WarningA call to artists (all regions)

Are you interested in having your art work showcased, digitally mapped and projected onto key Picton buildings as part of the IlluminARTe Wollondilly Festival (April 11)?

Don't miss the opportunity!

No absolute guarantees that your image or whole of image will be used, however, if you wish to provide a high resolution picture (300 DPI) of one or more of your art works (painting, printmaking, sculpture, drawing, photography) we will forward it to the Digital Projection team for their further consideration. (The team: Khaled Sabsabi, Jerome Pearce, David Kirkpatrick internationally and nationally recognised with awards).

You may choose to photograph a section of your artwork that you find interesting or send a pic of the resolved works and let the team decide what works best for the digital mapping and projection.

Deadline: Thursday 26 February 2015 to provide your images.

If you enjoyed VIVID in Sydney, here is your chance to see your artistic endeavours similarly projected within the region of Wollondilly, Picton. A very, very exciting opportunity.

Maisie’s Choir and the Kitchen Band

Voices Needed !!

Southern Tablelands Arts is very excited to announce the commencement of a new choir for older residents in the Yass Valley. We are calling on local residents over the age of 60 to brush off your vocal chords and join the choir.

Maisie's Choir and the Kitchen Band is being kick started with funding from the NSW Government's Family and Community Services Creative Ageing Fund. The project is one of only three projects funded across regional NSW by the Department in a pilot program. It is for the over 60's in Yass Valley to create a choir and percussion band with domestic objects sourced from kitchens and toolsheds. If you remember making a kazoo with a comb and cigarette papers or someone creating a fiddle with a saw then you get the idea.

No experience needed, open to over 60's, free!! Morning tea provided. Come along and join the fun!

When: Tuesdays 9.30am – 11.30am
Where: Yass Valley Senior Citizens Club, Rossi St, Yass

Contact: Giselle at Southern Tablelands Arts on 4821 7028 for more information
