SPAC NEWS

An Invitation to Participate

The Truth Gym Gallery in Victoria will host a juried 2022 Christmas Art Exhibition and SPAC members working in all media and disciplines are welcome to enter.

Submitted works will invite the viewer to explore a contemporary approach to the art in relation to the human body, its pliability and movement. Alternatively, work in various forms of artistic expression which study the wellbeing of the planet, and our environment will be considered. An emphasis will be given to works highlighting how our existence, survival and dependence are closely related to the evenness and strength of our planet.

Works will be exhibited from December 8, 2022 to January 10, 2023. The entry deadline will be November 23, 2022. More information about this exhibit can be found by clicking the Call for Artists.


‘Connect’ Exhibition

‘Connect’ presents work created by 3 artists who shared zoom painting and drawing sessions during the pandemic and have continued the weekly practise. This exhibition features work by Marilyn Chapman, Linda Darby, and Nancy Dolan. The sessions tapped into the subconscious mind to play and experiment with paints and drawing materials while chatting and enjoying the art making. 

The result is art born of observation and investigation—through creative play, each piece evolving in its own way. 

‘Connect’ invites the viewer to explore, challenging one to think, to provoke, even to disturb… We dip our brushes into our souls and paint.


The Show was a Success!

The SPAC 2022 Annual Spring Show was a huge success, with the event supported by our members and the public alike. The building came alive as old friends were able to greet one another in person once again! 

Thank you to Wendy Woollard, the Show Chair, and Lois Brown, our Co-Convener, along with their large team of volunteers for putting on an event to remember.  

Wendy’s focus, determination and vision for the future introduced online registration that reduced the workload on our volunteers, along with the introduction of barcodes for this year’s gift shop checkout which sped up transactions.  

To the committed team of volunteers: thank you for the amazing job you did making this all work, and, for the months of planning, I commend everyone’s dedication and effort in the face of uncertainty. 

It is worth emphasizing: this show was possible due to the hard work of a wonderful group of volunteers, so please consider joining your Board and/or show team next year, because, as they say, Together Everyone Achieves More! 

Thank you and congratulations to the SPAC Spring Show team!
