Members of the public can drop in to view this very interesting little exhibition. Perhaps you visit your doctor regularly there! Enjoy our work and take your mind off your health issues!

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. Corner of Edwards Street and Brighton Road, Brighton. This will be another two week exhibition 14th -27th October. MAG is now in the process of preparing for this exhibition. We will be open at normal day time shopping centre hours. On the two Friday Nights, come to see the exhibition, maybe do some shopping at Foodland and then meet some of the artists over a glass of wine and a cheese platter at ‘Cellabrations’ Wine Bar. The painting for raffle, to raise money for ‘Muddy Puddles’, is donated by well know local artist Liz Maxted. Liz’s beautiful paintings are always very popular with patrons.
We are really looking forward to our first time at our local Shopping Centre at Brighton Central. See you there.
