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!
 
Best regards,
David Briggs
Chairperson NSW Division

 

Colour Society of Australia NSW Division 2016 end-of-year event
"The Story of Colourmaking"
with Winsor & Newton resident artist Natalie O’Connor, Jasco showrooms, Kingsgrove, Wednesday November 23rd, 7.00–9.30 pm
 

 
Resident Artist for Winsor & Newton artists’ materials, Natalie O’Connor will take us on a journey from historical artists’ colours through to the latest innovations of colourmakers today while we enjoy a feast of delicious finger food. This is a rare opportunity to visit the Alladin’s caves that are the showrooms of Jasco Pty Ltd, the Australian distributor of Winsor & Newton, Liquitex, Conte a Paris and many other major brands of artist’s materials. You will get to examine a range of historical pigments and raw materials from the Jasco archive and have the opportunity to ask all of your technical queries over a glass of wine surrounded by colour. Natalie will then introduce us to the latest developments in artists’ materials, including Winsor & Newton’s very recently released pigment markers, which have fifty times the permanence of traditional dye-based markers. Then if you are interested in a particular product, technique or effect, it will be over to you to experiment and to take home the results.
 

Natalie O’Connor is the resident artist and education programs manager for Winsor & Newton, Liquitex and Conté à Paris in Australia. In her role as resident artist she provides technical assistance to artists globally through the brand website and regularly presents lectures at universities and galleries across Australia. She also provides residency and scholarship opportunities for emerging artists and students studying art, and works closely with professional artists to assist them with solutions to their technical queries. Natalie is also a lecturer and PhD candidate at the School of Art at UNSW Art & Design, researching the development and innovation of artists’ colours and how these can affect the evolution of art practice. http://www.winsornewton.com/au/discover/tips-and-techniques/other-tips-and-techniques/the-fine-art-collective-artist-profile-natalie-o-connor
