Jason RobertsVictorian artist, Jason Roberts, has been painting professionally for over 20 years and his work has a distinct rural theme.

Jason has travelled throughout Greece, including Ithaca, to produce sketches of landscapes, animals and portraits of the local people in preparation for a major exhibition and book celebrating the rich historical, agricultural and culinary heritage of Greece. 

He is sponsored by Greek organisation AMALTHIA, a collective of breeders, academics and enthusiasts dedicated to the study and conservation of traditional Greek breeds of livestock. 

While on Ithaca, where there are no school art classes available, Jason volunteered his time to conduct workshops in Lefki, for local students. Part of the money raised from the 2016 Ithacan Philanthropic Society Centenary Gala Ball was used to purchase art supplies for these workshops.

The Ithacan Philanthropic Society is delighted to be featuring his artwork in our Silent Auction.

Join us for Open Day at 'the Club'

With the excitement that was generated by the Centenary of our Club, members have expressed the desire for the clubrooms to be open more often for members and their friends to come in and enjoy a casual chat with some good coffee! The Executive Committee has thus decided to initially open the clubrooms once a month as an Open Day on the first Thursday of the month, unless it is a Bingo Day when our Open Day will be the second Thursday.
 
The first Open Day will be Thursday 11 May from 11.30am at Ithaca House, Level 2, 329 Elizabeth Street, Melbourne. Click here to find a list of dates for both Bingo and Open Days.

Come in and have a coffee or tea and chat about everything Ithacan, the football, world events or anything that takes your fancy with your fellow members and their friends.
