From the President

“The beginning is the most important part of the work.” (Plato)

Hi CNVAS Member!



On behalf of your newly elected executive I’d like to thank you for your participation in our past exhibits, workshops, fairs, murals and socials and invite you to re-engage with us as we begin another year together as members of the Central Newfoundland Visual Arts Society (CNVAS), one of the longest serving, visual arts groups in our province.

Your executive will be meeting over the summer to plan our society’s programming for this executive’s two-year mandate with a view towards future CNVAS endeavours. You will find contact information for your executive members elsewhere in this newsletter and I’m encouraging you to make contact with either of us if you have an idea or request you’d like us to consider at this time. Indeed, please feel free to contact me or any of our executive members at any time to offer suggestions or to discuss CNVAS matters.

I’d like to take this time to thank our new Past President, JoAnne Maeck, and her executive for their dedicated service over the last two years. I’d also like to thank the members of our new executive for their willingness to commit to working together on your behalf for this term. I am looking forward to seeing where the coming months will take us!

Do make the most of our limited Newfoundland summer. Paint, draw, photograph, make prints, sculpt, etc. … and take time to re-energize yourself for the fall.

‘See you at the fall general meeting!
