March Update

Hello Everyone - we are hoping you are enjoying 2012 and staying creative.
We have decided to do away with the newsletter and inform you on any ArtsCape news via this website. We hope this can make it easier to read and more accessible to everyone. The following is our update for March:

The AGM was held on 17th February and your committee was returned with the addition of Josephine Lawrence as Treasurer.  Jo is an accomplished artist and comes with a lot of experience of community arts centre’s in Queensland and we welcome her fresh ideas to ArtsCape.  In her President’s report Alwyn listed many of the achievements over 2011, including all the redecoration work, increase in membership, enthusiasm of user groups such as Stitch and Bitch and Word Players, Leadlighting and Life Drawing classes, projects such as Arty Crafty Tulips, the hugely popular Peter Sargison exhibition and the 4 TRA Touring exhibitions.  She thanked the committee and all members for their contributions and believes that in 2012 “we can look forward to continuing growth and even to more change”!   

At the following Committee meeting on 7th March we started putting plans in place for 2012:
  • Sunday 1st April at 2.30pm – Orientation for Volunteers.
    This is open to all members or people wishing to be members and will briefly outline the type of volunteer activities available at ArtsCape.  It will be short and informal and enjoyed with a cup of tea or coffee and maybe something sweet! 
  • 18th May at 6 pm TRA Exhibition Opening Night
    Birds & Drawing of Raffle for 3 paintings by local artist Brett Colcorde.  Raffle tickets are available at Markets and the Orientation, or through President Alwyn.
  • Saturday 19th May from 12 – 2.30pm Vocal Nosh
    This is a fun workshop with Teresa Beck-Swindale and Trudy Dudding and is for anyone who enjoys singing or thinks they can’t sing but would love to have a go!  It covers a diverse mix of simple songs, harmonies, rhythms and learning at least one more challenging song in several parts.   The vocal work is divided into 2 parts with a break for a light lunch and an opportunity to socialise, meet new people and share information.  If enough of us want to continue, Teresa can provide assistance in starting a group.  The cost will be $15. (including lunch) with a maximum number of 20 so get in early!    Book with Janet on janetsell@netspace.net.au
  • 30th June Next ArtsCape Talk – speaker TBA
Other plans include a photography exhibition in October, TRA Touring Exhibition in November.

Hope you can find something there that you would love to attend and we look forward to seeing you.
