There is no shortage of great scenery to paint in White City. I’ve painted here a number of times – and have discovered another fan – Julian Bell. He creates drawings onsite and paints in his studio. We’ve gone out together a few times – here is the fruit of my labor:
And here is one of the Julian’s White City Pieces:
He doesn’t have a web site, but look out for his work, it’s cool and graphic, he also shows at the Ashland Painters Union.
Here is the work of Q Quast – “I am this Space. I am this Place.” It’s sitting on the floor, waiting to be taken home. Originally it was hung on the wall – of course. Q is doesn’t believe in websites so she doesn’t have a link for me to share…
I’ve been exceptionally busy this year, working on the Smithfields paintings, working my day job and then I added a pet project with a group of painters – Ashland Painters Union – we found a great space and simply wanted to put on shows that were curated by the artists. Clean, gift free space to show art.
We had a lot to do, had a lot of fun at the opening, and everything was going well… until Monday March 19
In the cold light of day, we discover that our gallery has extensive smoke damage (although all the art work is okay – smells smokey, but not ruined) and worse, the support beams have been damaged, leaving us unable to safely occupy the space until repairs are done, which may take two months.
