Posts from the ‘collage’ Category

Books, books everywhere with pages flying through the air, turned upside down and inside out for a series of collages.

I thought I had so very many books for collage that I had been giving them away.  I am now out buying up at op shops.  I get some strange looks from the people serving me as the selected books are so diverse.  My last big buy included: The National Estate, Australia’s Heritage, Album of a Nation, Australian Endangered Species, Florida, The Stockman, Black is Beautiful, One living as one and loving it, Orchids of Africa, Our Royal Family and lots more.  The image is important but almost as much is the quality of the paper that supports it.

From time to time I will post some of my work in progress.  Some of these make the cut and others do not.  These are details only.

I don’t remember all of the books in my collection for collage but last night I remembered a wonderful book about West Australian Wildflowers and of course I couldn’t find it for hours.  Books went flying when I was searching.  You know what it’s like I’m sure.  I remembered the spine, I always remember the spine (not always an accurate memory) was dirty grey and broken still didn’t help me find it any sooner.  Found it.   Next time my studio is covered in paper I will post a pic and you will see what a mess I am working in.

I want you to know that I always look up the books to make sure they are not rare or unique in some way because of course I would not cut them if that was the case.  Often books are kept on a shelf and not appreciated or loved by anyone and then a collage artist (maybe me) will come along and pull it apart to make a unique artwork that can be looked at and appreciated.

Torn paper and found image mixed media collage.

The fish and bird were made quite a long time a using torn paper with gouache and pencil.  The work in progress is the tomb which still has a long way to go but I think has potential.  Hope you think so too.  Am working on quite a few tombs and making them into unique new environments.

Still teaching workshops in collage and still-life painting – message me if you are interested.  I teach from my studio in Alphington, Victoria.

Really really reduced prices Artist Sale at Cambridge Studio Gallery Collingwood.

Workshops:  I am looking for two people that would like to take Wednesday Still-life Workshops in Acrylic with me.  As the classes are so small it would be easy for me to teach Collage/Mixed Media if you prefer.  We meet here in my home studio in Alphington (Victoria, Australia) at 9.30am to 12.30pm.No experience necessary, I will show you my techniques which will make painting fun and easy, you can then adapt to suit your own style.  You only need to love art to do these classes so don’t let your experience or lack of experience stop you from learning something new and sharing this experience with others.  If you are interested or know of anyone else that may be interested pass on my information please.  I would like to start this Wed 14th or the following one on 21st February.  I’ll put it on my Website as well.  www.annewarrenart.com.  

Art, Workshops, Christmas.

I had an enormous year of art and exhibitions this year.

I was invited to exhibit at Holy Trinity in East Melbourne as part of the Eastern Art Festival.

I exhibited with the Out of the Box Group of Artists at Cambridge Studio Gallery.

I had the Alphington Open Studios in November.

I also arranged a fundraiser for several of my art workshop regulars.  It was their first time exhibiting so I let them pick the charity which of course made them work harder.  I then encouraged them all to bring along 5 or 6 friends each to the opening.  We almost had a sell out, plus a couple of commissions for future work.  The charity was for the Tiwi Island Girls Football Team.  They have to travel long distances to play so our efforts helped their travel fees.

I’m hoping for an exhibition with a couple of wonderful artist friends in 2018.  A bit early to tell you much about that.  I am keen for you to see my new website annewarrenart.com as it will have information about workshops and exhibitions which may be of interest.  Please have a look and stay in touch.

Here are a few pics from this year.  By the way I love the snow in December on this site even if it is really really hot here.

See below my Christmas Card for you.  Merry Christmas.  xx

Melbourne East Arts Festival art exhibition August 18-20th.

I was so pleased to be invited to exhibit works at the Melbourne East Arts Festival on Friday 18th August to Sunday 20th August. Inside this beautiful little church, alongside the magnificent stained glass windows I will be exhibiting a solo still-life exhibition of paintings made especially for this occasion. In another room I will be exhibiting a selection of collage work with the highly regarded and beautiful sculpture of Michael Meszaros.
By the way I have heard that the wine and food flows at this event.

Hope you can come along and join us at the Friday evening opening at 8.30pm (note there is a $10 fee as it is a fundraiser for the church) and please also keep in mind the other calendar of events available during this weekend.

Thursday 9.30-12.30 Full
–  Last Summer I had collage/mixed media workshops under the trees but right now I cannot do that to you as it is just too cold.    I have been asked about further classes so I am announcing two dates and times and will keep the classes indoors and limit numbers  to 5 or 6 people only.  This workshop will be suitable for beginners or more experienced.  It will include some new ideas and tips, sharing of ideas and meeting like minded people because everyone that likes collage has a little bit of crazy in them (myself included).

Sun July 30th  11.00am to 2.00pm (3 hours $40)
