Demo Meeting Reminder

MTAS meeting Tuesday 8th February at 7.30pm: 
Macquarie Towns Arts Society will be holding their next monthly meeting on Tuesday 8th February, at 7.30pm in the Stan Stevens Studio, Deerubbin Centre, 300 George St, Windsor. 
Our first demonstration for the year kicks off with well travelled artist Marcia Rea.

Her paintings reflect a love for light, colour and a deep appreciation for the beauty of the Australian landscape.
Marcia has travelled extensively throughout Australia painting outdoors, often enjoying a cuppa with cows in a paddock after a day’s work“. Artists that paint outside can produce a better painting. You’ve got the atmosphere and you’re chasing the light,” she said.
But it was her trip to Venice that has inspired her work today. “It keeps drawing me back,” she said. “It’s the atmosphere, with the mist on the canals and the old buildings. It just looks like they are floating on the water.”
Everyone is welcome to the meeting - $3 for members & $5 for non-members which includes supper & a chance to talk to the demonstrating artist, network with other art minded folk and catching up with Art News from around the district.  Contact Narelle for more info on 02 4565 9222 .

We will also be running a slideshow presentation on a new MTAS home prospect!

See you there!

I enjoyed the Demo. Marcia created a beautiful atmospheric country scene as we all watched. Deidre.
