The Gallery and Displays were very popular and we had great demonstrations in Art, Craft and Pottery.
Thanks to all our members who volunteered their time to put together all the displays, attend on the day and to demonstrate their creative talents. What a bunch of very talented people we have at BACG.
Especially we need to thank Irene, our Tresurer, Anne, our Secretary and Anne, our Pottery Co-ordinator, for creating the beautiful displays and our new Gallery. Everything came together perfectly and we had fantastic weather (for the first time in a few years) so people were out and about today and dropped by to find out all about BACG.
Below are some photos from the day - enjoy!
A display was set up in the rooms used for the Blacktown Show to show off the work of our members in Art, Children's Art, Craft and Pottery. We also had a display of our history, showing art and craft since the 1970s...
Our Craft group were demonstrating patchwork and quilting in the Craft room. They also had a display of some UFOs - unfinished objects. The Craft stall was set up in the kitchen of the hut with a lot of goodies made by members. Nicole decided to enjoy some of the autumn sun we were blessed with today.
In the Children's Art room, there was a Powerpoint display of all the Children's art works from the last year or so and three of our artists worked on current artworks.
In the Pottery room, our tutors, Carolyn and Ilona demonstrated on the wheels, and several of our students came along to work for the day as well.
This year, for the first time we had a Gallery, exhibiting the best pieces of our members' work. The room was set up beautifully and really showed those pieces well.
Also in the Gallery was a display showing the work BACG did for the ABC TV show myf warhurst's 'nice'. We were involved int he episode about art and created pieces inspired by a painting from the 1970s called 'Wings of Love.'
We hope you have enjoyed a stroll through our Open Day photo gallery - next time, we hope you'll come along and join us!
