’s Gallery and Toukley Art Society’s Gallery, replacing our General Meeting, was very interesting with everyone enjoying the experience.
Earl’s Gallery is unique as it is in the rooms of a practising law firm and may be visited by the public during business hours. Our sincere thanks to Earl, and his wife Helen, for their hospitality and guided tour.
On arrival at TDAS we were warmly welcomed by President Anne Sonter and members. Having guided us around their Gallery, we were provided with a very much appreciated afternoon tea. How fortunate they are to have their own Gallery with a continuous display of works for sale. Thank you, Ladies.
