President's Report: This was, as usual, a month that had fewer planned activities for MACG members. Anita, (Vice President), and I attended a function at the Maleny High School where the High School Staff thanked the many Maleny Community Groups for their contribution of library books. These books are donated in lieu of wreaths on Anzac Day. The High School organises the purchase of books, which are paid for by the Community Groups, wrapped and then placed on the local cenotaph instead of a wreath.

Artist of the Month - June
Jennifer Eurell
Jennifer Eurell joined the Maleny Art and Craft Group about two years ago after she moved to Mapleton from Rockhampton where she was a member of the Central Queensland Contemporary Art group.  She majored in printmaking for her Diploma of Visual Art at CQ TAFE, and recently completed a degree in Fine Art through Curtin University.

Her current  Artist of the Month exhibition at MACG shows her interest in different mediums with works that include, acrylic painting, cold wax and oil painting, and linocuts combined with hand stitching and watercolour accents. Her interest is in pattern and repetition with themes from nature, or more feminine aspects using images of clothing. Some of her work also references the time she circumnavigated the world in a yacht, and in particular her visit to the Galapagos islands.
