EXHIBITION 'The Poetry of Materials'

From 7 October - 28 January, Hangar teacher Marina Kulik exhibits paintings and refliefs in Chateau des Demoiselles, together with the Dutch sculptor Ineke Velsink. 
The name of the expo is 'The Poetry of Materials' 

"The artists create poetry with a chisel and a brush" says Anne-Lyse Guény of the Espace d’art Château des Demoiselles in a press release. The vernissage is on Saturday 7 October, from 6pm - 8pm, with a band, a light buffet and of course the fabulous wines of the Chateau! You are cordially invited...


If you can't make it - just pass by on another date, it is open for 3 more months, and apart from our artwork, you will find that it is a seriously fabulous area to have a good brisk walk (different tracks), rent quads and of course taste the wines!

Here's a small preview of the artwork...
'Bébé Baleine', a watercolour by Marina, from the Amour Maternel series. and the bronze scupture  'Gaia' by Ineke

 More from the 'Koi' Series you may have seen in the EXPO25, watercolours on canvas.
They go so well with Ineke's sculptures!


Marina's Magic Realism in Acrylics together with a marble sculpture by Ineke

 'Recycling: 3D graphics' - very new stuff by Marina
Parts of the 'Ever Evolving work of art, now exhibited separately (and not as a 6 meter long fresco)...

Turtled!

You may have noticed that there are hardly any posts about the 'Aquarellistas' of the Hangar... This is because we have our own blog, www.aquarellista.blogspot.com. It is very popular among other watercolourists and watercolour teachers 😉 But now and then there are paintings that we don't want you to miss...
A fabulous and very characterful sea turtle by Carol Fischer

Last week the subject in the Aquarellista group was 'Sea Turtles'. Just Because. Also, they are very interesting, ancient creatures, around for over 100 million years, from the time of the dinosaurs. I learned from Agnès that they cannot retract their flippers like other turtles. Well, and they are absolutely beautiful, intelligent and full of expression!
All of us worked on doing them justice in watercolours  - and I think that worked out! Here are some results:

This sea turtle was painted by Bev, 'Diving' movement very well achieved!

Celina's turtle - almost finished... I love her clear lines and the contrast between the flowy background, the interesting back and the almost mosaic-like flippers and head

Another gorgeous sea turtle, by Elia. This one high up in the sea. Perfect use of salt and colour.

Sylvie I's turtle in deep Sea, visibly created with pleasure!

Sylvie II created a wet-in-wet protest against turtle slaughter. 
As that happens too, unfortunately. Here's more info


This colourful version was painted by Agnès, I love it! For the story behind it, check out her blog www.hobbysketcher.com
 
Patience painted this amazing fast and energetic turtle... he swims just under the surface, and the sun shines!

And last but not least, Brenda's,  in the watercolour & feltpen technique that she so often uses in her work. Comic book-effect that adds the wink we sometimes need!
 
 Our correspondent in Bretagne, Michele, sends her love to all, and these two watercolours! 
I love the pendant - well done, that silver shine!

A very young sea turtle, also by Michele. Fantastic colours!!
