As a member of the Moose Jaw Art Guild I would like to extend this invitation to anyone who will be in Moose Jaw Sask. between May 27 and July 4th to stop in and see the wonderful artwork. The exhibition is displayed downtown at the Moose Jaw Cultural Centre. With 21 participants each artist has one piece of work displayed with thier concept of the word “Scapes” which proves to have very interesting interpretations.
If you would like to meet with the artists there will be an opening reception Saturday June 6th 2:00 – 4:00 pm. www.moosejawculture.ca.
These small paintings were done on recycled book covers and the pages of the book were adhered with matte medium as the base for the painting. The premiss for the demo was to be creative when it comes to painting; acrylics can be done on any surface and what better way than to recycle books and honor nature at the same time.
These paintings were done as demos for a class I taught at the Arts Gala at Riverview High School in Moose Jaw for high school kids from the region who were interested in the arts. They had 10 workshops in various genres to choose from that went on for the whole day.
I found some dried up slough weed from last year still left on the side of the water, it had the appearance of being strong and elegant at the same time. I couldn’t resist the strong design elements.
They are on 8″ x 24″ wood cradled panels and is done with inks,conte and graphite.
