Kyneton is a pretty, regional town in Central Victoria, an old gold mining area. It is also the home of the Old Auction House, which is hosting a group exhibition I am involved in. It is called ‘Uncoloured’, and you will not be surprised to know that the works are all black and white.
There will be 7 of us exhibiting.
I love the little glimpses of art on this flier, little teasers!
I will show you the seven feathers I am exhibiting. You will have already seen them if you get the letter from my studio. And if you don’t get the letter, why don’t you sign up, so that you can hear about the things happening in my artistic world?
I decided that pairs of feathers would be a good idea. So two guinea fowl feathers from my latest playing with ink and masking fluid.
Two tatty feathers, created with ink pens.
Two feathers with the fine lines drawn in ink. (They are created on the same type of paper, despite one looking grey. That’s my photographic skills!)
And a single, realistic feather, created in pencil.
All works will be for sale. I hope to sell some, of course, but I am happy to be part of this. It has been just far enough outside my comfort zone to be doable, but to push me into something different for my art. I had to give myself a little nudge, not a huge shove!
I dropped the drawings into the gallery today and received further good news from the curator ~ I have been accepted into another group exhibition in May. This one is called ‘Not your usual canvas’, and my sewing on paper art works fit the bill!
So, if you are able to visit Central Victoria, check out the exhibition. Lots of lovely places for lunch too!
