(This meeting is our Christmas celebration; the next meeting is 25 February 2014.)
Daphne’s talk may inspire and change the way we approach our art practice. Daphne has been Head of Visual Arts at Masada College in St Ives since 1987 and holds a Masters in Art Education from Boston University, USA. She intends to talk about “generative thinking in contemporary art making as well as the interconnection between art studying and art making practices. My talk will expand upon the process of ideas unfolding and the connections made throughout the process of developing and bringing a body of work to resolution. I will demonstrate this through a range of forms including sculpture, printmaking, film and painting.”

Julie began her career at 16 as a commercial artist where drawing was an intrinsic part of her work. She paints in many mediums but solid drawing is integral to all her work. Julie has won numerous awards and been a finalist in some major shows including The Mortimer Prize, The Northbridge Prize and The Norvill Art Prize. Her demonstration will encompass tone, composition and perspective and is sure to enthrall all.

After the AGM, we will have the pleasure of watching John Perkins demonstrate his skill with oils. John is a widely recognised traditional oil artist who has pursued various subjects, yet is most renowned for his marine, streetscapes & still life paintings. He has been awarded over 70 first prizes and many highly commended awards throughout his career, and continues to gain accolades such as the Lloyd Rees, Waterbrook and Joshua Smith Awards. Watching John work up a canvas is a delight; he is quick, chats happily throughout and enjoys answering questions.
