Month: July 2013
I have been chosen to exhibit some prints from my ‘London Fashion Doll’ series at the KPMG building (Canary Wharf) the opening will be on Tuesday 6th August from 7-8pm, let me know if you want to come and see all the wonderful art on display created by selected NVAN members: http://www.rosettaarts.org/nvan/ and I’ll pop your name on the guest list
(building normally closed to the public).
KPMG 15 Canada Square
Here are some updates on how the first painting from my ‘Once in a Dream’ series is coming along; this piece is proving extremely time consuming due to the intricate detailing and beading onto such a large piece (60×30 inches) though admittedly I’m really enjoying spending this length of time on a single piece and the therapeutic qualities of intricate beading.
I am going to start working on 1 or 2 more pieces for the series over the coming days so they can feed inspiration into each other. Inspired by dreams my next ideas will include elements of surreal landscapes and bizarre animal sequences.
Here’s the completed wallpaper with the male characters on (I have added some colour/detail for inspiration) but they are free to be adorned however you choose…….
Here is the Press Release with details of the exhibition, I will be adding to it as we go along, hopefully adding the sponsors and exciting information for the big day.
Farrow & Ball are very kindly donating some beautiful coloured paints to be used onto the wallpaper.
Over the next few days I’ll start creating a series of drawings, I will show a new one daily on my Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Veronica-Rowlands-Artist/159670667450279?ref=hl and give one away everyday to people who share their cancer stories, with the aim of providing a support network by people whose lives have been affected by cancer.
Today I had a highly inspirational meeting with charity ‘Breast Cancer Care’ to discuss the interactive Art event, which I can confirm on will be taking place on 14th September 2013 (12-5pm) at Debut Contemporary Gallery (Notting Hill) http://www.debutcontemporary.com/.
Members of the public of all ages and artistic abilities are invited into the gallery to adorn a character on a piece of wallpaper however they wish (there will be 2 strips, one male and one female), the final art pieces will then be exhibited and auctioned off, with 100% of profits being split between
Beating Bowel Cancer: http://www.beatingbowelcancer.org/
Breast Cancer Care:http://www.breastcancercare.org.uk/
Both of these charities are very close to my heart as I lost my beloved Stepfather to Bowel Cancer in 2009; my aim is to create a legacy, in which art brings people together by creating awareness for Cancer research, whereby each individual participant inputs an element of their personality into the project.
If you require further information on the event including interviews, or wish work with us as a sponsor please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
The next buzzing V.I.P night at Debut Contemporary is on August 7th (7-9pm), it’s always a wonderful event, buzzing with creativity, cocktails and DJ, you’ll also be able to view my most recent body of work along with the other talented Debut Artists working in a diverse range of mediums; remember to RSVP:
I was delighted to sell 2 of my original ‘Surreal Fashion Doll’ paintings at the end of last week.
Both were on display at Debut Contemporary (Notting Hill Gate) and went to different buyers; these first 2 originals to sell were also my very first and last from my ‘Surreal Fashion Doll’ series. I met with the buyer last Tuesday to present her with the Certificate of Authenticity; it was lovely to meet her and know where my lady has gone.
