A number of MVAC members with common interests in the Visual Arts meet on the 3rd Friday of each month (excepting January) at 6pm in the Oddfellows Hall, at which time the members exchange ideas, have a show & tell or problem solve, review new mediums & techniques, and guide and advise on any technical problems members may be experiencing.
Some of the members hire the Macleay Valley Community Art Gallery at Gladstone and mount annual or bi-annual exhibitions. This not only keeps the individual costs down, it allows those artists with a small number of works to have their work hung in a professional environment. Any member is welcome to attend our meetings but we may have to restrict the number of members that exhibit at any one exhibition so that the works can be displayed to their best advantage.
We also occasionally run workshops to demonstrate particular mediums or techniques, which are restricted to active members. Contact Shirley Thring for details.
