GALLERY NEWS

FEBRUARY 2014- Book your Exhibition Now

It is still early in the year and yet we already have several bookings for 2015, so if you are planning or considering either a SOLO or a GROUP exhibition for next year, now is the time to lock it in so that you can choose the Exhibition Room that you would prefer to use.

There are several "Open" exhibitions throughout this year, so take advantage of this and encourage any artists you know to enter, our fees are VERY reasonable.

There are prizes for the following: "175th Gawler History exhibition" in April/May, the "Photographic exhibition" in May/June, and the "Gawler Art Award", in August/September.
As is usual, Non-members will attract a 33.3% commission on any sales they have and members the usual 25% commission.

"The Gawler Art Award" prize money has been increased this year to a total prize pool of $2,500.  so I hope you all have great ideas for your entries in this one.

Exhibitions with a TWIST !

We are hoping to have the "Adelaide Plains" writing group come in during "The Mother" exhibition (27th Feb to April 6th) and write a poem on the piece of Art which moves/appeals to each of their members. This has been done before with some lovely poems written, and was very popular. We hope  to display some of them with the Art piece they are about also.

It is also proposed that the "Transitions" group stop over at the gallery during their "Bike Ride Tresure Hunt", and whilst there select a painting and do a critique on it.  Just another way to add interest to our activities and help with the promotion and awareness of our gallery's existence in the community and beyond. This one is yet to be confirmed and the date selected, so will keep you posted.

Also yet to be confirmed is the possibility of holding a "Re-use, Reduce and Recycle" Exhibition later in the year.

These will all present some very intersting results, so get amongst it and start producing some fantastic work for them.

Our Treasurer Ellen has taken on the role of co-ordinator for the Art section at The Gawler Show this year, there will be prize money involved, however I do not have the exact details of this as yet.

Whilst our forever active Secretary and her helpers were sorting, collating and filing all our many, many papers, they came across some gift vouchers with the gallery logo on them.  It has been agreed to re-instate these and they will soon be available for our customers to purchase.

What industrious and clever people we have amongst our members and committee.
A HUGE thanks go out to Colleen, Sylvia and Joanne for the above efforts this last month.

Thanks also to Carol, Judy and her partner Dave for their clean up at the gallery both inside and outside in the garden.
