Artbound Opening Night

August 13, 2011

Last night saw the preview of the Artbound show at Resonate.  A huge thanks to everyone who came along to make the night a great success.  I tried to get a few pictures of the exhibition but had to give up pretty quickly as it was rather busy.  Here’s what I managed to capture at the beginning of the night.

A private viewing will take place on Friday 12th August at 7.00pm.  International poet Billy Letford will be opening the evening and performing a selection of his own work.  I’ve attended a performance by Billy before and can wholeheartedly say it’s not to be missed!

If you would like to come along to the viewing on Friday drop me an email at juliebroom@btinternet.com or leave a comment here and I will get right back to you.  Hope you join us on Friday.

Monoprinting Demonstration

July 11, 2011

Just thought I’d share a few pictures taken by one of the members at the July meeting of Alloa Art Club.  I did a short demonstration for the members on basic monoprinting techniques.  This was before I ended up with ink plastered up my arms …


Yotsume Toji

July 3, 2011

Last Thursday, I tried my hand at Yotsume Toji (four hole japanese stab binding) at a workshop held at Resonate Arts house.

The course was run by talented artist Jana Emburey.  I highly recommend having a look at Jana’s website www.jeart.eu to view her fantastic paintings and I just love those monoprints too.

Jana will be running an intensive weekend monoprinting course on the 9th and 10th of July at Resonate.  More information about the course can be found here.
