Show & Tell
Wednesday 25 September
A warm invitation to all members and friends to join us for the next Show & Tell.
Hear from artists about why they make their art. Join in a conversation over a cup of tea - ask questions and look at examples each artist brings in to our Studio at Hawthorn. In the Basement, 360 Burwood Road Hawthorn (rear of the Town Hall).
Our presenters for September are
Judy Schrever gives us access to her world through her painting — a world filled with the pleasures of a harmonious life and the stillness of intimacy. Be they still-lives or landscapes, her paintings weave their quiet magic on the viewer locking one’s gaze onto their glistening surfaces. The essence of her works is a focus on the pleasures brought by our surroundings, the beauty of a shaft of sunlight refracted in a vase filled with flowers, of blushing fruit in a bowl, and peaceful, wooded hills at the end of day. Judy’s work is that of the true painter and reflects more than expert execution: we see respect for materials, of brush strokes lovingly applied to canvas, virtually sculpting the subject, and culminating in pictures that are much more than representations but draw the viewer into a world of quiet contemplation.
Graeme Galloway has been part of a Monday group at HAS for about three years. He is also part of a group of artists that meet up at various locations round Australia. These trips are usually week long intensives - Central Australia, Myponga, Wilsons Prom, Apollo Bay. For plein air work Graeme has a small portable kit and works on a small scale.
"I enjoy the fast changing light, shadows and shapes. I like the endless challenge to find language to simplify and condense the image down to a small painted panel.”
Graeme is presently on a trip to Scotland with a camper van and paint kit.
