JCAA March 2012 Newsletter

Dear Members,

Please find herewith some information relating to pick -ups and exhibitions.

1) Picking up Artwork from the “Fabrication” Exhibition. The Exhibition closes on Saturday 31st March. Due to the City of Joondalup Festival we will be having the “pick up” between 6 and 7 pm on Sunday the 1st of April. Please be kind enough to collect your work during this period.

2) Friday 30th March, our usual morning tea.Please come to an informal tea, meet other members and enjoy a social. Sadly, our speaker is unable to come.

3) The JCAA blend(er) website is coming on very well thanks to Denis Charron. Please visit the website, its really exciting!

Monday 14th May – Saturday 2nd June 2012. This exhibition has no title and encourages artists to submit works relating to their own practice. Entry forms will be posted nearer the time, but in the meantime- no boundaries, get painting!

We are inviting expressions of interest from members, to sign up to, and become a part of an “Artists in Residence” project that we are proposing during the week of Tuesday 8th May – Friday 11th of May 2012. Artists will be working throughout the gallery side by side
with other artists from 10 am until 4 pm each day. Artists may sign up for one day or more at a cost of $15.00 per day which will include tea and biscuits. Whilst painting/ creating artists may hang one or two (depending on available space and size) of their own artworks
on the wall for that day. In order for this to succeed, we need a minimum of 6 – 8 artists per day. If you are interested in working with other members, getting to know others and working in our extensive gallery/ workshop space please sign up/ pay up and pitch up!
Cut off date for entries Friday 13th April.

We will be holding an informal meeting on Wednesday 18th April at 7 pm at the blend(er) Gallery, and are inviting all members to attend.
It is an informal meeting and we hope members will voice opinions and suggestions that will help us in our quest to make this a vibrant creative space.

BREAKING NEWS: The Members Informal Meeting has been rescheduled to

10 April at 7pm.

This could be a very interesting project but can only work with your support! We will be putting the information up on the website.

Thank you for your continued support.
