Word from the President…

Dear Members,

I am delighted to be writing my first President’s foreword for 2018.  I want to personally thank the Members who attended our December AGM and cast your votes for the 2018 Committee.  We had our first Committee Meeting on the 16 January and we are well prepared for the year ahead. 

Inside this first edition is a new listing of all our Committee and the Portfolios they are Coordinating.  Hopefully this will make it easier for you our Members should you have an enquiry and wish to talk to a Committee Member on a specific matter.  I plan to be at the Art House on Friday’s between 10 and 12 noon and I am inviting you to pop in should you have an issue you wish to discuss. 

Our February Members Meeting is on 01 February at Creyk Park and hopefully we will be welcoming quite a few new Members to the meeting.  Members entry is free. You are welcome to bring a visitor along, first time is Complimentary.

Our 2018 Membership’s are now due for renewal, new member forms have been included in this Newsletter, please complete and bring along with your fees to the next Members Meeting, or alternatively post to the Treasurer’s address on the Membership Form.

The ASA web site is looking excellent and it is well worth browsing our site.  You will find a members only section which can be accessed by password and Pin Number, which you will receive with your renewal Membership card and other discount cards.  The new members only section will give you access to download Forms, Roster information, Minutes of Meetings.   

The Pop-Up-Shop at Armadale Shopping Centre leading up to Christmas sold over 100 paintings which was a fantastic thrill for all concerned.  I would like to thank the Sub Committee, and the Hanging Team for all their hard work.  Having that access to the General Public has given us the unique opportunity to Promote ASA to the Community.  Other local artists have popped into the shop for a chat and lots of Membership information has been circulated.   Current status on the shop. It looks like we may have the Pop-Up-Shop for a few months longer so please check out inside the Newsletter for the Pop-Up-Shop News.

I am feeling very excited that this is shaping up to be a year full of activities.   We have a wonderful Committee and Volunteer infrastructure which hopefully is now more accessible to all our Members. I would also like to congratulate and welcome our Newsletter Editor, Kate Malkiewycz on her first newsletter.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Trish Halloran

President

[email protected]

Solar painting is an interesting technique using inks or fluid watercolour, dropped on paper and put out in the sun for it to do it’s magic! We will use ferns, leaves and flowers to create patterns. As in the above painting (triptych) the painting worked without any additions to it, but you can use it for many things. As a background for a painting, use it as a collage paper. It is limited by your imagination.

GREAT FOR MAKING GREETING CARDS, so you will be making some from your solar paintings, card stock is supplied.

You will need

  • Spray bottle
  • Rigger brush
  • Lunch

For further information, please don’t hesitate to contact me by email or mobile phone.

I hope you will have a very exciting time at our workshop, remember that your art should be primarily for your enjoyment, if someone else loves it enough to have it on their wall, that is a bonus.

If you love what you do it will show in your work.

September newsletter

Hi Everyone,

I hope you are well and recovered from the Exhibition. Another huge

success with many sales and interest in our Society. It has been such a wonderful way to promote the Arthouse, lessons, workshops and what we do, as well as selling our work. Let's hope we can continue to do it next year. A huge thank you to all those who put so much work into it to make it a success. Without your continued effort, we would not be able to put it together. I'm not sure on the amount of sales but will let you know at next members meeting.

Next of course, is the Armadale Hills Open Studio Arts Trail. We have 19 members participating this year and I'm sure it will be great. Let's hope we have some lovely spring weather. The Trail runs for 3 weekends 8-10, 15-17, 22-24 September. Maps and information are available at the

Arthouse and will also be at the members meeting. City of Armadale are doing a huge amount of promoting and it's great to get their continued support.

Thankyou to those members who were able to do rosters at the Outside The Frame Exhibition. Once again, we were able to promote our Society and enjoy the talented artwork produced by our school students.

Hope to see you at the next meeting, Spring is on the way, time to strip off those winter woollies, come out of hibernation and enjoy whatever passion you have.

Anna (president) 0411633015

NEXT MEETING

The next meeting will be Thursday 7TH September

at 7:00pm at the

Creyk Park Pavilion, Waltham Rd, Armadale .

OUR DEMONSTRATOR FOR SEPTEMBER WILL BE

DOT MARSHALL

Dot will be showing you how to create lots of texture in your trees using mulberry paper, the results are very tactile, almost like touching the bark of real trees. She is always happy to share the techniques used in her paintings so you can apply them to your own. If you have any questions on the night she will be happy to answer them if she can. You probably know Dot has been teaching at the art house since we took over the property, now she has finished teaching weekly after moving to Fremantle but runs workshops regularly from the art house.

She is a past president and was on the committee for many years in different roles, treasurer, vice president and for a while stand in secretary. Her time with the society has been a life changer, art has always been important but like most people life got in the way for many years until she was able to find time to resume painting again then joined this great society. She is an award winning artist and has run workshops in the country of W.A. and judged exhibitions locally and in the country. Art is good for the sole and you should try and find time every day to pick up and brush, or pencil (or anything else you can find to make marks) and create.

Also a few new members and a lot of interest in the society and our upcoming annual exhibition and the Art Studio Trail. We should give a special thanks to Ian Kallas for getting this venue for us, and the whole committee for their work organising. Also the members, and some partners, who have helped behind the scenes and on the roster. These exhibitions are always great fun to be a part of, and roster duty is a really nice way to get to know your fellow members, also to be able to talk to the public and promote our society, a lot of the members painted whilst on duty much to the joy of the visitors, this of course also helped with the sales. And the new screens worked very well.

ANNUAL EXHIBITION

The Annual exhibition is fast approaching and its time to think about painting some small paintings for the catalogues.

Just to explain to our newer members, we sell catalogues at our annual exhibition to raise funds to help toward the cost of putting on this event, and as we do not have commission on the sale of your work we ask that you do at least 4 paintings each on watercolour paper or canvas that we then fix to the front of the catalogue, this not only promotes your art work but raises a significant amount toward the expense. The size must be 15cm x 13cm . You can drop them off at the Art House or bring along to any of the meetings. THANK YOU

WATERCOLOUR PAPER CUT TO SIZE IS AVAILABLE AT THE ART HOUSE


EXHIBITION

APRIL MAY 2017 NEWSLETTER

Here is our latest newsletter, I hope you enjoy reading it.

Hi Everyone,

I hope you are all well. Minnawarra Art Awards are well underway and there are some fabulous works this year including those from our very talented members Catherine Kelley and Leesa Padget. A huge thankyou to Maureen Smith and Lynda Everitt for organising the roster and to those who have done rosters. I also had the opportunity to visit the Beverley Annual Exhibition where several of our members were displaying their artwork. Well done to all those who exhibited and I also noticed that Sandy Robertson had sold one of his paintings and Leesa won the mixed media prize.

It's been lovely to see many of our members being active in different events going on around the city including ZigZag Gallery, Belmont Art Awards, Kalamunda Agricultural Hall with a art and craft market as well as the Minnawarra Art Markets. I hope you have lots of enjoyment and make a few sales in the process.

The Committee are now organising our 30th Anniversary. We are looking at doing a High Tea on the 3rd July for all of our members in the Armadale Town Hall. So mark this day on your calendar. Val has been busy organising the catering, hall, invitations etc. We will let you know more when it gets closer.

I would just like to say a big thankyou to the Committee this year as well as the members who do the different jobs to make the Society a success, you all know who you are and I'm very glad everything is running so smoothly. You make my job so much easier.

So happy painting, hope to see you at the next members meeting,

Anna(president) 0411633015

NEXT MEETING

The next meeting will be Thursday 4th May

at 7:00pm at the

Creyk Park Pavilion, Waltham Rd, Armadale .

THE DEMONSTRATOR AT THIS MEETING WILL BE

 

LORI NEUZERLING

Lori was born in Manjimup in the southwest of Western Australia. Her early years were spent on her father’s farm in the beautiful karri country of Northcliffe, near the famous Valley of the Giants, and this lush wilderness nurtured in her a love and respect for its distinctive plants and wildlife.

Lori’s adventurous spirit took her to some of the remotest parts of Australia over many years of her adult life but she eventually returned to her place of birth in the early 1990’s and there her love of the southwest was reborn. It was then that she began painting her vivid and intricate watercolours of bush life. Lori is completely self-taught. Through trial and experiment, she developed her own unique and exacting art. Her first love is the flora and fauna of Western Australia, but Lori finds inspiration and fascination in the colours, textures and contours of almost all plant life and wild creatures.

Subjects for meetings,

WHAT HAS OUR SECRETARY, HELEN GORDON, BEEN DOING FOR THE PAST FEW WEEKS ———-

 

"Most of my life I have been a community artist, setting up art centres, developing art groups and doing collaborative art works - murals, banners, even painting bus stops (in Tom Price with classes of children from the local schools). Quite a different mind set to being an individual artist.

The purpose is to bring a group of people together in a combined creative effort. Your role becomes that of firstly designing the project, then breaking up the total art work into parts so everybody can contribute, the final effect must be coherent and effective. In this case, the Karijini Experience, I was asked to design a collaborative art work that would involve a minimum of 100 people of all ages. I came up with the idea of using their logo (long coloured stripes that bend into the middle) and then decorating the spaces in between and converting it into a waterfall. The whole picture was made up of 6 panels 7.2m wide and 2m high in total.

The top piece of wood was cut up like a jigsaw with about 150 pieces which were labeled on the back. The stripes were all stuck on but raised up so they stood out. The pieces in between, the water and the waterfalls were all painted separately by different people and were decorated with sand painting (draw with glue then cover with sand and shake off) and paint made from ground-up iron ore dust and collaged with leaves and nuts and bark form the surrounding area. These panels were done by people of all ages form 2 to 70 When they were dry they were stuck on.

This all happened over 3 days.

If you are interested in the Karijini Experience you can find it on the internet - there are a large number of events over 5 days in the Karijini national park. WASSO was there with the Short Black Opera company singers in one of the gorges, dinner for 150 people under the stars, coroborees, resident artists, basket making with Indigenous people, concerts, walks through the bush to learn about bush foods, photographic trips through the gorges, geologists teaching about the rock formations, storytelling, yoga in the morning, a maker's market. It brought together people from all over the world all camped together with primitive amenities and, being no internet or mobile phone coverage people actually talked with each other and made connections with each other that would last forever.

PS. In one month I am off to coordinate the painting of a large mural in Jameson - some 2000kms east of Perth. I figure I may as well do it while I still can."

HELEN GORDON

Newsletter March/April

WELCOME TO THE MARCH/APRIL SOCIETY NEWSLETTER, I HOPE YOU ENJOY

Hi Everyone,

Well the Shopping Centre Exhibition has now finished and I am so pleased at how successful it was. From checking in, to hanging, to rosters, to checking out and dismantling, everything ran very smoothly. Even using the eftpos machine wasn't as daunting anymore for first time users thanks to Val giving a few lessons. I would like to say a huge Thank you to Armadale Shopping City for allowing us to use the fantastic area to display our artworks. They have been very positive in helping us promote Armadale Society of Artists as well as sell our artwork. We will be working closely with them in the future, so stay tuned for further news. Another big Thank you to Ian Kallas and our wonderful Committee for putting in 110% in making sure the Exhibition was a success. It's a great feeling when you put so much work into something and it comes off as well as it does. Another Thank you to Dot Marshall for doing the labels and organising the list of entrants. To the volunteers who helped with setting up and dismantling at the end of the exhibition, Thankyou.

There were 44 entrants, 298 paintings exhibited and 106 paintings sold, as well as a few new members and many people showing interest in joining the Society or doing lessons or workshops.

I would like to welcome Lynda Everitt to the Committee. Lynda has recently become a member and would like to become more involved in the Society. I am very happy that she has volunteered to be on the Committee and I look forward to working with her. She is currently helping Sandra Spindler with the display at the Armadale Home Help, which so far has sold 5 paintings.

Minnawarra Art Awards are starting on the 22nd April and once again, they have asked us to man the exhibition. This is a great fundraiser for us so if you are able to do a roster, it would be very appreciated. The roster will be left in the shed at the Art House and will also be at the next members meeting.

So, see you all at the next members meeting on the 6th April, (the year is going way too fast!) I'm looking very forward to it.

Happy painting, Anna (president) 0411633015

SHOPPING CENTRE EXHIBITION

WOW

What a huge success.

 

As Anna mentioned on the front page, 106 paintings were sold over the 11 days, quite amazing, the standard of work from our wonderful members just gets better and better. We also had a lot of interest from people wanting to join us.

There will be another around August so hopefully you will all be working toward that, small paintings are a bit of a challenge for most of us but a lot of fun. Thanks so much to the shopping centre, staff and traders, who made us very welcome. And, of course, our presidentAnna  who made sure the wheels were well oiled and ran smoothly.

We need to give a big thankyou to Alan Newbey, Ian Kallas Glen Mezger, and Eddie Beer, and I believe Alan and Anna’s son also helped to make the screens, they were very professional and light and easy to move around. Also to those who volunteered to help, set up and take down and the members on roster. CONGRATULATIONS to everyone who entered on the whole a credit to the society.
