Natural Abstractions: Installation Photos

Yesterday I returned to Gosford Regional Gallery to deliver more catalogues and to take in the exhibition at a leisurely pace. Here are some more installation photos. The exhibition is in the foyer gallery which has recently been modified to cover over windows and provide more exhibition space. My exhibition is comprised of 52 framed textile sketches and 19 larger textile paintings:

And here are a few shots showing people.  I love watching what catches people’s eyes and hearing their comments. It was actually quite busy and I talked with many of the viewers. I especially enjoyed chatting with some young children who stopped by after attending an art class.

  1. Your show looks fantastic Brenda. And congrats on the sales.

    Well done. You are such a great example of what happens if you just do the work.

    • Thanks for stopping by Lisa. It’s a thrill to have the artwork on display and to see and hear viewers engaging with it so enthusiastically. I had a hectic schedule in 2017 but the deadlines of the weekly art project really helped to keep me on track. Thank YOU for your fine example with the 100 days project and your art practice generally.
