Rachel MacDonald has enabled us to setup an opportunity to paint a beautiful Ghanaian woman in full African dress. This is free to all OWS members (donations welcome for the model) although space is somewhat limited and RSVP’s are requested. No instruction, but a chance to experiment with your own ideas, while working alongside other OWS artists. Several tables are available or you can bring your own easel. No critical judgments allowed, simply an occasion to play together!
You are most cordially invited to attend our upcoming Ottawa Watercolour Society Annual General Meeting.
WHEN: Thursday, November 23, 2017 from 6:00-9:00 pm
WHERE: The meeting room in St. Basil’s Catholic Church, 940 Rex Avenue, Ottawa, ON K2A 2P7.
(The entrance to the church parking lot is on the east side of Maitland Avenue just north of the Queensway.)
Come to hear what has happened during the past year and the plans for the upcoming year; speak with the members of the Society Executive; vote on matters affecting you as a member of the Ottawa Watercolour Society (OWS); renew old friendships; and, make new ones.
The first half part of the evening is set aside for members and visitors to socialize followed by Society business. There are some important items to be raised requiring your vote. We hope as many members as possible can attend and participate.
The Society will be providing some finger food and beverages but you are invited to bring finger food of your choice and whatever beverage (ie. wine) you may wish to include. Please don’t forget that members are invited to bring one watercolour painting that they have done, on any surface, for everyone to view, enjoy and vote on the painting you like the most. The painting that gets the most votes wins $100 for the artist!
Please advise Rick Sobkowicz ( email@example.com ) if you intend to attend and the number of people coming so that we can set up the required number of tables and chairs.
