Wilderness Art Talk with Graham Crowley!
Gosh what a week or two! Got four new paintings finally finished on the day before the opening. The Core Gallery launch had taken up more than a chunk of my life so everything else has been shunted- to be expected. Then just as things looked a bit more normalised and I could start making headway on masses of paperwork the curator we had for the artist talk this saturday had to pull out to deal with family emergencies.
Several frantic phone calls later Graham Crowley managed to save the day, stepping into the helm and he shall be chairing our discussion about Wilderness. I am so very excited to have him chair the talk, it will be fantastic!
Also, we had our first gallery intern Emily Chan joined us who will be taking over some of the Core Gallery work for us. A double blessing week!
Invitation to :
rosalind davis, enver gursev & neil kelly
Saturday 29th May 2010, 2pm onwards
Artists in Dialogue with Graham Crowley
Graham Crowley one of the most distinguished living painters in the UK shall be in conversation with Wilderness Artists: Rosalind Davis, Enver Gürsev and Neil Kelly
Please rsvp firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a space as places are limited
Wilderness is an exhibition by three of London's most promising emerging artists exploring the idea of wilderness through painting, drawing and installation.
Davis, Gursev & Kelly’s works each interpret notions of seemingly abandoned spaces. The results depict urban and dystopian scenes, as if in the wake of apocalypse.
Graham will discuss and explore with the artists the concepts in their works, their notions of Wilderness as well as their own varied and fascinating careers so far in the Wilderness of the Art World!
Wilderness is a show not to be missed, with new works on display from each of the artists.
