Show & Tell
Wednesday 24 July.
A warm invitation to all members and friends to join us for the next Show & Tell.
With each successive Show & Tell more members have attended - the word is getting around - the home-made cakes are delicious but the art and the conversations are even better. The last Show & Tell for 2018 was a full house. Show & Tell will be on in the Studio at Hawthorn.
Details of the presenters for July will be available soon.
Our presenters for May were
Ede Horton trained first in stained glass and then turned to casting. Her work is included in the Parliament House collection and has been awarded here and in the USA. Ede is a storyteller focussing on personal and cultural identity as well as emotional vulnerability.
In the glass studio, lost wax process is the principal technique Ede employs. A one-off plaster silica mould is hand built over the wax form. The wax is steamed out of the mould and placed into the kiln so the glass blanks can flow from a reservoir into the mould. On other occasions, a wax or clay sculpture has a master mould made from rubber silicon to replicate the work again.
The next project or exhibition is always the inspiration that consumes her time. Ede Horton joined HAS to improve her life drawing skills and considers her fellow artists to be a very supportive group of local people. She will share her experience and insights into her unique work with us as a featured presenter at Show & Tell.
Jane-Frances Tannock will often take a number of starts before a painting will appear.Once underway it usually takes four to five sessions to complete. A limited palette and limited detail create restrained designs of landscapes, figures and still lives. Jane-Frances studied painting and fine art history. After a long break, she has returned to painting, with solo and group shows. Jane-Frances has been a finalist in the Rick Amor Self-Portrait Prize and the Nillumbik Art Prize.
Mimmo Cozzolino has had a 30+ year career as a designer before retiring and turning to art for inspiration. For us, he will share his fascination for capturing images with photographic process. He is especially drawn to images of the everyday - the ephemeral and the incidental. Items and moments are captured and reproduced with unusual techniques, combining drawn, painted and photographic images processed digitally. The results are extraordinary in their colour and focus. Mimmo joined HAS about 3 years ago to keep up his life drawing practice. He introduced the HAS Show & Tell series in 2018 to provide members an opportunity to show their work to others in a relaxed atmosphere over a cup of tea.
