The 5x7 Art Prize is a very popular event held by the Hobsons Bay Art Society Annually. There is a lot of work that goes into setting up the exhibition by members each year including helping out on registration days, mounting the entries on to the panels for display, volunteering to sit in the gallery plus many other behind the scenes jobs that make it possible. Thank you to all members for your time and support that make this wonderful exhibition possible. And of course thanks to all the artists that contributed their work. Please see some photos in the slideshow below showing some of the set up and some people enjoying viewing the exhibition.
During the lockdown we experienced due to Covid the Arts Society had to think outside the square and managed to provide a couple of wonderful demonstrations via zoom for our members. Below is the write up from the Ben Winspear portrait demonstration taken from the September edition of the Pelican's Palette.
12 eager Watercolour artists attended Woods Street Arts Space to participate in HBAS’s workshop with Ted Dansey on Saturday.
Focusing on drawing a scene as well as painting it in, many new skills were learned or honed on the day with 2 scenes completed. Thanks Ted for sharing your knowledge and skills!
