Following on from our previous exhibitions at Fat Tuesday, we're scheduled to exhibit there again in June, 2013. This time we're fortunate to have Ana de Vlieg join us.
We meet regularly to discuss our work.
As four strong personalities, we have a lot of fun. We discuss - debate - deliberate - decide - deduce and well ... we drink. We drink copious cups of coffee, and when it's fitting we'll have a glass to celebrate the occasion.
We're using an interesting process for this exhibition ... but more of that later ... can't let the cat out the bag just yet ;-)
One not only needs 'balance' in composition!! Ana will go to any lengths it seems to get great pics ... and manages to do this with style all the same (how beautiful is her crochetedjacket).
Maggie needed a quiet place to read over the first draft of our exhibition statement. She found this great spot in Joan's office, in and alongside her fabulous classroom where we get to meet each month. The view of Durban's Berea stretching towards the sea is spectacular.
Ana's always hard at work taking notes ... by hand or by apple :-)
So there you have it ... when we're not painting away in our studios, we're getting together where the cameras snap, the cuppa's are a-plentiful, the computers tick tick away and the whole thing of collaborating is fabulously filled with friendship and the stuff that keeps us going. Joy, joy, joy !!!
Each year, the Tathum Gallery hosts an event in November of
works donated by artists, which are auctioned to raise funds for the galleries purchase of new works. This is the fourth year that I've enjoyed participating and in contributing in a small way along with other artists supporting art.. !
You can see the works that I donated here.
The works will be available for viewing from the 25th to the 30th November, when also the final auction will take place.
ToOn delivering my works to Maggie to get bundled off and sent to Pietermaritzburg, I was delighted to see that for a change WE MATCHED ... so we took a photo for fun.
Maggie has so many intersting nooks and crannies and interesting finds in her garden ... I regularly want to snap away and capture these images ....
My friends Maggie and Joan visited me for my birthday with prezzies that only artists would know to give to artists ) ... and as in the last two or so visits ... they're MATCHING AGAIN :-)
So, we had to take photos ... don't they look beautiful !!
