The annual exhibition of art works by members of the Gisborne Artists' Society and the Pottery Group is eagerly anticipated by members of the community who await the opportunity to acquire art works by well established local artists. Opening night is always well attended, and museum staff members are kept busy placing red stickers by the works that have sold. Another feature of opening night is the animated groups of people clustered around the new art works, engaged in intense conversation.
In recent years there have been more works by younger artists who have submitted their work for the first time and this trend is likely to continue. This is testimony to the societies’ committee members who actively encourage new members and ensure that an active workshop programme is maintained.
The societies’ redevelopment plans for Lysnar House will ensure that the facilities continue to meet the needs of their increasing memberships. The societies are to be acknowledged for having introduced a selection process. Dick Calcott will again carry out his excellent work as selector this year.
