Well done to all the young people who entered the competition and exhibition. The work is spectacular! It was encouraging to see so many different approaches: drawing, painting, embroidery/sewing, screen printing, mono-printing and photography. Themes ranged from still life, portraiture, landscape, the built environment, the natural environment and fantasy. So much young talent in our community! Thank you to Inverclyde council for their support. Special thanks also to Gourock Rotary Club, who we are joining forces with, to give our young people even more opportunities in the future. Please have a look at our Greenock Art Club Award 2020 gallery using the drop-down menu.
We had a terrific demonstration by Nichol Wheatley in December. Nichol gave us some great tips about priming canvases and using the ‘Golden Section’ to produce balanced compositions in our paintings. It was a joy to watch him apply paint with a bold and confident approach. Many thanks to Nichol for the masterclass. We hope to see him again, soon.
Our next event will be the Greenock Art Club Award exhibition and competition for young artists in Inverclyde which takes place in the Stables Studio on the 24th of January. We are looking forward to seeing some exceptional work from our local youth. Still a few weeks to create a masterpiece!
Nichol will visit the club once again on Wednesday 11 December 2019 where he will be demonstrating a landscape in oils. Starts at 7.30pm and finishes at 9.30pm. Come early for a seat with a view!
Thanks to everybody who helped or visited the Hugh Farren exhibition. it was a terrific event and proved very popular. A lot of work was sold and the family have passed on their gratitude for our support. As well as inviting members to the launch party, the family kindly donated biscuits, tea and coffee to the cupboard.
Members are reminded that proposals for personal exhibitions can be discussed with the committee.
