Natures Expression opened successfully at the Art Studios Gallery last Saturday the 6th of May and closes Today Sunday the 14th of May.
The opening was a great success with several of the artists selling work and a great crowd turned out to celebrate the opening with the artists.
Above you can see my painting Dauntless Resilience and the sculptural works are by Lisa McArthur-Edwards. Her works tell the story of man’s overbearing influence on the natural, sculpted forms of nature, comparing their ugliness with nature’s natural beauty.
The show was opened by celebrated artist and gallery owner of Me.Space Gallery in Sydney, Debbie MacKinnon. She gave an inspiring talk about our connection to nature and the way in which the various artists had approached the common theme of natures expression. Below is a lovely photo of Debbie with Lisa, after her opening speech. Thank you, Debbie, for your wonderful words and for taking the time to come all the way up from Sydney to open our show.
I would like to offer special congratulations to Kate Landsbury, who produced all the work she entered in this exhibition, in two weeks. What a mammoth effort Kate, we are all so proud of you and to be rewarded by several sales is an awesome thing. Well done!
Above we can see Kate pointing to her painting in the background which she had just sold! Below, Art Patrons are enjoying the exhibition.
As a final word, I would like to thank everyone who took time out of their day to come and view our works, Debbie MacKinnon for opening the exhibition, my fellow artists for their many and varied contributions to the exhibition, and Cathryn McEwen and the artists at the gallery who helped us hang the show and manned the sales and other bits and pieces on the day. You all contributed to our success and a great exhibition – thank you.
