MTAS May Art Demo Meeting 8th May

Macquarie Towns Arts Society are very excited to be featuring Paul McCarthy - Acrylics demonstrator as our May art demonstrator on Tuesday evening 8th May.

Paul has been painting and selling his work for the last 25 years. At the end of 2000 he left the corporate world where he worked in logistics management to paint full time. In those endeavours he has had numerous solo and joint exhibitions both here and overseas, including a joint exhibition in Soho New York in 2001.
Paul has worked extensively as a community artist in varied capacities including working with a remote aboriginal community, high schools, and acting curator for the Sydney Children's Hospital. He has also coordinated several groups of volunteers working with groups covering the Sydney Children's Hospital, the Sydney Cancer Centre at Royal Prince Alfred Hospital as well as adults with disabilities at Studio Artes Hornsby.

He is a sought after prize winning tutor who brings a sense of fun and excitement to the classroom, encourages individuality as well as developing design composition and colour skills.

Macquarie Towns Art Society has been active in the Hawkesbury area for many years. New memberships with the society are always welcome.

Our art demonstration meetings are becoming more & more popular! Everyone is welcome to join us for a very special evening with Paul demonstrating as well as a great opportunity to enjoy networking with like-minded art enthusiasts of all ages.
