Drawing as Language

August 18-29th

Through the artist's hands come the marks that describe her world. Through portraiture and psychological landscape this show explores the theme of Drawing as Language.

Each artist's marks become an idiolect, which tell us as much about her world as about the thing she observes.

Dirty Plates

3rd Year Printmaking in the LSG
4th-14th August

While it is easy for many printmakers to fall into a solitary practice after leaving NAS, our class was lucky enough to have developed into a kind of family group. This support base has been inspirational. It is important to share the fruits of our labour and express the importance of maintaining active contact with other artists - especially in a school that takes such pride in its sense of artistic community.
We have carried this value into our practice by creating editions for exchange portfolios within our class, and also tried to reach out to you through our opening night with a presentation of home baked goods. For us, food and printmaking have equal nutritional value. We are always hungry for more...whether for artistic fulfilment, or just another big piece of cake. So, this exhibition is a celebration - a feast for all starving (and not so starving) artists, and anyone else with a stomach and aspirations.

Playing with Water
10-22 May 2008

The works in this exhibition reflect a year long visual exploration of water.

Water: it is colorless and both transparent and opaque; it reflects the colors of the things around it. When it is opaque, it is at its most reflective. It is also shapeless, molding itself to the shape of the things it comes into contact with.

Water: it is almost endlessly in motion, changing color and shape almost continuously. Looking at a large body of water, like the sea, is like looking at a solid, mobile, color changing mass. Being in water, in the sea, is to feel the motion, the energy, of the sea. It is an immersion into that energy.

Some of the works in this exhibition were made using ink wash on paper, some were made using oil on paper, and some were made using oil mixed with pigment and acrylic binder on canvas.

There is a way in which the action of applying a wash or paint to a support is like the experience of swimming in water. There is a physical effort required like the effort needed to stay afloat in water. The greater the movement in the water, the greater the effort required to stay afloat. Applying a wash to paper is like the fluid, rhythmic movement of swimming in a lap pool; applying oil paint to canvas, especially a large one, is like being in strong surf.

Summer Days, Summer Nights

Summer Days Summer Nights displays the diverse range of directions feasible in third year sculpture and showcases our early self directed works. This exhibition marks the transition of our sculpture class from a brief driven second year into a wholly self directed third year and our efforts to come to term with this move. For us this exhibition was a motivation for us to create art at a time when its easy to feel lost and overwhelmed with the myriad of artistic possibilities facing us.

Giovanna Marelli and Hildreth Potts

15 March – 3 April 2008

Giovanna Marelli and Hildreth Potts have created works which explore the idea of hybrids: formal, linguistic and cultural.
The works straddle or link two or more worlds combining plants or animals with people, words with forms, cinematic narrative with renaissance perspective.
