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. Show & Tell will be on in our Studio at Hawthorn.
Our presenters for July
Meg Williams was teaching design at Monash University, she was impressed with the powerful images being made by the students of Geoff Dupree in the Drawing Department. Meg applied to do the course, eventually becoming a lecturer there. At the same time she began to tinker with oil painting, gathering up objects that appealed to her and staging them in brightly illuminated groups. “They acted out some sort of drama,” says Meg. “What they were up to was a mystery to me until some time after the painting was finished when I realised that a message from an unopened underground niche of my brain was in plain view. There was a meaning.”
Terry Griffin sees his art as a passion that ebbs and flows; something challenging and sustaining. Over a long period he has continued to develop an abstract style of watercolour painting, layering, mark-making and composition. This is often related to Australian landscapes and it’s habitation; informed by trips into the outback. Terry will build a matrix of colour layers and marks of different kinds. His artwork is a journey of development in style, technique and subjects. His abstract pursuits are supported and opened up by regular life drawing practice.
“For exhibitions, I have turned over my home several times to become a gallery,’ says Terry. “It is a lot of work, but satisfying. I have curated solo exhibitions of my work and group exhibitions of friends, in this intimate setting. The gathering of people to share this experience is quite special. There have been encouraging attendances, comments and of course sales.”
