President’s Message + November Newsletter

Hi all,

We are coming to the end of another busy year and a very successful one at that. We have had a change of venue for our exhibition and the societies first year at Scarborough proved a financial success. The committee took a vote and decided that we will have that venue again for next year’s exhibition. The exhibition stands have also had a facelift with new black covers and thanks to Julie Silvester’s kind donation of the proceeds from the silent auction at our exhibition we will be able to spend the money shortly on some very much needed lights.

This year many of our members have also had solo or joint exhibitions and it was a pleasure to go along and to see such talent. Some of our members are running painting classes in pastels and other mediums and are listed in this newsletter for those that would like to participate. It’s a great way to meet other members and to go over the basics.

One of our members suggested I go onto the Pastel Journal and I have found a wealth of information. If anyone has any websites that they can recommend please let Karyn know so we can place it in the newsletter.

Caroline will be streamlining some changes with making payments so see the Treasurer’s report.

As this is a newsletter for all members, if you have anything to say please let Karyn know so that it can be included in future issues.

I look forward to seeing you all at the Christmas function and to those that can’t make it best wishes for the festive season and see you all on the first Monday in February

Celestine Dyso
