Sheila’s weekly update 45: Endings and beginnings

No Comments

This week I reflect on some endings and beginnings. Like so many others I was saddened to hear about the passing of Dame Elizabeth Blackadder, and so I couldn’t not mention that sad news. Her legacy will last for many, many years to come. On the beginnings side, my life drawing classes started again this week and I share how they have inspired some landscape work. So in the video I share how a couple of pieces are beginning.

No Comments

This week I share a more about a couple of exhibitions I have been able to go to IRL (in real life). Firstly the Karla Black, sculptures (2002- 2021) details for a retrospective, currently on at the Fruitmarket Gallery in Edinburgh, and the RGI Summer Reflections at the Kelly Gallery in Glasgow. Seeing other artists work is always a thrill and and does help to broaden my own perspective and practice.

This week I share news about my trip earlier this week to The Stable gallery in Inveraray to drop off some pieces with them, and also about the Art on in Exchange event this week in Royal Exchange Square in Glasgow. On Sunday I’ll have some work on the Saltspace stand and will be there in person in the afternoon helping out on the stand. Why not swing by if you are nearby.

After a couple of weeks “off camera” I’m back with my weekly updates. This week I share some of what I’ve been up to over the past couple of weeks, including the thinking and planning side of being an artist. Would love to hear your thoughts on what I’ve been sharing too, so we can extend the conversation.
