Details of the Greenock Art Club Awards 2020 are now online. See menu for prizes and info!
Thanks so much to Gavin Weir for his inspiring demonstration. Gavin’s work shows his careful attention to detail and his love of quiet city streets at times when most of us are in our beds. Gavin showed us how much effort goes into producing one of his artworks. We got tips about measuring up, under-painting and softening edges with a fan brush. Looking at Gavin’s drawings and sketchbooks, as well, was a real treat!
HUGH FARREN RETROSPECTIVE Friday 1st – Sunday 3rd / Sat 9th – Sun 10th November
Greenock art Club are proud to be hosting a retrospective of work by Hugh Farren, a former member and teacher, who died earlier this year. Hugh had produced a huge body of terrific work and his family would love to share his legacy with the people of Inverclyde. There will be opportunities to buy pieces of Hugh’s work, see film of Hugh talking and take a meander through Hugh’s life, via photographs and a timeline of his work, showing his artistic development and sources of inspiration.
What a busy few weeks in the club! We have several new members, so welcome to them! The Monday classes are proving popular and the work that has been produced is terrific.
There have been two outings and a film show. Phew! The Life class had a great day out at the Victoria Crowe exhibition in Edinburgh’s City Art Gallery. Gus organised a film showing the work of Hazel Soan which inspired us all and we took the sun with us to Pittenweem for the Arts Festival.
Our Annual Exhibition is imminent. Get your work ready! The show will run from the 31st August until the 15th September. The first two days coincide with Inverclyde Doors Open Day so we may have quite a few visitors. All details are on the noticeboard.
Gavin Weir will be giving us a talk and demonstration on the 2nd of October. Gavin is an accomplished painter specialising in city scenes, figure studies and nature. www.gavinweir.com.
