Permanent Exhibition – Kingston Family Clinic
We are now winding up our association with the Kingston Family Clinic. The current exhibition will be our last and will be finished by the end of November.
Flagstaff Hill Rotary Art Show – We again enjoyed a great exhibition which we first contributed to, as a group, in 2017. This year 27 MAG artists entered the exhibition and a further 5 joined 13 of those 27 artists, in contributing to the basket of 130 ‘unframed’ paintings in our special baskets. 15 MAG paintings sold off the screens which accounted for 24% off all paintings sold from the screens, throughout the exhibition. A further 37 MAG ‘unframed’ paintings were also sold. 18 of our members made significant contributions to the running of the exhibition: helping Rotarians with accepting and hanging paintings, selling raffle tickets, and demonstrating to the public on two occasions throughout the week. Lee-Anne Klings donated painting for raffle was a big focus for patrons as they walked in the front doors. MAG proceeds of the raffle to go to children’s charity, ‘Muddy Puddles’
MAG does SALA@ Bayside Shopping Centre. What a great success this exhibition was. Over two weeks we enjoyed hundreds of keen exhibition viewers and excellent sales of paintings off the screens and from the ‘Unframed’ basket. The raffle of the superb painting, “Serenity Cove” donated by artist Lyn Thomas (See below), was well supported with a great sum of money going to ‘Muddy Puddles’. A most successful event which we hope to repeat next year.
Brighton Central Shopping Centre. Another hugely successful exhibition for us this year. We were hosted by Tim Rugless and his teams at the Brighton Foodland and Ruggy’s Food and Wine bar. We appreciated his support at what we thought was a great venue. This exhibition was smaller than usual (7 screens instead of our usual 10), but we sold well and received many compliments from the public on the consistent high quality of our art work. Liz Maxted’s donated painting, ‘Near Leigh Creek’ was a very popular raffle prize for our ‘Muddle Puddles’ fund raising effort. Great interest was shown by patrons, both at our sales desk and at our two Friday evening ‘meet the artist’ opportunities which took place at Ruggy’s Food and Wine bar.
Thank you to all members of the public who have supported us by letting us share our artwork with you at our exhibitions this year. We have greatly appreciated your positive comments and the purchases you have made.
