Greetings all, after a very adventurous year, its back to working as a fulltime artist, travelling around the south of New Zealand to the windy raw places, the places we drive by, because it’s too cold to get out of the car.
The ‘Shape of things to Come’ at Gallery De Novo in September just passed was an important exhibition for me in that the mastectomy changed the way I work both mentally and physically. In this show, to bring another dimension to the work, I linked the subject with the area connected to it, eg. Early sailing ships in the Otago Harbour. Also the show illustrates my continuing fascination with my art n mind shapes, this time including ceramic work on the subject of cows and what happens to the environment.
Painting Workshops I’m involved in coming up are Rhododendron Festival, Painting around Lawence, Art in the Gardens at Roxbrough and lots of school residencies. Including Snail Mail postcard exhibition to be held in November at Macandrew Intermediate School. The womens brain injured art group supported by CARA continues to be ongoing.
Have a happy summer…Janet
