The 2016 Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show

The 2016 Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show was held at the Carlton Exhibition buildings from Wednesday 16th March to Sunday the 20th March.

If you have missed this years show don't despair, start paitning for next year. There is no limit to how many paintings you can enter and it is such a great opportunity for our members to exhibit and hopefully sell their work. Remember that when you submit paintings for exhibiting and upon volunteering for a session during the show you will receive two free tickets to the Show.

After another successful year we can't wait to exhibit next year. Watch out in the newsletters for further updates

Future direction of TBDA

At the 2011 AGM it was decided that it is not viable to keep running workshops on a regular monthly basis. We will instead be running 2-3 full weekend workshops during the year with guest teachers as well as our annual Christmas workshop and lunch.

The main interest over the last several years has been with the exhibiiting of painings at the International Flower and Garden Show, which has been made relatively easy for the members to sell and exhibit their artwork and has been a very successful venture.

True Blue is grateful for all the support shown by it's members and will continue to provide a support and encouragement for our members through our aforementioned activities. In the near future we will also be providing a space on our website for our members to sell their artwork to the greater community and will be looking into other ways our members can stay in touch regularly online.
