Friday³Live

Start the weekend early by attending Friday³Live @ the Gallery. This is a fun up-late program held at the gallery on the third Friday of every month. Includes music, creativity, food, bar, talks and performances.

 

Life drawing: How to 'see' with all your senses - refine your life-drawing skills

Guided by exhibiting artist Robyn Shaw, explore how to use memory constructively to enhance drawing: in particular, life-drawing. Gesture is not tangible – it must be felt. Feeling the action or attitude of a pose with your own muscles is the basis for remembering and observing the action and attitude of the model. Hands-on exercises aimed at training the memory will be incorporated into drawing as a way to capture the gesture of the model

Robyn Shaw: I grew up in Caloundra and it has left its mark on me. My father was a photographer and instilled in me a love of the aesthetic. I pursued this love throughout my life – studying drawing and painting and participating in group exhibitions in Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast. I attained my BA in Fine Arts and Visual Culture in 2014 and completed BA Honours (Humanities) in 2018.  Movement and gesture in artwork are of the utmost importance, whether drawing/ painting the figure or the isolation of a coastal landscape.
