The Owl and the Pussycat Exhibition
UPDATE – The exhibition has been extended and will now run until the end of July, 2018.
I’m incredibly excited to announce that The Owl and the Pussycat Exhibition at the Inverarity Gallery will run from May 4th until June 23rd! I can’t believe how quickly time has passed. It feels like only yesterday I was contemplating whether to paint on cradled wood or my usual paper.
As I explained in an earlier post, I decided to paint on cradled wood. I chose to illustrate different parts of the Edward Lear poem across the 5 wood panels. I’ve really enjoyed the process of producing these paintings and it’s been tough only being able to show you a few work in progress pics over the past few months.
With the exhibition now officially open I can now finally share the finished paintings with you all. I’ve absolutely loved painting on the cradled wood. I actually ordered 2 extra tiny 4 x 6 cm ones when I bought the other ones so I could get free shipping. Look out for those in the future!
The exhibition is showcasing the work of several international artists and their personal interpretations of the poem, or just something owl or cat related. Some of my personal favourite artists are exhibiting along side my own offerings and, I must admit, I’m feeling just a little awestruck!
