Default Photo challenge 129 'Art' {May 31, 2011}

Photo challenge 129. 'Art' . This past weekend I attended an art opening at a gallery that is out in the country on a road that I travel frequently. I have never stopped at this gallery, but this month a group of 10 ladies display their paintings, and Sunday was the grand opening. These ladies get together every Monday evening to paint. There was some amazing art work shown! I realize that this is probably not the best time of year to look around in an art gallery, but lets see what you can come up with in the world of paintings, sculpture, and other art on display.

Photo Challenge Rules:
~ Have FUN with this! There are no right or wrong photos.
~ Take as many pics as you want, share the few you like best.
~ Please share only current photos, taken after the challenge was issued.
~ We CANNOT upload our photos to the SCS galleries. You may upload them as an attachment or host them from your blog or any online photo hosting site. Just provide the direct link to the photo in your post and also make sure that it is not from a password protected album.
~ Just a reminder that we are a family-friendly site if you are sending others off this site to view photos in an album hosted elsewhere.
~ You can jump in and start any of the photo challenges at anytime..
~ Again - HAVE FUN
My photos. The first painting is one I just love...the colors really speak to me. I didn't make note of the artist's name. Second and third photo is an oil painting by my friend Judy Walpole. I just wanted to show a bit of detail. She literally finished this one the day before the show and we could still smell the oil paints! The fourth photo is a painting by Wendy Gottmers. It is of a harbour in Grenda and I love the cheerful bright colors!

Interesting challenge - I'll see what I can come up with for this. The colours in your last photo are fabulous; I like the middle one too, by your friend. I only ever once tried working with oils - not for me!

My sister-in-law retired from teaching last year, but prior to that she had already started dabbling with the pottery wheel. She has a very artistic soul and not afraid to experiment. This is one of her unique creations. It's small, so probably suitable as a candy dish. She sells her creations at charity events and pottery guild shows.

hmmmm don't think oldest dd has brought home her art project yet that she is wanting to hang in her room. Will have to ask her later and see if she'll let me take a picture of it.

We went to the Botanic Gardens this morning, and it was one of the occasions that there was an exhibition on.
The ceramics were my favourite - there were two larger pictures, and then the small one was one of a series of 12 called something like Seasons and Tides. I'm not surprised this one was marked sold, it was the nicest of the lot.
The wall hanging was lovely too.

The two paintings are in my aunt's house - her walls are covered with paintings and artwork.
The one with the plums is by my cousin, who has just been appointed an associate of the Royal Hibernian Academy. I'm not over-fond of her portrait style, but she's done paintings of landscapes in Morocco, Spain and Italy which I love.
As far as I remember the other painting was by a family friend for her first or second exhibition; she had several paintings illustrating scenes from Ulysses, and this was one of them. I remember DH having to ask the export manager of a different art supplies company to tell him where in Paris he could get the oil pastels which Mary favoured .

Interesting art, Sabrina. I really like the first three.... an interesting was of splitting up a scene in the first and the beautiful seascape of the second, but the third one really caught my eye! Is it encaustic art? I also am not overly fond of 'still life' paintings, but the one with plums did merit a second look!

It was actually fabric / textiles, quite dimensional.

I guess these also qualify as art - educational displays in the part of the glass house which has all the insect-eating plants - they were lovely!

Sabrina, these are so much fun! Provided me with my first laugh of the day! I especially enjoyed the middle one! They are very artistically done!

Yesterday I was at the Botanical Gardens. This is an excerpt from the Garden's website about the sculpture- "Patricia Sannit's sculpture entitled Citadel was installed along Quail Run Path last week. The sculpture is composed of hundreds of clay bricks dry-stacked together. Sannit was inspired by an Iraqi archaeological site called the Citadel at Erbil."

- I love outdoor sculptures - the Botanic Garden here has an exhibition every year. Pity you're not allowed close enough to feel the bricks - it's such a tactile looking piece.

I was talking to one of the employees about the sculpture and she had said that initially they had considered allowing people to feel it and walk inside. Since there is no kind of adhesive holding the sculpture together they were afraid people would try to pick up the individual pieces. There used to be quite a number of permanent metal sculptures and they all disappeared and, of course, I forgot to ask why.

Sabrina I love the first 3 art pieces. I think the first one is quite cool. I also love the bircks in the gardens how cool is that.

Tonight at work, as I was walking through the dark hallway past the surgical suite at our hospital, I noticed some wonderful art on the walls. These pieces are painted by kids in our community who are homeschooled. Every 3 months the art is changed, and I think each time, there is a special theme that they have, as I often see artwork in similar styles up at one time. I am going to use these pieces as inspiration for my brayered cards! I'm sorrry the photos aren't of the best quality, as the hallway was dark and there was glass on the art so I couldn't use my flash.

I can see how you could translate those into brayered cards. They're lovely - I don't think I could possibly pick a favourite.
