VIVID exhibition

Opening THIS Saturday 2-4pm at Chapman and Bailey, VIVID!
 
An exhibition by Sue Beyer, Louise Blyton, Filomena Coppola, Rox De Luca and Ilona Nelson.
 
Colour is often dismissed as having a purely decorative function. In this exhibition colour is used to describe cultural oppositions, emotional states, transformation, self censoring and the experience of place. The work presents a socially acceptable surface of creative expression, a thin veil which if penetrated reveal five individual her-stories. Stories, which are unique to the individual but shared in experience by many. In this exhibition, colour is a reflector which projects the experience and creates a space for immersion, conversation and reciprocity.

EOFY tax deductible donations

There’s only 2 days left before the end of the financial year!  Ilona is currently raising funds to help her host her biggest exhibition yet and it’s going to be such a special show.

It features her portraits of 26 artists accompanied by work by each of the sitters.  There’s also a fantastic program of events including a live drawing installation and performance by Gosia Wlodarczak, a panel hosted by the Women’s Art Register and Maria from the Talking With Painters podcast will be recording live in the exhibition with artist Jacqui Stockdale!

Thank you so much to everyone that has contributed so far.  All funds raised go towards covering the costs of the exhibition at Town Hall Gallery 1st September – 21st October.  Along with sponsorship and support from the gallery, all exhibiting artists will get paid an artwork loan fee.  Not only does Ilona want gender equality but for artists to get paid for their time and work.

So please, if you can, make a tax deductible donation and share the link with your friends to help Ilona smash her target!  You’re not only supporting the artists in this exhibition, but all of the 100+ This Wild Song artists and helping us create change.  Thank you!!
