“HANGING AROUND” interim Newsletter...... July /August 2013
If you are thinking you have not received the normal July/August edition of “Hanging Around”, you are not alone! Unfortunately I had an ‘accident’ (fell down a small step), which resulted in several broken bones, a stint in hospital and a lengthy recovery period currently underway. The AUGUST/SEPT edition will be as normal around 20th August 2013.
Keeping you up-to-date with happenings at KAPUNDA COMMUNITY GALLERY Inc. here is the news re the CURRENT EXHIBITION, with thanks to KCG Ex. Coordinator JENNY BASTIANS.
45 – 50 people attended the Opening of “CELEBRATING SA” by the Minister for Communities and Social Inclusion Mr Tony Piccolo on Sunday July 28th. His speech reinforced KCG’s worth and place in our community and that of all volunteers in our society.
Thank you to our two Judges Julieanne Pulford and Robert Bader for the resultant Award Winners –

HELEN RYAN and SALLY GILES-DIEKMAN attended to the catering for the Opening – thanks to all for a great team effort and those who attended the Opening.
PHOTOGRAPHY and COMPOSITION WORKSHOP
Jill Bonner and Jenny Bastians will work together on this Workshop.
SATURDAY SEPT 28 - 9am to 3pm – Cost $10 - PLEASE BRING OWN LUNCH
Meet at the Studio upstairs in the Institute. Tea and coffee provided.
The Workshop will open with a cuppa and a ‘meet and greet’. Jill will start the day with photography. The 9am start will make the most of the morning light. The group will travel to “The Pines” where there are many opportunities for good landscapes.
After lunch Jenny will talk about the basics of good composition i.e. how to lay out your painting – (where things sit on the page, which is so important in photography and painting). Jill and Jenny will help to show you how you can use your own photos as references for your own art work....and what to do when things go wrong.
