CASS Art of Sydney Volunteer needed

Hello MTAS Members,

Happy New Year for 2020. We hope that you are all safe and doing ok in the extreme conditions we have going on at the moment.

As you know we have the CASS Art of Sydney Exhibition coming up at the end of the month. Those who entered need to deliver this Friday 10th January to Richmond Art Supplies between 9.30am – 5.30pm.

Volunteer Needed: We also need another person with a car to help drive the paintings down to Bankstown this Saturday 11th Jan, 9am from Richmond Art Supplies for the delivery and selection day. This person will need to help load paintings into their car and then drive to Bankstown. Then stay to help lift and move paintings into their sections for the selection process. The day usually goes until around 4-5pm.

Please consider helping, especially if you have works in this show. MTAS member representatives so far are Deidre Morrison and Pat Latta. We may also have David Livingstone helping but we need another with a car please. The person does not have to necessarily be a member of MTAS to assist if any member knows of someone willing to help and could also attend with a member (partner, family member or friend).

Please contact Kym Morris on 0413 809 685 or reply to this email info@mtas.com.au

Thanks very much,
MTAS Committee
