'Advancing the Abstract' debut exhibition by Abstractionistas Collective

'Advancing the Abstract' debut exhibition by Abstractionistas Collective

Friday 9 July - Sunday 25 July
12:00 pm - 5:00 pm

‘Advancing the Abstract’ is the debut exhibition from a new collective of abstract painters based in Scotland. The collective, aptly named, The Abstractionistas, is currently made up of four artists – Esther Donaldson, Megan Chapman, Judith Shaylor and Susan Wilson. These women bring a depth of experience in the arts and a firm dedication to abstract expression, each one striking a different chord with their use of colour, line, space, and drama.

The goal of the collective is to create more opportunities to share the enduring importance, power and pull of abstraction with viewers across Scotland. Please join us for this exciting inaugural exhibition.

The exhibition will be open to the public, subject to current government guidelines. Masks are required except for those who are exempt, social distancing will be in place, and hand sanitiser will be available.

Please book your free tickets on Eventbrite so that we can provide you with a safer and more enjoyable exhibition experience. There are 10 tickets available for each 30-minute time slot to allow for physical distancing.

Not recommended for complete beginners but if you have some experience drawing or painting but not Icon painting please contact me and we can discuss if it will be suitable for you.

You will be guided through all the stages of creating an Icon. You will be supported in conveying your own ideas and a personal style.

Peaceful music played in between feedback will help you come to a quiet and meditative place.
