HAAT NEWSLETTER #25 February 2010


HAWKESBURY ARTISTS & ARTISANS TRAIL inc





Hello everyone and welcome to 2010.
We held our first meeting for the year last Saturday, 30th January at the Church Bar in Windsor. A change from the Stan Stevens room, and a bit of fun to start off the New Year.
In my last newsletter I mentioned that I thought 2010 would be an exciting year and already we have started the year off with some excitement with Sydney Weekender visiting our studios.
After some persistent encouragement, Taryn managed to get Channel Seven’s Sydney Weekender to visit the Hawkesbury to do a story on our trail. It was short notice, just 8 days but last Wednesday, 27th January Mike Whitney visited Christine Sullivan’s pottery, B&B and cafe at Kurrajong Hills, then Heather Rees’s studio at Glossodia and Taryn Malzards Old School House Studio at Grose Wold. We have been given the date of the 6th of March for the show to be aired.
We also have an exciting year ahead with the Bicentenary of the naming of Governor Macquarie’s Towns. Our own MACQUARIE’S FOOTSTEPS EXHIBITION and various others across the Hawkesbury, incl the Library, Museum, Regional Gallery and FOHacaRG Inc.
Happy 2010 to everyone,

Janet

HAAT EXHIBITION FOR MACQUARIE BICENTENARY

MACQUARIES FOOTSTEPS EXHIBITION – 9,10,11th April

The Bicentenary grant we received shall be used for an exhibition to commemorate the 2010 bicentenary of Macquaries Towns. We have arranged to have our MACQUARIE S FOOTSTEPS EXHIBITION in the CWA Cottage in Windsor .

If you intend to exhibit please let Leanne know. There will be a limit to the numbers of works and a limit to the size of work due to space constraints.
We shall also need volunteers to offer their time on a roster system to man the exhibition.
Set up will be on the 8th April and dismantle on 12th April.
Please make all work Hawkesbury inspired. Aboriginal Elder Aunt Edna Watson has kindly agreed to do the Welcome to Country on opening night. We very much appreciate her doing this as we know she has delayed a planned holiday to do this for us.

Thank you to Heather Rees who has donated a banner for this exhibition.
