DRAWING THE LINE A SEALED BID CHARITY EXHIBITION IN AID OF ‘FREEDOM FROM TORTURE’

 

We request the pleasure of your company for the opening of ‘Drawing the Line’

On Saturday 30th November, from 7 – 9pm

Drawing the Line’ has been organised by artist Kate Walters in aid of the charity ‘Freedom from Torture’. It will include works by many artists who have donated, which will be uniquely available through silent sealed bids taken throughout the exhibition.

Supported by The Penwith Supporter’s Group branch of the national charity Freedom From Torture, the exhibition aims to raise funds and awareness for the charity and its work. ‘Freedom From Torture’ started in 1985 as the medical branch of Amnesty International. Since that time it has grown to a large organisation spanning 5 cities, and is almost entirely funded by donations. It offers vital support to survivors of torture from all over the world.

Lovely week teaching in St. Ives, about Dreams and Consciousness

I had a very busy week teaching in St. Ives at the School of Painting, teaching a course on Dreamscapes, Memory, and exploring – expanding- consciousness through the creative process. It was a lovely group of people from all over the country. We worked with drawing in a  number of ways: with the non-dominant hand, with closed eyes, with music, responding to the writings of Aboriginal peoples; to inner impulses, to dreams, and to personal memory. We made a shamanic walk together, focusing on walking, moving quietly along as one animal; some of us worked with the drum to find animal totems, whilst others worked with the monotype process to connect with the animal body.

I will be teaching a very similar course next July from the 8th – 11th at St. Ives School of Painting.

Here are some photos:

New monotypes made at Newlyn Art Gallery

Last week I was in residency, as part of Transitions 10, with Susan Bleakley at Newlyn Art Gallery. Alex Karrasch was also there collaborating with/supporting Sue . We were working with the theme ‘Being in the Desert’, or The Arena, looking at how we can be tested in all sorts of ways.

It was a week of challenges, looking within, but also of gifts; we had several lovely visitors offering great insights, and support, and I was given a box of very interesting books as well as a great picture of the crucified Christ, full of tenderness, acceptance, and love, from Chris through Simon Jacques. I was pleased with the series of monotypes I made.
