Dear NSW Division members and friends,
I am pleased to announce that our final event for 2016 will combine our end-of-year celebration with a fascinating demonstration of historical and modern artists’ materials by Winsor & Newton representative Natalie O’Connor, plus some hands-on exploration of the most exciting recent developments in artist’s materials.
We are very grateful to Jasco Pty Ltd, the Australian distributor of Winsor & Newton, Liquitex, Conté à Paris and many other major brands of artist’s materials, for generously hosting this event for the Colour Society, and I hope to see great turnout of members and their guests, so please consider carefully if you have any friends or associates who might like to join us. An A4 poster you could put up or hand out can be downloaded from this link.
This event caps a great year for the NSW Division, including our display, Classics and Curiosities of Colour at the National Art School for International Colour Day (March 2016), a walking tour of twelve galleries in Darlinghurst (April), a visit to Jocelyn Maughan’s retrospective at the Gosford Regional Gallery (August), and wonderful presentations by film and television colourist Angela Cerasi (May), Sonia van de Haar of the design practice Lymesmith and Rachael Devine of Resene paints (June), AGNSW paintings conservator Simon Ives (July) and acclaimed children’s book illustrator Freya Blackwood (September).
Next year is going to bring a great and diverse range of presenters as well as a function to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Colour Society of Australia, so stay tuned!
Chairperson NSW Division
