Meeting July 2016

Date – Sunday 3 July 2016
Time – 1:30pm to 4:00 pm
Venue – Coldstream Community Centre, Kelso Street, Coldstream – Melways Map 281 B10

Demonstration – The demonstration this month will be given by Margaret Mc Loughlin, who will work with acrylics.

Margaret describes her approach as follows:

” … expresses her creativity by working in a large range of media – from oil painting on canvas to mixed-media works on paper, printmaking and silk painting- all of which influence each other and help to maintain a freshness and integrity.
“Her works are recognizable as expressions of her passion for vibrant colour, pattern, texture, strong form and the figure. Margaret’s compositions, commonly lyrical, often reveal a story and recent works are strongly inspired by views of the local Yarra Valley landscape.”

Margaret was born in Johannesburg, South Africa, and moved to Melbourne in 1985. She has lived in the Yarra Valley since 2004.

She holds a number of tertiary qualifications in art, including a Bachelor of Fine Arts – University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg.

Her Awards include:

2010                  Finalist, Nillumbik Prize (VIC)
2009                  First Prize, Pivot Group Exhibition – Red Earth Gallery (VIC)
2008                  Finalist, Nillumbik Prize (VIC)
1989                  First Prize, RSPCA Art Show (VIC)

This demonstration sure to be inspiring.
