Art Gallery Dayboro
“The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance.”
“Paradoxically though it may seem, it is none the less true that life imitates art far more than art imitates life.”
“Any form of art is a form of power; it has impact, it can affect change – it can not only move us, it makes us move .”
EACH MONTH THE DAYBORO ART GALLERY SHARES WITH YOU SOME OF THE FINER POINTS OF OUR BRILLIANT ARTIST AND ART ITSELF. LEARN ABOUT THEIR PASSIONS, MOTIVATION AND UNIQUE ASPECTS TO THEIR STYLES AND TECHNIQUS. INDULGE IN OUR ARTS COMMUNITY AND IN DOING SO BECOME PART OF THE FAMILY
Jacqui enjoys the fact that she is now able to express her art through a variety of mediums and subjects, sometimes very realistic but at other times granting herself some "artistic licence". She explores the wonders of graphite, charcoal, watercolour, gauche, coloured pencils, pastels, acrylics and a dabbling of clay work
Joan has lived in Dayboro for over 25 years and has been a significant and tireless member of the Gallery for most of this time. She loves to paint in the impressionistic and abstract styles, mainly using oils. She also produces some very popular clay works of small native animals. Her echidnas have found homes in a lot of gardens and small spaces.
John Good and Myra Good
John and Myra are both also influenced by the impressionistic style, and through their travels around Australia have found subject material in landscape, seascape, bush scenery, flowers. Myra, in particular, enjoys depicting the figures of people in these places. John looks keenly for interesting seascapes to challenge his artfulness and creativity.
DAG Artistic Insights - Art tuition
Throughout April the works of Jacqui Cousins, Joan Gerry, John Good and Myra Good will be featured at Dayboro Art Gallery. Each has many years of experience, and all have undergone journeys of learning and tutorage, experimentation and development of their creative selves.
Why art lessons:
1. For a starting point; new things can be daunting, and it can be hard to know where to start. A lesson will give you that starting point and help stimulate your ideas.
2. Exploration; doesn’t matter your abilities, if you want to experiment lessons can open up your art world and are the best way to try different mediums and style.
3. motivation and a fun environment; motivation to create is often interrupted by life, having a set lesson means that you may always find time to create. Lessons also gather together like-minded people which becomes motivational and fun in its self.
4. Improve skills; If you have already found your passion but would like to delve deeper and perfect your craft, find the artists that offer lessons with the technical development you are looking for.
However, please note that for those striving to be a professional artist, art lessons are only a stepping stone, and that true success in the art world does not always rest on skills alone. You need to be unique in what you do....if an artists work can be recognised befor looking at the signature, then that is something special the a sea af artwork that we experience today.
Some would say the most important lessons to take for an art career is one in business, marketing and promotions….if a great artist is only seen by a few and an average artists is seen and recognised by everyone.... who do you think is more likely to succeed?
Have fun with art, take as many different artform lessons as you can, absorbe all the bits you love, and funnel the ideas into something that is you!
Share the love :)
