PRESIDENT’S EDITORIAL
Our Christmas party was a
huge success with well over 60
people enjoying themselves.
We were welcomed by young
Bella who sang Happy Christmas songs in the foyer and
Santa made an appearance to
check if anyone had been
naughty.
June Hordern gave us a Comedy show that had us all in
stitches.
Sadly Joy Hobbs passed on.
She was one our well known
members and will be missed
but never forgotten.
Frank Wu passed on 5 years

Gift Shope
You wil see that the ‘Gift Shop”
has been moved to the area
where is was meant to be in the
first place, and now the persons
on duty can keep there eyes on it
making sure that the cards etc are
paid for.
If you are painting a small canvas
for this section, please adhere to
the size. No bigger than 25cm in
either direction, this is including
the frame. Priced from $5 up to
$100 in multiples of $5.
Artist’s Name, the Title, and Price
clearly on the back and of course
ready to hang.
Cards must also have the Artist’
name clearly displayed so as you
can be paid.
AND DON’T FORGET
The Yellow consignment form
must be filled out for all that is for
sale in the Gift Shop
THE HANGING FEE
As most are aware, the hanging fee has reverted back to
the $5 per painting as it was.
The previous fee of $5 for the
2 paintings proved to be not
feasible, however it was worth
a try. If you don’t try out some
things you would never know
if they would work for you.
In this case it was a negative
result and that means it was
not a good thing for you or the
gallery as a whole.
