Draw and Shoot is a special group exhibition coming to the Hammond and McCubbin Galleries at the historic Victorian Artists Society (VAS) Building this August.
Held from Thursday 6 August to Monday 17 August 2015, this FREE exhibition showcases the creative talents of members of U3A Melbourne City, Australia's first University of the Third Age. "This event demonstrates how the U3A learning environment encourages people to explore their creative aspirations, providing an opportunity to display their works in public", said U3A Melbourne City President, Jill Thompson.
The exhibition will display a wide variety of subjects, styles and themes: students of the Botanical Art course will present illustrations and paintings in graphite, coloured pencil and watercolour, while students of digital photography courses will present street, landscape, portrait, macro, still life and garden photography.
The exhibition will be opened by renowned writer, photographer and broadcaster Terry Lane.
"We are celebrating our 30th anniversary throughout 2015 and Draw & Shoot is just one of a series of events that celebrate the multitude of ways in which U3A makes life so much more interesting after a life of work" says Jill.
The exhibition is supported by Michaels Camera Video & Digital and RACV.
Entry to the exhibition is FREE.
It will be open to the public from Thursday 6 August to Monday 17 August 2015, from 10.00am to 4.00pm weekdays and 1.00pm to 4.00pm at weekends.
The Victorian Artists Society (VAS) Building is located at 430 Albert Street, East Melbourne.
