Diamond Valley Arts Society Inc.

The Diamond Valley Arts Society October Newsletter is out now.

Hi everyone, yet again it has been another busy month, with the Art Show happening over the 19th-21st October weekend, the trip to Geelong Art Gallery to see the Archibald Prize, and some new art sessions are being organised at the DVAS rooms.  So, as I had plenty to report about in this newsletter, it became an 8 page spread, double its usual size.

To see it for yourself  click here and the DVAS October newsletter will download to your computer. If you want a printed copy or have any suggestions for future newsletters please email Jo on admin@dvartsociety.com.au

Note also that the DVAS Christmas lunch is booked for the Sun 2nd December, at the Greensborough RSL. If you are planning on attending please let Ellen know ASAP so that she can book enough seats.

To reduce our carbon footprint, it is preferable for the Society to provide an electronic version of the newsletter so you can read it online and not waste paper.  You can download your own version if you so choose and even print it off yourself.  The reduction in the postage costs has been considerable and has allowed us to use that money more wisely elsewhere.

We do still provide paper versions to those without email access or who don’t use the internet.  Those people elect to have the newsletter posted out to them.

See you all next month!

Art Show this weekend 19th – 21st October

The Diamond Valley Arts Society are holding their annual Art Show this weekend, at the Greensborough Masonic Centre, 23 Ester Street Greensborough.

Opening Night is Friday from 7:00pm, come along and meet some of the artists and watch the presentation of prizes.

Open Saturday 10:00 – 5:00, and Sunday 10:00 – 4:00.

Entry is $2.00.

There are 104 entries on display, and we have works submitted in a variety of categories and mediums.

We have also heard a whisper that some of our artists will be doing demonstrations over the weekend, and you can ask them questions about their style of work.  This information will be made available after the opening ceremony, which will be led by our President Ellen Jenkins.

There will also be art for sale in the foyer, and a raffle.  You can also submit a people choice entry.

See you there!

Anna Dalton joins DVAS Gallery

 Anna has been a member of DVAS since 2009. “I attribute me love of painting to being influenced by a wonderful childhood spent in the scenic beauty that is East Gippsland. Constantly observing and wanting to capture my surrounds, I was sketching from an early age. It is to Gippsland and its coastline that I still return time and again, both for reflection and inspiration, my camera always on hand”.

All welcome!!!

*Please note: A small door charge of $5 for members and $8 for non members will apply which will help our committee fund future guest demonstrations.
