Exhibition at The Atrium, Trim

Good attendance at opening.  Members questioned the lack of publicity material for the exhibition in Trim.  Peter mentioned the need for someone in the group to take charge of publicity material and press coverage at every exhibition.


Exhibition at Toradh – EBB AND FLOW – December 2017

Unfortunately, due to a staffing situation, there will be no opening night at our Ebb and Flow exhibition in December.  An “informal opening” between the hours of 9.30-5 was discussed.  Peter suggested 4.00pm on a week day as a solution.  A grant application was submitted to Meath County Council Arts office for money to run workshops.  We will know if we have this by the end of July.


Next monthly meeting will be combined with a show and tell – Wednesday 30th August in Solstice 7.30-9pm.  (Committee meet at 7pm)
Spend the summer developing ideas and bring along to this meeting.  A request was made for everyone to write a few sentences about their work (around 50 words) and bring it along to the meeting or email it to Annabel (annabelpotterton@hotmail.com).  We will need this information to put together a submission to Solstice for a curated exhibition in 2018.  If we get the space we will be exhibiting a new body of work that has not been used in the Toradgh exhibition and will be called “Phase II”.


Bective Mill Art weekend
9th and 10th September.  Sharon to confirm dates.  A weekend of plein-air painting, workshops, BBQ.  Informal.  Bring a tent or stay in the accommodation.


Colour Mixing Talk
Peter will be painting in Solstice on Wednesday 19th July from 7-9.30pm if anyone would like to come along and work as well.  If anyone is interested he will be doing a talk on colour mixing.


No meeting in September because of Bective weekend.  

October’s meeting will be on Wednesday October 4th.
