This Friday's opening: "Glass Me Not - Paintings and the Looking Glass"

The world of blogging is new to me so please bear with me in my quest to share more images of new shows, new works and interesting news.

Getting the pictures up here seems to be the current challenge, we will see if you can see Marylee Laing's wonderful paintings.

So the lay out is pretty strange, I will have to work on that.
Come and see for them real, this Friday
6.00 to 9.00 pm.
Marylee Laing will be
giving a talk at 7.00 pm
with questions to follow.

See you there, Upstairs Gallery
at Snapdragon.

First the image for the Marylee Laing Show

Title is Zig Zag.

"Glass Me Not- Paintings and the Looking Glass"

New work by Marylee Laing in the Upstairs Gallery at Snapdragon. Opening and reception: 6.00pm to 9.00pm, Friday 14th August.

Shine, colour, reflection and transparency; all the qualities of glass - painted on canvas.

The work is abstract, yet strikingly familiar; suggestions of landscapes, running water, falling leaves, billowing clouds and flowers in bloom.

All shimmering as though under glass. Come and see what you see.

Meet the artist this Friday, enjoy a glass of something cold and view these mixed media paintings "Through the Looking Glass".
