Tuesday 27th February 2024 Guest artist for November: Tony Belobrajdic Christine Webb is a multi-disciplinary artist who divides her time between her studios in
The champagne flowed and the smell of freshly baked pizza filled the air for the Lane Cove Art Society’s November (2023) Christmas meeting. Award-winning artist Tony Belobrajdic was the guest artist for the evening. Watercolour was the focus of the demonstration.
She is a teacher at the Royal Art Society and ArtEst. The first half of Mellissa’s presentation outlined the initial steps she follows when creating an acrylic painting. The second half of the evening centred on a second painting that needed the final layers to be added. By taking this approach not only did the audience get an insight into the creation of two artworks but it showed all the steps involved in Mellissa’s painting technique.

Liz is a multi media artist. Liz talked about her sailing adventure to New Caledonia and Fiji travelling over a thousand nautical miles with her husband. Her artwork was inspired by her interactions with the sea, land and people of this region. Art was the key to enriching her interaction with the local village people.
Jan's work comes from the connection she has to a landscape using all her senses to express the emotion and feel of a place and then translates that into her artwork.
Oil pastel is Phoebe Stone's medium. Drawing has always featured somewhere in her life. What made this presentation a stand out was the authenticity of the free mark making from this self-taught artist.
As artists how our art is presented is important. The June general meeting of the Lane Cove Art Society centred on how best to photograph an artwork. Linda Gleeson, one of our very hard working members demonstrated how to use an iphone to photograph an artwork. In the latter part of the presentation, Annie Pavlovic our energetic President complemented Linda’s talk by discussing the importance of varnishing and glazing an artwork to produce a professional result before the artwork is photographed.
During the May general meeting of the Lane Cove Art Society Rachel Carroll provided a interesting demonstration, showing us how many ways there are to make art and how many possible materials and tools we all have at home waiting to be explored. She has worked with wax, as an encaustic artist, a technique that dates back to 800 BC. Rachel has been painting for about 20 years and teaches art, currently teaching acrylics at Roseville Art Centre.
It is rare for artists to share so fully their approach to making marks. The Lane Cove Art Society (LCAS) invited award winning painter Peta Dzubiel as their guest demonstrator for the March general meeting (2023).
Abstract botanical artist Ros Gervay was the guest artist for the February meeting (2023) of the Lane Cove Art Society.
