Lots of dedicated work by Clyne, Karen, Joan,  Lesley, Gayle, and Adrienne  paid off when the 2012 Mixed Media Class mounted their  Exhibition at the Yurara Art Gallery.
Cathy joined with them to display completed works, which illustrated varied Mixed Media techniques with great success. The show was enjoyed by many visitors, some of whom signed up for classes in the  New Year.

I don't know how he does it, but he always
manages to find new and interesting artists
to showcase on this amazing blog.
