In Memoriam

It is with great sadness the LMS acknowledges the passing of our long-time friend and artist, Gary Cassidy.

For over a decade, Gary had been respected and liked by the LMS community and by artists groups where he drew. His artworks are colourful and full of contrast which created dynamic pictorial representations.

A stalwart at the LMS model’s workshops and Sunday life drawing at Princes Hill Community Centre, Gary made models feel at ease, whether they were anxious and just starting out, or confident and experienced.

He will be greatly missed by all who have known him. He was generous with his time and kind towards others, especially those in our society who were vulnerable as he also was living on the fringe. I will never forget the times I have gotten to know Gary, spent with him and shared with him.

News

September Updates
Our constitution has been updated. New version is available here.
2019 Annual general meeting minutes are available here.
Various dates for 2020 have been updated on our events page.

Update to minimum rates
The minimum rate for drawing increased to $40.00 per hour, for a minimum of two hours, as of 1 July 2019.

In no way do we think this reflects the true value of modeling, and it simply represents the bare minimum our members will accept. We continue to encourage models to charge what they feel is fair for their skills and the venues ability to pay.
