Tonight sees the opening of Abstracted, an exhibition featuring 65 paintings by 9 artists from my abstract art workshops which I have been conducting over the past 12 months.
The top two paintings featured today will be in the exhibition.
I will post a report and some photos from the exhibition over the weekend.
It is a big ‘ask’ to expect anyone to complete a ‘serious’ painting during the course of a single day workshop. The emphasis is more about process than product, but I am pleased to report that some paintings were finished. At least the workshop provided a launching pad for the participants in future abstract exploits.
Yesterday I wrote my opening speech for tonight’s exhibition launch and it gave me time to sit back and reflect on what has been a most interesting and stimulating 12 month journey for me personally, not only as a teacher, but as an artist. I intend publishing the majority of my remarks in the exhibition report.
Yesterday I completed the hanging of my own work at Banjo’s Bakery, Kings Meadows, a suburb of Launceston. I have 6 coloured pencil drawings on display.
I haven’t had the time over the past 5 days to advance my latest drawing due to exhibition commitments. I intend though to put some time in today and tomorrow.
