Right now we’re gearing up for our October Splash 2015 exhibition at the Academy of Fine Arts gallery, a first class Central Wellington venue. We would welcome volunteers from our members in the Wellington region to help us with the exhibition to make it less of a case of “so much being owed by so many to so few”. We’re confident
we can mount another top class show and would urge you to send us your best work for the exhibition.
Our last exhibition, WW1 in Watercolours at Splash was most successful with very good attendance and sales. Exhibition manager Claire Clark has nominated the exhibition for the Arts section of the Wellington Airport Regional Community Awards and I’m pleased to report that Watercolour New Zealand has made the finals. The
winners will be announced on 25 August, the date this newsletter goes to the printer.
Since the last newsletter we have run two successful workshops: a youth workshop tutored by Alfred Memelink, the fees subsidised from the Eleanor Fyle Training Fund and Portraits in Watercolour with Eric Dyne. Both workshops were well attended and generated a lot of positive comment. We would welcome your suggestions regarding possible workshops we could run in 2016.
I would hope that if you haven’t already got your paintings done for our October exhibition, you will get down to work soon to produce some masterpieces.
