FORG Events & News

A word from the President

A new President, a new Committee and thoughts turn to what the FORG do and why we do it.

From our Constitution, the Object of Association is to assist The Orange Regional Gallery in the promotion and fostering of art appreciation within the community of Orange and its district.

From previous planning exercises
• FORG’s main task is fundraising to support the Gallery’s purchase of significant art works
• Provide opportunity for members to meet socially with others who enjoy and make art and
• Provide opportunities to further understanding of art works, art movements and artists practice

Why do we do this? Is this still relevant to FORG in 2018? These questions are to be examined in a planning workshop for the Committee early in November where we will be looking at our role into the future.

Do you have a view? What do you like or not like about being a member of FORG? What can FORG do better for members? What are some new things FORG can do? How do we attract younger people to become members of FORG? Are there alternate/better ways to raise funding? Should Orange be a tourist art destination?

Do you have a view? I would love to hear from anyone who has any suggestions – please feel free to contact me
