Congratulations to all our Artists – we are so proud to take you to Italy and look forward to meeting you all in Fabriano in April ’19 if possible!

We are also keen to announce and have your participation to create –
an on-ground experience in Australia

An – ‘Australian Watercolour Muster’

– leading up to FabrianoInAcquarello – Italy 2020?

We are looking to encourage all Artists interested in Watercolour painting to join us here in Australia – so we are asking you:

  • What do you think this should look like?
  • Dates late 2019 that might suit you, and
  • Would you participate if we have this Event Annually – the goal would then be to select from the represented Artists here in Australia …. to …. represent us the next year as part of our Australian Delegation – to FabrianoInAcquarello – Italy 2020 !

We held our first ‘Public Consultation Meeting’ on the 21st January ’19 and will continue to keep you in touch!

Please share your thoughts with us and we will be happy to share more news – if you would like to join us!

    Looking forward to being involved in the Australian Watercolour Muster. Perhaps it could also include workshops & talks about exhibiting OS over a few days to encourage new artists in this media. Thus bringing more attention to the events both here and future FabrianoinAquarello interests. I’m happy to be a speaker & / or workshop artist.

      Hi Caroline – thanks for this I think when we are back from Fabriano this year it will be amazing to share the experience for sure – I will keep you to your Word!

      I will also add you to our register for Workshops – when we get closer to final planning we can work out what and who these will be …. but I am keeping a ‘Register of Interested Tutors/Demonstrators’ – so will add you to this – cheers and thanks Wyn

    Muster is a great idea.
    For exhib venue, Consider also RQAS gallery Petrie Terrace if it’s available as it is a relatively large gallery, well lit wall space, staff on duty, is affordable and is centrally located in Bris. Also, would there be possibilities at RNA EKKA buildings?
    My opinion – To attract and accommodate overseas artists, the convenience, transport and facilities and accommodation backup available in the a city is virtually essential. For outback experience, 1-3 day tours from Brisbane could be organized as an adjunct eg to Carnarvon Gorge, Warwick, Border Ranges etc (even Toowoomba would seem like outback to some visitors).

      Hi tony – thanks for your support last night coming to the 1st Planning Meeting – for the Australian Watercolour Muster – as you heard we threw around lots of ideas and at the next meeting we have to get down to tin tacks – 18th February 2019 – at the Church same as – cheers Wyn

    I’ll just jot down some thoughts/questions while they are on my mind.
    If the Muster is held in Brisbane there would be a greater number of artists to billet visiting artists!!
    Venue should be where artists can easily get public transport if they are not staying with a local artist.
    Maybe it could be held in more than one venue if the chosen isn’t large enough? Does the Italian Club have a large venue to be used as an exhibition space? Could the Watercolour Society rooms have a suitable exhibition space?
    The Art College at South Bank is nearby. Can their venue be an option?
    How many artists would be selected?
    A plein air half day be included. ‘Painting in the Park” Demonstrations. Workshops. Gallery trips

      Hi Pam – we are really looking forward to working on this in the new year – we have convened this meeting for 6.30pm on the 21st January ’19 at St Mary’s Parish Hall on Kangaroo Point and will have looked at several venues by then and talked with a number of people to have some information to lay on the table during the meeting – so would love to have you there is you can make it as well? We are also talking with FabrianoInAcquarello – organisers in Italy about activities and possible exhibition of their 10th Anniversary – Traveling Exhibition they are putting together after this years Event in Fabriano in April ’19 which you are coming to – so this could be exciting – especially if we have an Australian included in this!! Talk soon – to explore more ideas – cheers Wyn

    Looking forward to being at the meeting. What a great way to showcase and promote Australian watercolour artists! Being a ‘muster’, I wonder if the Australian Outback Spectacular venue would be a good place? It’s near the other theme parks on the Gold Coast. I have never been there myself, but it’s just a thought.

    Hello Wyn
    I think that the Australian Watercolour Muster is a great idea. Unfortunately I would not be able to participate but would like to suggest that the Muster take place somewhere that would encompass the Australian bush plus traditional Ozzie architecture. Perhaps a country town such as Toowoomba or Tenterfield. It would need to be big enough to offer accommodation or close enough to a larger town. Good Luck with all you are doing. Regards Marilyn
