If you weren't there you missed a great Social Meeting

We had our Social Meeting yesterday, held every second Thursday starting at 5.30 pm and usually finishing around 7 pm. Yesterday we had such a good time, we only left at 8.15 pm because all the nibbles got ate and so we went in search of further fodder :)
A very dry storm came and blew the power so we had most of the gathering by candlelight. Very atmospheric :)

We had a new applicant do a presentation and WOW! what a fantastical addition Meredith will be. Her work is so pretty and confronting all at the same time!

Don't forget to bring your art CCCs for the Banjo Paterson Australian Poetry Festival, this weekend 13 - 14 February is the cut off date, so be there to help get the building ready and bring your creations! All exhibiting artists get together and get the building ready, put their name on the roster for two 3 hour sessions. It's a short festival but it's always fun to just hang together and talk art with each other and our visitors. The festival runs from 17 to 21 February and we're open every day from 10 am to 4 pm, with a celebration party on Saturday starting at 6 pm.

As it's Farmer's Market it's also the start of our once monthly opening of the Barracks to the public, lucky we'll be there already!

We visited the Barracks a few weeks ago while staying in Orange for a few days.

What a marvellous place for people to exhibit their talent and work at it in a supportive and I suspect collaborative atmosphere..

We saw some wonderful work but especially that of Wanda Driscoll and Denis Claydon
