Dear Inside Out Artists

Long time no post! I’m now nine weeks since my hip op and thinking about a get together. Would a Friday in the Willow Gallery suit people? I’m suggesting Friday 29 September usual time 2.0 ish. If this is a really difficult day for some of you, let me know. dianabaur@hotmail.com


Diana is getting ready to take part in this exhibition coming up shortly in Camarthen.

“Diana sketches regularly in her local countryside of North Wales, and so inspiration also comes from the hills and bye ways where she lives. A welcome and surprising developmental fusion of her abstract paintings with the beautiful hilly landscapes around her has driven her to develop the body of work on display.”

 

Recently I have also been creating some very small abstract landscape paintings e.g. below.

Pound Shop Logic
Guy MAYMAN & Paul R JONES
16th January – 31 March 2017
Private View: 16th January 2017 4-6pm
In Pound Shop Logic, Mayman and Jones present a sculptural installation that recalls a stage set or festival site; a world of shifting scale, pulsating colour, hallucinatory landscape, and cult ritual.
The work comprises forms and characters developed by the artists during an activity they describe as live montage; a process where they reanimate their archive of images and sounds in improvised performances. This is an important element in the work they produce collaboratively as Datamosh.
These structures and situations represent a desire to find the potential for transcendence in the everyday. The environment in which Mayman and Jones work is both reflected and distorted through the prism of live montage creating a response to the world which is simultaneously pragmatic and utopian; down to earth yet magical.
Background
This collaboration came about when artists Paul R Jones and Guy Mayman discovered a large archive of 35mm slides, audio cassettes and A4 booklets earmarked for destruction at the Art School where they were working. This material was no longer wanted because of a perception that it had been rendered obsolete by digital and wifi.
Mayman and Jones are fascinated by the hallucinogenic possibilities of everyday experience. Their ongoing project DATAMOSH is a site of excavation and construction, awakening the analogue spectre of the recent past. It re-animates obsolete technology and information, developing a montage of psychedelic improvisation and performance.

All on show at Oswestry Visitor & Exhibition Centre until February 26th. Drop in there for a refreshing cuppa, or a delicious and hearty lunch and pop upstairs to see To Frame or not to Frame – an exhibition by Liz Mellor and Diana Baur.

Preparing for a small exhibition called

Heritage Matters

that will be on display at Oswestry Visitor and Exhibition Centre

from January 4th-February 25th 2017.

A chance to look back over the past year and see photos and some works that were part of Artists Hugging the Hillfort Willow Exhibition and re-visit the HOOOH project supported by   thousands of locals and thousands of not-so-locals who are deeply concerned to protect and celebrate our amazing Heritage for future generations. The 2017 Hug weekend is 11th and 12th February and the emphasis will be on preserving our ecological Heritage. More details to follow, so watch this space. Hope to see you dropping into the Oswestry Heritage Centre for a warm up, some welcome refreshments and a browse. (There will be an exhibition upstairs at the same time called To Frame or not to Frame by Liz Mellor and Diana Baur – so two for the price of one, as they say!

A Happy Christmas and an art-packed New Year

to all our followers, artists, friends & family members, especially those who provide their van to transport artworks across the country for us! You know who you are!!

Filmage is a film company run by Joey Edwards who seems to work 24/7 to produce some amazing films. Follow him on Facebook.

A big thank you to Bridget Drukker for inviting us to join the artists who have enjoyed classes given by Jood Gough at Black Park Chapel for a seasonal treat!

Warmed by under floor heating and a huge wood pellet boiler, the meeting room enfolded us all as if in a blanket. Hot drinks and mince pies accompanied an opportunity to see the portraits and life drawings the group had created under Jood’s supervision. The work room is large and well lit and served by kitchen facilities and has all been renovated to top environmental standards.

After meeting some of the artists, (Josie included!) Bridget took us on a tour of the building. img_0937

The Chapel area is huge and light and again with  underfloor heating and beautiful pews plus a large range of equipment for musical performance makes the venue ideal for many types of celebrations, including all kinds of musical and performance events and ideal too for weddings.
