Art Tuesday

Inspired by Fayah and Audrey who have a paint together day, Judy and Jola have put away part of their Tuesdy to explore art together.
As Judy has a small printing press the first explore was lino blocks and her printing press.
It's been a while since either one has cut a lino block but cut they did and had so much fun totally forgot to document in the fun of ink, paper, brayers, felt and the right pressure and wonderful results! Yay!
We used printing ink but Judy also suggested embossing and WOW am I blown away and excited, sooooo beautiful!

Next week it's monoprints and gelli plate fun :)

The days have been busy at the Barracks as many of the region's artists filed in with their new works for the next big show for Orange Wine Festival! So here's just a taster to tempt you to come and join us, peep into the studios and be amazed at just what talent regional Australia has! You might even find that piece to brighten up your abode and bring some "Colour in your Life!"

Don't fear rejection, people's decisions are not always right

Letters of Note: It's with regret, Mr. Warhol...

Don't fear rejection, The Museum of Modern Art sent this letter to Andy Warhol in 1956 when he offered them one of his drawings.
