I am sure that I have mentioned before that my wife is a very talented painter. Some time ago she was offered the opportunity to exhibit at the Odlin Gallery in Lower Hutt. This would be her second solo exhibition.
While she was chuffed with the offer, she was really concerned that she did not have enough pieces to display, and so we agreed that I would supplement her paintings with a series of my photos. In the end 12 images were chosen, all that fitted the overall theme of the exhibition “Life’s Little Moments”.
Now I mainly present digital images but there is something really nice to see your work on the walls.
The opening night was held on Tuesday and around 60 people came to look at the works. It was really nice to hear all the positive comments made. Five of the images were processed into Black & White using Nik software, and I would have to say that I was really pleased with how they came out.
The exhibition runs until May 29.
Every two years the life drawing group of the Hutt Art Society holds an exhibition of their nudes. Two years ago it was expanded to include photos, and the current exhibition opened last Tuesday.
I had been preparing for this exhibition for a while and my image “Naked Art Class” was specifically shot for it. You can read all about that image on this blog post. In addition to that image I have three other images entered, with each demonstrating different styles and techniques.
It has been really good observing the reactions of people as they see “Naked Art Class”. Quite a few have big smiles on their faces which is exactly what I was trying to achieve.
The exhibition is open until Sunday 2 August at the Odlin Gallery, which is found at the corner of Huia Street and Mrytle Street in Lower Hutt.
