Hi all. There is one full day left of the collection exhibition at Stew gallery. All work will be coming down after 5:30pm on Wednesday 14th August. We were lucky enough to have been able to extend the exhibition a few more days so get down tomorrow for the final day if you haven’t already been to see it (or even if you want to see it again!).
Here are a few pics of the exhibition to whet your appetites.

Andrew Elvin has sent us some wonderful examples of his new Pointillism work. These will be up in our regular exhibition space at Rude Boys Studios very soon.
‘I greatly admire the Pointillism artist Maximilien Luce and always wanted to create a painting of my own in this style. I have tried a few Pointillism paintings now but I had never been happy with them so ‘going back to the drawing board’, I decided to try out just black ink to hone this skill. I was pleasantly proud of what came about on the page with the Jimi Hendrix. Friends started to suggest who they would like to see and along came Dimebag Darrell and Johnny Cash. Also with having AS, painting on large canvas is not always comfortable for me but I found these pictures gave my body a break as I could do them in relatively more comfort. It was always a good excuse to blast out their music while I dotted away too. There will be more on their way soon when my ear drums have recovered.’

Take a look at Alexis C Evans’ work and check out more at Alexis’ website.
“After leaving Norwich art school and completing a MA in fine art I went into full time employment with what can only be described as creative burn out. After a long period of not making any art, I took up the pencil again and haven’t stopped drawing or printing since.
The themes surrounding my work explores animals interaction in our anthropromic victorian, sentimental, culture, how that perpetually influence my drawing, attempting to capture a sense of a sentient being. Exploring how are culture objectifies animals, representation and meaning, through characterisation , classification, mythology folklore and religion symbology.
I am currently building a new portfolio of drawings ’works’ for a website. During May last year I started a blog, which I have continued to update, with new works including hoarded drawing and prints.”

Naomi Zachary-Levey has sent us some examples of her work to share with you. Read Naomi’s statement below and check out her website www.naomilevey.com for further reading.
“From creating imaginary worlds and being fascinated with animation and cinema, it was clear from an young age that the real world was never going to be enough for Naomi Levey. Armed with her first set of crayons and a pad of paper as a toddler, she began to scribble her imaginary characters and worlds into life… And she just didn’t stop.
A child-like sense of wonder, a vast imagination and a quirky sense of humour are at the core of Naomi’s artwork. Drawing inspiration from cartoons, nature, cinema, music and literature, Naomi creates an ever-changing fantasy world where nothing is what it seems, a world whose endearingly strange characters can swing from whimsical to creepy in a heartbeat.
Naomi’s work can be found across the United Kingdom in tattoo shops, art galleries and private art collections. Her eclectic style has evolved from painting and sketching to mixed media pieces involving paper, fabric and sculptured elements. All the elements of her artwork are hand-made allowing Naomi to invest herself fully in her work, making each piece both personal and unique.
Her current body of work is a series of 30 mixed media pieces entitled “The Forests of Ereshades”. She currently resides in Norwich in a toadstool cottage.”
Brian Korteling has announced another life drawing class on Sunday 16th December. See below for details.
“ The opportunity has arisen for another life painting day on Sunday 16th December. It will be held in The Old House in Coltishall and the session will run from 10am until 4pm with a 30 min lunch break and a couple of coffee/tea breaks also. At present I have 4 spaces left. The cost will be £25 per artist, tea and coffee etc will be included and I shall supply some basic drawing material and paper should people wish to do any warm up sketches at the beginning of the day. You will need to bring your own lunch however.”
Brian has also sent us a poster for the life drawing classes he runs on Tuesdays.
