January to May is huge here on the South Coast. Christmas and the school holidays is followed by various festivals and Australia Day holiday, then Easter when we have a big influx of people with holiday houses & visitors, then there’s the Oyster Festival in Narooma and the River of Art in May with many art related activities. This all happens because the weather is usually fantastic and the water temperature is warm & swimmable.
Artisans Nest news is that we have some new members and we have reluctantly given up the rooms at the back of the Gallery which we were trying out as a workshop space. Too many of our members, though happily capable of running workshops, prefer to spend more time creating works for the Gallery, which you can see when you visit. The Dairy Shed next door has renovated and now sells delicious icecream & they have created a new path which goes right past our door. We the members of Artisans nest have decided to concentrate on the production of our art & have more exhibitions. Our first, in line with the River of Art this year (17th -20th May), will be Revamping the Blues. Make a point of visiting the shop & checking it out!
