The toys I drew – and in this post you can see them in their pre-sketched phase. They have since been watercoloured and painted but we will wait until after the exhibition has started, as so not to spoil the surprise for many who will be attending my exhibition ;). These toys as you can tell, are from an era gone by, vintage toys but still pre-loved
Well after many months of hard work, I have just about nearly finished the body of works. My aim was to do at least 15 works, and I have just about achieved that! 1 more to go and it will be 15 but I have also decided I would like to do 2 or 3 more drawings but in colour pencil by the beautiful Faber Castell series.
So far for the exhibition, I have done the artist statement, designed and printed the brochure, and now about to start the catalogue and frame the last of the artworks with matt framing. Ah if I had the funds I would get them framed with solid frames!
A sneak preview of what is happening in my art studio… you can see from the mess, how hard at work I have been… and enjoying it! 🙂
Tonight, I’m back on here to start my journey properly through blogging my art projects now that I have worked out how to use this WordPress thing!
What I bring here is some great news regarding the Urban Cow gallery exhibition. My exhibition is titled ‘Vintage is Good’ and focuses on vintage things and places and some with twists from my imagination, like imagine an old place abandoned and what would have happened to the place. Plus items from old days gone by. A sneak preview of some of my artworks that will be in the exhibition. I don’t want to reveal too much just yet….. The exhibition will open on 7th November with an opening night, wine and cheese provided starting at 6 pm and ends on 30th November.
Other good news is I won an arts grant to fund the exhibition (hire gallery costs, printing costs for invitations and catalogues and some framing) by Richard Llewellyn Arts grant so that is one more exciting piece of news. Further on, I have scored a great sponsorship of wines by Grant Burge Winery…. so a good month for me
