Society’s mixed

media on show

Looking to get in some early

Christmas shopping? Then

head to the Northern Beaches

Art Society’s annual free exhibition

at the Avalon Recreation

Centre on Friday 12th to

Sunday 14th October, where

all works will be on sale.

The talented artists of the

NBAS cover all media – oils,

acrylics, watercolour, mixed

media and pastels – in both

contemporary and traditional styles. This is the 72nd year

they’ve exhibited.

This year’s exhibition judge is respected illustrator, painter

and educator Mike Golding, who will have the daunting task

of awarding the 1st, 2nd and 3rd prizes. All the entries will

also be in the running for the ‘Northern Beaches Council

Award’, as well as the ‘People’s Choice Award’, selected by

the viewing audience. Plus, a raffle for a beautiful painting

by the President June Rodden, will be held.

New members are always welcome to join the NBAS. Information

about the society will be available at the exhibition

or check out the website, where you can also download the

Nada’s studio open days

Acclaimed local painter

Nada Herman is opening

her home studio at Avalon and

exhibiting over three successive

weekends in October.

The colour and excitement

in Nada’s work reveals

her love of our area and the

beauty found within the bush,

marine life and beaches.

Thick brushes are a necessity

in her style, as well tins of

oil paints and a palette knife.

She says the palette knife creates

a fresh painterly quality

and is perfect for painting wet

over wet without the colours

becoming muddy.

“I adore painting beach

scenes – they are full of subject

matter with their lovely

bathers and the ever-moving

waves, seagulls and sailboats,”

she says.

Open at 62 Chisholm Ave,

Avalon from 10am to 5pm on

Oct 6-7, 13-14 and 20-21; more

info 0414 849 580.
