I am proud to be exhibiting metalpoint drawings about the wonderful Burgundian terroir in the exhibition, Terratorium at the Musée-Galerie Carnot in Villeneuve-sur-Yonne, Burgundy from May 4th until October 19th, with the opening reception on May 4th, at 18.00 hours.
A torrential rain storm and hail were the prelude to the opening of my exhibition, Terratorium, at the Musée-Galérie Carnot in Villeneuve-sur-Yonne, Burgundy! Nonetheless, lots of people came, were passionate art lovers and fascinated by metalpoint. What more could one ask of a vernissage?
Learn the medieval art of metalpoint drawing from Jeannine Cook, one of the world’s few modern masters of this ancient pre-graphite drawing technique. Working on prepared paper with silver, gold, or copper, the subtle shimmering slow-art method is deeply meditative and yields stunning tonal results.
The opening of my exhibition about the terroir - the soil, climate, vines, etc. - of Chablis wines was a lovely event. Now the metalpoint exhibition is open every Saturday and Sunday, when L & C Poitout winery is open for wine-tasting and viewing the art.
The opening of my reception, "Intimidades: Dibujos en Oro y Plata", was a very well-attended event, with the Fundación Barceló reporting very favourable comments about the art.
My large silverpoint exhibition, “Intimidades: Dibujos en Oro y Plata” at the Fundación Barceló, Palma de Mallorca, has taken a long time to prepare, mainly during the different artist residencies I have had in France and Portugal in past months. The opening reception will be on 14th September; the gallery will also be open during the big art festival in Palma, the Nit de l’Art, in mid-September.
My metalpoint, "The Lace of Fragility: Lemon Leaves", will be on display at the Pro Arte y Cultura Group Exhibition, at the Castillo de Son Mas, Andraitx, Mallorca, from Friday, May 19th until the exhibiiton closes on 26th May, 2017.
Jeannine Cook and Jeffrey Lewis, two long-term artist colleagues and friends, exhibit their silverpoint drawings, quiet lustrous voices that counter-act today's shrill discourse in the public arena.
