  • Who would have thought we were, once again, viewing from home! Having got the hang of lockdown, my parents, my art loving friend and I arranged afternoon tea and shared the art via Zoom across the suburbs of Patterson Lakes, Chadstone and Elsternwick. Times may change but fine art endures – loved it. Natasha
  • It is my great pleasure to offer thanks and sincere congratulations to all members of TMPS for your online only 103rd annual exhibition. My enjoyment and admiration from four complete ‘tours’ , even without the added benefit of physical , up close viewing of brushwork,  are encouraged. The exhibition has provided me with  such a welcome diversion from the gloom of isolation under lockdown restrictions. I seem to have been metaphorically rewarded with your ‘music’ for the eyes. Andy O.
  • The exhibition was wonderful and inspiring, all artists presenting amazing works. I look forward to a time when we can view them all n person. Until then, it was great to be able to see it online. Stay safe and well. Teresa

  • I have once again  looked at all these  wonderful  paintings.  I have viewed them few times over the fortnight and enjoyed them each time.

    – Lesley.
