Meeting August 2016

Date – Sunday 7 August 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 Julie Goldspink, who will be working in watercolours. Julie has exhibited widely in New South Wales and Victoria, and is currently based in Blairgowrie.

Julie describes her approach to painting as follows:

” … works in the area of traditional media but does a lot of experimenting in the area of mixed media, while she is probably best known for watercolours. She likes to describe herself best as a realist impressionist and doesn’t like to be governed by one style, medium or subject. Watercolours are wet into wet technique.”

“Art is an addiction for me that never wanes,” Julie says. “I hope to be able to enjoy painting and exhibiting for the rest of my life.”
