Inside Outside - Current Exhibition

A fantastic opening was had celebrating the works of these lovely local artists. The art center was busting at the seams with a crowd and an energy that was outstanding. It was lovely to see this beautiful collection of local artists displaying their beautiful works and being supported by so many of the locals.

A big thankyou to the artists and the hard work that was put into the opening, the art work that is exhibited and the people that turned up and showed their support for local talent.

You can view this exhibition till the 12th of December  on Tuesdays - Saturdays from 10am till 2pm. 
We would love to see you there.

Social Media and You

This blogging for beginners workshop where the focus will on branding and marketing (arts branding and marketing in particular), developing a first blog and basic instruction for tackling social media.  Living as an artist in our regional location makes it very important to get yourself out there as much as possible. Take the fear away from people and empower themselves to really make a go out of their craft.
Especially when events like this happen to the makers of our region. This happened without any public consultation and will devastating for our arts community. It is not simply good enough to sit there and take it - to mope around waiting to be discovered. People must be pro-active in their marketing. It is not selling out. To continually work for free as an artist and not be active in your personal development is a down right idiotic approach - revolution of your personal image, time and space is a must.
This workshop is focussed on those at the beginning of their marketing and branding. Those more advanced in blogging would not get as much out of it.  This workshop will take the fear out of peoples first attempts into social media and hopefully they can continue to advance from there. It will be a solid foundation to grow from.
So till next time - what challenges do you face in your location that can be overcome through blogging? I'd be interested to know.

March Events

We have a wonderful double exhibition starting on Friday 16th March รข€“ Jo Lawrence's "Little Views" very vibrant paintings which compliment Mervyn Mitchell's "Small  Spaces" ceramic pots in all sorts of lovely designs.  The exhibition will be open from 10 - 2 pm on Friday and Saturday, and then Tuesday to Saturday the following 2 weeks. The Opening Reception was held a at 6 pm on 20th March - we had a fantastic crowd and would love to thank everyone that came and supported our lovely local artists.  

On Saturday 30th March at 2 pm we have another of our ArtsCape Talks, this time with Evelyn Antonysen who many of you will know from her exhibitions, workshops and lively blog!   Evelyn works in many mediums and has called her talk "diversity" and the afternoon promises to be very lively, informative and inspirational!    So if you're having Easter at home this year, or have visitors, bring them along and enjoy afternoon tea and some interesting conversations.  Enquiries or RSVP to 0408 421 166  

Many of you will remember Sarge's very successful first exhibition at ArtsCape over a year ago and have seen his paintings in various venue's since then.  He is now preparing some more work and requires space so will be using the backroom at ArtsCape during the week following Easter.  This should not cause any problems for other users but please respect any material he leaves out during this period.  

Finally, just another gentle reminder to those who haven't yet renewed their membership, or to anyone wishing to join just let me know and I'll be delighted to send you the details!
