Pastel Society WA Newsletter November 2020

Message from the President

Since my last report in March of this year our lives have been very different! I think many of us have been grateful that we have had our art to keep us occupied.

My thanks go to Julie Zohar and Trish (our secretary) for getting the Facebook page up and running. While we were unable to meet in person the weekly challenge kept many of us communicating and sharing artwork. It also attracted more interest in our society and ultimately some new members.

Once we were able to resume weekly meetings Jill’s innovative programme of activities encouraged us to leave our warm comfort zones and participate. It has been fantastic to see more members coming on Monday nights. Let’s keep that going!

Unfortunately, our Annual Exhibition had to be cancelled as so many others were. We must stay focused on a fantastic showing next year. Luckily we have been given another Popup Shop opportunity by the City of Joondalup. This time it is at Sorrento Quay so I urge you all to participate by entering some work and volunteering for the shop roster. It’s always good to chat to potential customers about your artwork and our society.

Finally, I would encourage you to step up and nominate for the vacant positions at our A.G.M. on November 16th. As outgoing President, I would like to thank Rayma, Trish, Adrianne and all committee members for their constant support and assistance.

Stay safe and well, and Happy Pastelling to you all.

Happy Pastelling,

Val Brooks
