ASOC reopens its Studio and plans for Exhibitions

Our studio at M16 is now open and welcoming workgroup members. The studio has been quiet for four months, and for its reopening special measures for social distancing and hygiene are now in place. Seven of our 11 workgroups have decided to start their sessions again, with the other four looking to reassemble in October. It is good to see that members now back in our studio are embracing the creative opportunities possible again.

We have now started the planning of our Spring Exhibition, which will again be held in the expansive and heritage setting of the Fitters Workshop. It will take place from 12-22 November.

More opportunities are developing for our members to exhibit their work in a dedicated space at the fascinating new venue of Dirty Janes in Fyshwick. It is attracting good numbers to its 90 different small stores, selling a wide range of bric-a-brac, antiques and art. ASOC will be presenting both group and individual exhibitions in an ever-changing program of works. Our first show will be up soon.

The ASOC AGM will take place via Zoom on Sunday 30 August. A dedicated section of our website will provide you with details and reports for this important event. A meeting that allows us to take stock and refresh our operations in these challenging times.

ASOC looks to the next few months with positive anticipation. We hope that you are continuing your art practice, even if you have not been able to work with your colleagues over the past months.

More details about these developments will be placed on our website, through regular email updates and on facebook. Keep a lookout!
