Gear up for the AWS Library Show

Secretary's Column

The Auckland Watercolour Society's Library Show "Art on the Shore" will start on the 4th August 2013 (set up/receiving day)and finish on the 31st August 2013. Opening night will be the 5th August from 6pm at the Takapuna Library. The charity for this event is the Westpac Rescue Helicopter. 20 percent of sales will go to the Auckland Rescue Helicopter Trust ARHT (this is not compulsory).
Barry Watkin from the Westpac Helicopter rescue service will be there to talk about the Helicopter Rescue Service.
Two paintings per member will be accepted on the set up day and members should have "spares" in reserve to replenish the exhibition as the art show is one where the purchaser can buy and take the work immediately. Works may either be watercolour/acrylic or oils or pastels. This show will be held in conjunction with students from Lake House watercolour and acrylic classes.
Our art shows at the Library have alsways been very successful and I am sure our August show will be as well.
(members attending the opening night are asked to bring a goodie and a bottle of wine to share)
