Keeping in touch in the Eurobodalla

Montague Art & Craft Society

MACS members line up to display their work at the invitation of the Narooma Library, and every two months the change-over of new art delights the public.

The new exhibition there and at the Whale Real Estate was chosen by artist Viv Bowe-Wood to showcase both art and craft.

The next Library Floor Talk is by artist and photographer Peter Robinson at 5pm, Wednesday, July 17 and Peter's work will be up from July 8-27.

There is also plenty on at the MACS Studios at 24 Glasshouse Rocks Road but the next plein air group meets at 10am, Tuesday at Lewis Island.

Bring your easels along and join in!

A workshop coming up on August 7 for 12 weeks is Books and Words run by Jennifer Hawkins, so book early at the Narooma Visitor Information Centre.

Non-members can attend for two free visits to our activity groups at the MACS Studios and for information, ring 4476 2881.
