FAVOURITE ART GALLERY

On Now

  • spontaneity2

    Spontaneity

     
    featuring Candice Leyland, Sharl G. Smith, and Jean Weller.

    Runs from Tuesday, January 17th to Sunday, March 19th, 2017.

    There will be no opening reception. 

    UpTown Gallery presents Spontaneity.
     
    Like great improvisational jazz musicians, allowing art to be spontaneous requires a careful study, reflection and respect of the medium. Watercolour and wildlife photography as media lend themselves well to the theme of spontaneity. Artists in these media must give up a certain amount of control and let things flow naturally. They must allow for and embrace the unplanned or unprompted. In doing so, spontaneity in artwork creates pieces that are loose, fresh and exciting, inviting viewers to share a moment in time, a flash of an idea or an emotion or experience.
