Smoke Talk and Demo

Smoke Exhibtion 2022 – Artist Talk and Demo by Giovanna Scott

As a way to bring the inside (of my head) out into the world, I always look forward to planning and presenting an Artist Talk.

How do you make GREEN? Just one topic in my Artist Talk.

For those of you not familiar with what that is, it is how an art lover connects more fully with the exhibiting Artist. This could be through a walk-through of the exhibition, or a sit down seminar style presentation, there can be a demonstration, a lucky door prize or a simple thank you gift. It is an opportunity for both Artist and the public to gain insights into each other’s preferences too.

Tools! Where would we be without them?

How I like to approach these is to begin with how the concept of SMOKE informed every piece of work. How I brainstormed the word, collated poems, found reference photos, produced thumbnail sketches, the alchemy of colour mixing recipes to create cohesion, selecting paper types and qualities for the artwork, painting the collage papers, composition, sizes, treatment, and naming each piece.

Inspiration found in the neighbourhood.

For this event, I’ll open up my Visual Diary, continue on a work in progress, and provide materials for you to create your own unique piece of painted paper with my monoprinting kit.

RSVP is not necessary, but those who do will receive a special gift.

If you’d like more information about Artist Talks, demonstrations, or how to approach galleries for exhibitions, use the Contact page or start a conversation by commenting on this post.
