Another year has moved along with members of Kiama Art Society participating and enjoying the varied activities offered by KAS;  Demonstrations, Workshops, Classes and Exhibitions. Congratulations to all our artists who received awards. This is a wonderful reflection of the talent within our society. Thank you to all who have contributed time in many ways; helping at the exhibitions, demonstrations and workshops. With only seven committee members, involvement of any kind is appreciated. A suggestion to hold an evening demonstration is in the pipeline and feedback via an email from those interested would be welcome.

I would like to acknowledge the work done by our treasurer Ray Teasdale, Doreen Teasdale with our newsletter/website, Heather Netherclift with the Fire Station exhibitions and Art in the Park,  Helen Pain with organisation of the workshops, Robyn McMillan our Secretary who has worn many hats over the last 12 months and Karen Wright for becoming our camera operator and helping out wherever she is needed. Please support your committee by attending the AGM in February.

Sadly ,Ruth Gill,  a respected and a talented, gentle lady and long time member passed away last month.

Do not forget to contact Heather  if you wish to exhibit at the Fire Station Exhibition starting Thurs. 30th November.

We look forward to catching up at our last event for the year, the Christmas Gathering at the Leagues club on TUESDAY the 12th December 12.00pm.

Wishing all a safe and festive season.

Judy White (President)
