NEXT MEETING:

This is our annual meeting to review the past year and elect a new committee for moving forward.

The Committee is the engine which  drives Art Group Nelson providing workshops, exhibitions and monthly speakers for its members.  In order to enjoy a creative and fulfilling 2024-25 we need your support at the AGM.  Please consider taking on the role of President, Vice President, Events Coordinator, or Workshop Coordinator. Without a President and VP we cannot legally operate!  And without an Events
Co-ordinator there will be no Winter or Summer Exhibitions. Same for workshops.

Currently we have the following officers and committee members who will stay on for another year:
Lyse Beck - Secretary
Sandee England - Treasurer
Wendy Furness - General meeting/Speaker  Coordinator
Ron Kratz - General committee member.

William Liebisch - will continue as Workshop coordinator for 2024. We need a new workshop coordinator for 2025.

The formal part of the meeting will be followed by a drawing activity. Please bring drawing materials, paper and an object to challenge you.

You can share your artwork at Show and Tell limited to 2 items per person and please note the new guidelines. You may display a few items against the front wall, but you are limited to talking about 2 of them. Your time will be monitored so that all have an equal opportunity. If you wish a critique please invite 1 person, or ask for volunteers and pick one, and see them at the end of the meeting so that there are no interruptions.

 

JULY MEETING:
7 PM WED, 7th July, 2024


Guest Speaker: Audrey Anderson
Topic: Free flow drawing with ink 

"Throughout my art career, I've explored various mediums, but I've found my home in ink. Its allure lies in its capacity to facilitate drawing, painting, and engaging with the unpredictable. Unlike many other mediums, ink demands a delicate balance; overworking or exerting too much control diminishes its inherent beauty. Rooted in Asian tradition, ink art is approached mindfully, with each stroke honoring the present moment. This mindful practice involves committing to each stroke, refraining from corrections or edits—a testament to the belief that beauty resides in the spontaneity of creation. For me, each line drawn represents a moment captured, a thought transferred—an embodiment of the reverence for the present moment within the artistic process."
