Monday Abstract Art with Pim

After some extremely busy months, first with the exhibition in Grasse - then the exhibition in Theoule and now the exhibition in Chateauneuf, painting classes are getting back to normal. Monday evening was a very energic session. There were not too many (if any) finished pieces - but a lot of experimentation and work in progress.

Marie in action - and Patrick contemplating from a distance.

Who's copy who -  Imme or Michele ?
If you would like to join the class - please contact Pim. There's also room for you - even if you have never painted abstracts before !

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!
