New ceramic space realised

WORTH THE WAIT: A new pottery shed will provide a venue for the creation of wonderful ceramic art and an exhibition to display it is on the cards.

RICArts has plenty to smile about! Hard slog and a positive team have all pitched in to build the now-functioning pottery shed.

We are lucky to have John Land to teach us how to use the pottery wheels and Janice Maxwell to guide us in creating shapes and glazing. A RICArts exhibition of our ceramics is coming soon.

Come and join the En Plein Air painting group led by Siobhan Demeester on Thursday, July 25 at Jock Kennedy Park at 9am. If you haven't met Siobhan, you'll adore her bubbly enthusiasm and gentle encouragement.

August 18 is Market Day at the Farm House Gallery Space at the end of Robert St, Russell Island and the surrounding gardens. Devonshire tea, scones, fresh cream and jam plus our institutional sausage sizzle are on the offering.

Sylvia Gillard's exhibition of artistic talents is in the Gallery Space from August 3 and finishing on Market Day, August 18.

Look out for our August article. We are announcing a surprise!

RICArts, a community-based organisation is currently offering patchwork and sewing on Monday mornings with Sylvia Gillard, professionally guided pottery workshops on Mondays and Fridays, painting on Tuesdays, craft on Wednesdays and mosaics on Thursdays. All sessions only $5 to attend.
