Avital Scheffer – Wanderlust @ Beaver Galleries

10 – 27 August 2017

I demonstrate remarkable self control in the presence of artworks by Avital Scheffer. Every fibre of my body cries out to touch, caress and pick up these attractive ceramic artifacts. The objects ooze Middle Eastern culture from the faded sun drenched colours to the faded painted Hebrew inscriptions on parts of the works.

Scheffer creates objects that evoke Arabian nights with their wonderful curves and decorative shapes. From the narrow necks and pointed stoppers ro the curvey bodies of these vessels there is a historical reference to all of her work.

I love her work and have the gallery sheet and some pics below

 

Emerging Contemporaries @ CraftACT

A recent exhibition at Craft ACT was an explosion of gorgeous creativity and craft skill. All participants are classed as emerging but none of them are inexperienced in bringing to exhibition remarkable works of art. The range of materials used was wonderful and the integration of different materials into the same work was impressive. Sample pictures and gallery materials are included below.

I have included many examples of those on display below.

2017 Student / Teacher Exhibition @ Watson Arts Centre

22 June – 9 July 2017

Often art exhibitions are a display of highly developed creative skill and innovation. Some are retrospectives and others are displays of beginners’ work. The magic of the current exhibition in the Watson Arts Centre is the fact that they have integrated the work of experts with that of beginners. In the one exhibition there are items made by children and beginner adults side by side with highly refined work by creatives with decades of expertise.

The other side of this exhibition is that some potters believe in smooth highly refined product and other mature producers believe in lightly worked and rough works. The result is a hundred works that range from thimble sized to large pot sized creations.
