Our Annual Potluck July Meeting
Once again, the EAA met in Charlton at the home of Berdina Beaven for our July meeting. We caught up with news during a social time, then enjoyed a delicious potluck supper before holding our regular business meeting. Reports from various committee heads were given and discussion took place regarding the upcoming fall Fair booth and the Open Door Studio Tour. Members are asked to contact Suzanne Burke-Lalande re. the Fair and Berdina Beaven about participation in the Studio Tour.Below is a slideshow of pictures from the day.
The Cobalt Artist Colony 2014
Nine members of the EAA participated in this year's Cobalt Artist Colony. We were lucky that it wasn't as hot as it often is, and we also avoided the rain when we were painting en pleine air at several picturesque Cobalt sites. Our instructor, John David Anderson (check out his site at johndavidanderson.ca) was a very patient and inspiring teacher to a great group of artists who proved to be at all different levels of experience. "NO DETAILS! NO SMALL BRUSHES!" became our mantra, along with "USE JUICY COLOURS!" Below are some pictures from the colony. I hope to add more shortly
A Place Remembered
Our annual EAA show was a great success. The gallery room at the Museum was very attractive with our 24" by 24" canvases. The reception for the show was held on Sunday, July 6. Thank you to convenor Lionel Venne for his work on this event and to Cal Knight for his work on the poster, the name cards, etc
. Below are pictures from the event.
Our Annual Road Trip
On May 31, members of the EAA participated in our annual spring road trip. Lionel had planned out our route in advance, and after meeting at the Mall in New Liskeard to carpool, we headed out to Lorrainville ( to the art shop and gallery), and also had lunch in a lovely little restaurant. We drove next to Ville Marie to view the International Miniature Show, in which several of our members had art displayed. We visited a cheese factory on route and next drove to Notre Dame de Nord where we spent time in the fabulous Fossil Museum. Many thanks to Lionel, and to all who came on the trip. It was a great time.
