A Passion for Art, Hundertwasser and a new painting

First blog for a new year!!

Not a good start with Omicron and ‘red traffic light’ settings. BUT by November we will be fine. Take my word for it.

I am part of a team who is organising a project named A PASSION FOR ART. What we envisaged and were working towards was a two day exhibition on April 2 and 3 during the Cambridge Autumn Festival. The Festival was cancelled because of Covid and we cancelled our project because of the concern that people will be fearful of visiting our studios and galleries.

As a result, we have decided to move the Passion for Art to the weekend of November 19 and 20 which fortunately coincides with the Rotary Cambridge Garden Festival on November 20.

We are optimistic of good publicity with assistance from the Cambridge News and the promotion carried out by the Rotary Cambridge Garden Festival.

One of the deviations from the norm in this kind of project is that the Cambridge Museum (who I have a special affection for) will exhibit many of the paintings they have in storage. 

They will do this at Arnold Cottage at Te Awa , we are very fortunate as we have the support of Te Awa’s manager Mandy Hudson.

I am very positive about this project and am looking forward to it.

In the meantime, I have been working out what I will paint next and I have posted one painting here. I have just completed this and it is available just call me or message me if you would like to buy it.

Somehow, I would like to travel up to the Hundertwasser Art Centre in Whangarei. I am a huge fan of this German artist, if you know nothing about him, google him or check out my blog here. He lived in the area for many years besides being a prolific and valued artist in Germany.

Let’s hope that we  progress as far as this Covid19 disaster is concerned and we can return to some sort of normality .
