With less than a week left until our next OMMA members’ meeting on September 11th, I hope that as many of you as possible can come out to view your thoughts, hopes, and wishes for the coming year.

We would really like to be holding more exhibitions and workshops but need to know if this is what YOU want. We need input and communication. There are no stupid answers! Someone may suggest something that doesn’t work out but that may nudge someone else into another suggestion, a different path to follow. The Phoenix will rise again, with your help.

We’d also love to see you bring in a new art piece that you’ve been working on since our last meeting. If the ideas ‘dry up’ (I DO hope not) we will have something to talk about and enjoy.

If you’d like something to drink (eg tea or coffe, soft drinks) please bring along a travel mug to suit your taste.
Meetings after September will be back at the Seniors’ Centre at the Nepean Sportsplex wher we will again have the use of the kitchen.

New members are, of course, always welcome!

See you on September 11th!

Our January 9 Meeting
7:00 to 9:00 PM
Studio 10, Nepean Creative Arts Centre, 35 Stafford Road, Bells Corners

A presentation by OMMA member Patricia Kenny.

Experience as Raw Material

Transformative experiences are universal to the human condition; interwoven in our lives as life-altering events. Drawing inspiration from her own experiences as raw material, Patricia expresses in vibrant abstract works themes of vulnerability, survival, resilience and rebirth. In this upcoming talk in January at the OMMA meeting, Patricia will talk about her inspiration and process, showing examples from a recent body of work exploring these themes.
