The Alex Munro Library
When you next visit our studios, take time to look at the plaque unveiled to honour our much loved late member, Alex Munro. The plaque was unveiled by Alex’s sister-in-law, Kathleen Munro, during our end of year Christmas party. It officially names our extensive collection of art books as THE ALEX MUNRO LIBRARY.
Alex was a much loved and important part of the fabric of Peninsula Arts for many years. She simultaneously held the positions of Vice President, Committee Member, Librarian and Class secretary. Alex was also a Peninsula Arts Society Life Member. In between, she found time to attend art classes and write articles for the Peninsula Arts newsletter. There is no doubt she was in the top echelon of volunteers and organisers.
Alex was an extremely strong and truly inspirational woman. Her incredible strength throughout her protracted illness was amazing. She belonged to the category of those who believe that “if a job is worth doing, it is worth doing well”. Nothing slipped passed her. Exacting standards and high expectations were the order of the day, but she expected no less than what she gave.
We miss her and remember her fondly.
