The Art of Friends Lily - Susan Brookes

Lily – Susan Brookes

As we move into June, the Art Friends group is proceeding with their exhibition preparations.  Every Wednesday when we paint together we gather around the lunch table and discuss how things are going.

The rest of the day, every one is hard at work, developing their latest art works, in preparation for the exhibition.  Take a walk around the room with me.

Those exhibition details again are: 

Where: Gosford Regional Gallery Community gallery, 36 Webb St East Gosford

When: July Fri 17th – Tues 21st 

Opening : Saturday July 18th 2.30 pm and open daily 10am – 4pm

We will look forward to seeing you there.

Look For Next Thursday’s Post: What To Do With Older Work

I am going to interrupt our flow of posts this week to bring you an update on the Student Exhibition at Fires Creek Winery.  All went very smoothly on Friday, assisted by help from several of the students including Lorraine and Lorraine, Deborah, Stephanie, Gordon, Diane and my wonderfully helpful partner John. And if I have forgotten anyone, I do apologize as my brain has gone to mush! I was up till 2 am this morning printing labels and all that other stuff that one has to do before an exhibition.

I think today gave many of the students a good insight into how much is actually involved in hanging a show, that one never really sees. From putting blue tak dots on the bottoms of the paintings to making sure that they all look good together. The latter can be quite a challenge when you are hanging a show that has many different sizes and styles of art.

Still all was done in a timely fashion and the show looks great.

We had an article in the paper last week …. and I did a radio interview with a local radio station arts reporter – Meredith Gilmore from Coast fm963 that went to air on Sunday night. So it’s been a very busy week.

The opening was Sunday afternoon and we had a great crowd turn out for it.  The show was opened by Fiona Crain from International Community Advocates – a local charity which supports women and children fleeing domestic violence.  The aim of  The Strong Women Project is to practically assist women and children with new essentials and help them on their way to establishing a new life.
