We had two wet in wet watercolour workshops given by local artist Maureen Runge.
Maureen is an accomplished artist, who has been using watercolour for many years.
All of the participants had a great time learning and having a go at painting in a loose style. Maureen demonstrated painting in stages and offered much support and personal tuition.
Our art society was very fortunate to be able to have our workshops at Goulburn Options, because our gallery is being painted. Many thanks to CEO Rosey.
We all loved it and want more!
A ‘SCUMBLE’ OF ARTISTS!
(During a discussion with some artists friends, we wondered what a good ‘collective noun’ might be for a group of artists, and ‘a scumble’ won)!
A Scumble of Artists from Seymour & District Art Society met over the past weekend for a two day workshop in Impressionism. Our tutor was well known Victorian artist, Ben Winspear. All participants were impressed with Ben’s well prepared lesson plan and his knowledge of the genre. Day 1 was the theory session held at the Old Courthouse Gallery, and Day 2 was a day of plein air painting to put the theory into practice at Goulburn Park, Seymour. Here are a few photos.
Congratulations to all of our winners for 2018
SUNDAY, DECEMBER 9TH FROM 2 UNTIL 4PM
The above date is for our afternoon tea Christmas celebration and Annual Award presentation of the Seymour and District Art Society.
Please come along. We welcome you all and would love to see and meet new people.
The latest gallery hanging, The Annual Exhibition, has now on display in the Old Courthouse Gallery.
It is our largest display for quite a while with 65 paintings to look at.
All works are available to purchase through the Information Centre volunteers and there is so much variety of styles and mediums as well as prices, we are all sure customers will be very happy.
This exhibition will run-through until early March.
The small Charles August Gallery still is full of Small Treasures paintings and is available until the end of this year.
So altogether our gallery holds an incredible amount of lovely art work.
The winner of the best painting in the Annual Exhibition, as voted on by the hanging committee and other Art Society members and Friends of the Gallery is Terri MacDonald for her beautiful painting The Rooster.
The Small Treasures Exhibition is on display in the Charles August Gallery for the months of November and December.
Each art work is priced below $100, which make them ideal Christmas presents.
Many are smaller works, but not all. They are well worth going into the gallery to have a look and see if there is something you would like to purchase.
The wonderful volunteers in the Information Centre can assist with purchases.
The Spring Exhibition is on show at the Old Courthouse Gallery for the months of September, October and November. The works are all for sale and the volunteers in the Information Centre will help potential buyers with their purchases.
Wendy Webster is the winner of
the Spring Exhibition for 2018,
with her painting titled 'Blue Poly Barrels'.

They saw magnificent artworks including by - Jeffrey Smart, Russell Drysdale, Arthur Boyd, Andy Warhole, then followed up with lunch at Murchison East
Art Society members took part in a two day Colour Theory Workshop given by acclaimed artist Ben Winspear.
