Galleries have to be pretty inventive to get the works of their artists out there during the coronavirus pandemic. Byard Art usually has a stream of potential customers passing by as it is situated on one the most famous streets in Cambridge, King's Parade. However with most people now at home they had to find another way.
They have produced an online catalogue with pages that turn at the press of a button. There is a little bit about the artists and a selection of their work. The 20 x 20 exhibition starts today. I love the thoughts behind the title. 20 x 20 refers to the size of all the paintings in inches, 50 x 50cms, reflecting the year. I was delighted to be invited to take part. I have never painted square pictures, I have also never had to paint so quickly as I am a slow kind of painter because the ideas take time to settle. Imagination. Fortunately I am fairly happy with my new Golden Open acrylics although they are a little bit too transparent for my work but a couple of layers usually does it and they dry slower than other makes.
There are 12 artists exhibiting, 3 from Cambridge and all part of their regular team. I am thrilled to be in this company.
Here is a link to the catalogue, artists are in alphabetical order.
As usual Byard Art has an array of 3D work, some really exciting pieces not seen anywhere else. These can be seen on their website or in their gallery window.
