From the Committee

We hope that you’ve managed to get some painting done over the busy Summer holiday season.

Our members submitted 48 paintings to our first Summer in New Zealand Competition, sponsored by Winsor & Newton. The three prizewinning paintings, along with a number of highly commended works, are featured later in the newsletter.

Congratulations are due to Jacky Pearson who has had a four page article, Colour in All its Forms, published in the latest issue, No 37, of the prestigious international magazine The Art of Watercolour. Jacky conducts regular workshops for Watercolour New Zealand and has contributed a number of articles to our newsletter. Watercolour New Zealand patron Adrienne Pavelka, along with Richard Bolton, Svetlana Orinko, Jacky Pearson and Dianne Taylor will be featured in the Watercolour Society of Western Australia’s International Watercolour Exhibition which takes place in Fremantle from 13 March to 13 April this year. There are a number of activities associated with the show including a celebration dinner, painting demonstrations, workshops (some of them free) and plein air painting opportunities. If you’re interested in attending this exhibition further information is available on the society’s website, www.watercolourswa.org.au.

Our Watercolour New Zealand Autumn Paintaway to Methven takes place from Friday 8 May to Wednesday 13 May. Painters of all levels, from beginners to professional artists, attend our Paintaways. New painters will be supported by experienced artists and partners and non-painters are welcome. Paintaways are popular and enjoyable events, well worth considering if you haven’t previously taken part in one. For further information, email bookings@watercolournewzealand.nz, subject line: Paintaway Methven.

The Watercolour New Zealand AGM takes place at the Karori Arts and Craft Centre, Beauchamp St, Karori on Sunday 8 March at 2pm. We are always looking for new committee members and hope to elect a new president and vice presidents in the following month. Our current membership stands at over 450 and we are dependent on volunteers for all of our activities. We’d love to see you at the AGM.
