I wonder how many people enjoy going to meetings as much as I take pleasure in visiting with the “Painters of the Flinders Ranges” when organizing up and coming exhibitions. I attended one of those meetings today with a social time afterwards.
There is a huge amount of work when it comes to the administration side of our group, more so for our major exhibition that is held at the Wilpena Woolshed once a year. This exhibition runs from 16 Sep – 15 Oct 2006.
At this Wilpena Woolshed Exhibition we have a ball, as artist in residence interacting with our peers as well as meeting many wonderful people that come to view our work. Large numbers of artworks are sold during this exhibition to many holiday makers and visitors who desire to take home a piece of the Flinders Ranges to hang on their walls. Because the artists are painting as well as looking after sales, it gives the customer/visitors an opportunity to ask questions about our artworks first hand. After all it is the artist that has the knowledge of what we are all about.
Even though today was very cold, none of the members or their partners realized it was chilly, as our host John Millard and his wife Edna kept us nice and warm at their beach home at Waroona Island. It was a dreary day but took these two photos of the view I was looking at during the meeting. It was just soooo relaxing!!!
