- Workshops & Demonstrations
We engage professional artists to run afternoon demonstrations (usually Sundays) throughout the year, covering all forms of painting and drawing. Most years these will include oils, watercolors, acrylics, pastels, portraiture. Also, we organize workshops, usually during school holidays.
- Annual Exhibition (in the first week of November )
This is often the culmination of members’ works for the year, giving all a chance to be displayed. We convert out studio and gallery into an exhibition space for around 200 works over 4 days in early November, and advertise widely in the Bayside area. We have valuable prizes offered by our sponsors across our major categories of work, professionally judged by well-known art judges, as well as a ‘People’s Choice’ award.
- Appraisal Night
Members are invited to bring finished or unfinished works for sympathetic evaluation by a visiting professional artist. It’s a great opportunity for members and the appraisee to learn where and why they get stuck and what great potentials they have.
- Social Activities
A number of social activities for members and friends are held during the year, especially our mid-year ‘Casserole night’ when members bring a dinner course and we combine these for a great dinner. Member can also display works with a culinary theme, judged during the night with the prize of a Class term for free.
- Paint Outs & Sketch Outs
Outdoor painting sessions and weekend painting trips and day-long sketch-outs are organized by interested members. Keep a look-out in Panorama for coming events.
- Kevin Taylor Gallery
From Society groups to individual members, the Gallery can be booked for exhibitions and displays. This is a free service, dependent only on availability of the Gallery. There’s a booking diary in the Studio, and be sure to book sufficient time to allow hanging, showing and removal of works. In 2008, there were displays of work by many of the tutored groups: portrait, watercolour, pastel, oil and pen and wash. John Nathan had an exhibition encompassing forty years of his artwork.
