Monthly Demonstration Meeting 8th October – Carol Gill – Mixed Media Collage

Monthly Demonstration Meeting 8th October
Carol Gill – Mixed Media Collage

We are very happy to have Carol Gill with us to demonstrate Mixed Media Collage at our next monthly meeting on Tuesday, 8th October, 7:30pm at the Stan Stevens Studio, Deerubbin Centre, George St, Windsor.

Carol began her art career as a Graphic Designer spending her early years in advertising. Developing her art practise in this era meant the icons of the 70s-80s like Brett Whitely, Ken Done and Jenny Kee also heavily influenced her art.

In later years she rediscovered her art through further study and workshops where she was introduced to mixed media and collage by Judith White.

Carol uses a wide range of traditional Korean mulberry papers or “hanji”, tissue papers, water colours and gouache and loves the way they respond and react with one another.

She’s captivated by the textures and organic materials of the hanji papers and their relationship to the natural landscape from which they have been sourced. She enjoys bringing the beautifully delicate yet strong qualities of hanji to a very contemporary Australian theme.

To see more of Carol’s work visit www.carolgillgraphics.com.

Both Members and Non Members are welcome to join us for our meetings to view an inspirational artist at work each month, as well as the opportunity to enjoy networking with like-minded art enthusiasts.

Entry is $5 for MTAS members and visitors (includes supper)

Please remember to park outside the car park due to early closure.

For inquiries phone Annmaree 0429 234 873

Look forward to seeing you there.
