DVAS June Newsletter – Out Now!

The Diamond Valley Arts Society June Newsletter is out now.

There is good news and not so good news………the good news is that I have now worked out why my laptop was having issues turning the newsletter into a pdf, which is the file format required to publish on this webpage.  This means I have now more flexible timelines to be able to get the newsletter out on time.  The not-so-good news is that I didn’t make the June timeline as anticipated, so the June edition is out in July.  There will, however, still be a July one, and I really do anticipate it being available before the end of the month.   Fingers crossed!

To see it for yourself  click here and the DVAS June 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

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.

This latest printed version again has unfortunately displayed the photos quite darkly even though I tried to lighten them beforehand. I had an enlightening discussion with Antony who has provided some ideas for editing photos in the next edition. The electronic version is fine.

See you all next month!

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”.
