August 2020 is like no August we have ever experienced! I think most of us had hoped that all this virus drama would be over by now, or at least on the way out. Sadly it is still with us and poor Melbourne is feeling the brunt of it. Any of you in Victoria reading this blog – my heart goes out to you – I have just heard that you have Stage 4 restrictions. If you are artists or into art in any way, I encourage you to play with pencils, pens, paint and try to get into another ‘head space’.
By the way, I would be very happy to have any of you who need to while away an hour to join my Zoom class – we have a lot of fun!
Tuesday Zoom classes 10 -11am
Note that Zoom classes are recorded, so if you book and pay, you will still have access to the class to view later. We cover a variety of topics, it is interactive, so there is plenty of opportunity for Q and A, usually a brief exercise and a powerpoint with information giving on the topic. $20 per class or $40 for a block of four classes. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll send you the link to the class and the bank transfer details.
What else is happening in August 2020?
Well, at Lennox Arts Collective we will be having work by Featured Artist June Hoffman on display from the 14th August for 2 weeks.
At The Field ARI, Murwillumbah there will be an exhibition ‘Ordinary Love’ featuring some of our favourite local artists including our own Narelle Bretherton, Sharon McIlwain and also long time supporter Trish Tait and one of our recent exhibiting artists, Judy Oakenfull. It is on from12 to 26th August.
Do you find that life has a wonderful way of coming back to you out of the blue?
I sometimes wonder what happens to my artworks when they leave me – in fact, people often ask if I feel sad to sell them.Actually, I keep the ones I love and am happy to send the others to a good home. Recently I had the good fortune to have been sent a couple of photos of my babies in their new homes.
Well, that was quite an adventure – trying to navigate my new site format! I do hope it works.
I have also been making some videos, here is my latest………
