Quiet day, a few of the girls had to leave early, and Kim is away OS… freezing in NZ, apparently. Everyone has been industrious though, and all working towards our upcoming exhibitions. Keep an eye out for “Talking Points” at Pine Rivers Art Gallery, opening Nov 2017, and ” From Raw Beginnings” opening in March 2018 at the Redcliffe Cultural Centre – two exhibitions with new work. The Cultural Centre exhibition will focus on our group collaborative challenges.
Achiever of the Month: Helen has at last completed her Brisbane Challenge piece! It is FABULOUS! Here are a couple of pics of it… our other achiever of the month is Jan, for winning highly commended for her clock tower at the Redcliffe Show! Congratulations Jan!!
