Over half way through the year already. For my art journey my year has two halves as well. The first half of the year is when I find I do most of my classes and paint, paint, paint. The second half of the year seems to be the season for exhibitions.
This year the season will start in August when our little group Unlimited Palette will be exhibiting at Maddox Jewellers in the Main Street Katikati. Our exhibition is Haiku in Art, where our art works will relate to a haiku from the haiku pathway in Katikati or from another source of haiku poems and the artist’s themselves.
All of the art work will measure 300 x 300mm and all priced at $120.
September will be a preparation and framing month. Submissions for Franklin Arts in Pukekohe with the exhibition from the 2nd October until the 10th October at the Pukekohe Town Hall. A superb event with some amazing art work. Looking forward to seeing that exhibition.
October is the highlight of my year with the Watercolour NZ exhibition SPLASH. Held annually at the Academy of Fine Art Wellington. This year from the 16th October through to the 31st October.
November will include the inaugural exhibition of Bay of Plenty Artists in Rotorua. From the 8th November through to the 12th December.
My big news is my solo exhibition in Hawera in November. I have been accepted to exhibit at the beautiful Lysaght Watt Gallery from the 9th November until the 4th December. Pamela Lines: Watercolour past and present will be a journey through the last decade of my watercolour art. Hawera is the small town where I grew up and still have family there, so it will be like a homecoming for myself and my art.
Please get in touch with me if you would like to be part of opening night on Monday 8th November.
My last class for the year will start tomorrow and go for 5 weeks. I do learn heaps from them but I’m ready to start preparations for Hawera and the coming exhibitions.
Thank you all for taking the time to read my blog. As always would love to hear back from you.
Take care. Ka kite ano.
