Special thanks to Dee Jackson
Special thanks to Dee Jackson for her KAS representation at the Combined Art Societies of Sydney. Dee represents our society throughout the year at CASS meetings and in organising the annual “Art of Sydney” exhibit. This exhibit is a significant logistical exercise, firstly the receiving, selecting and judging of the works at Bankstown a few weeks before the exhibit, then individually bubble wrapping each work for storage, than truck container transportation to and set-up at Darling Harbour, along with the required screens, lights, cables and exhibition support equipment. Being also the CASS Publicity Officer, Dee gives a significant amount of her time on our Society’s behalf.
Thank You Dee !!
