CHELSEA ROTARY ART SHOW CANCELLATION - 4TH - 8TH. JUNE 2020

Due to the current COVID-19 Government regulations and the need to keep members and the community safe, the Rotary Club of Chelsea has no option, but to cancel the 2020 Art Show due to be held in June.

We are all facing unprecedented times and we hope you  stay safe and well and support us again next year.

Oils / Acrylics

 This is a marvellous example of the fluid and vigorous use of oil to convey movement and energy.   The beauty of the mediums and three primary colours is its inherent ability to create appropriate textural marks,  almost at its own will.

Watercolours

 This work was chosen for its overall balance and composition.   It has a good sense of light and movement, showing a looseness and freedom with a flowing design held together by related colours and brushstrokes.   Overall a very pleasant wor

105 FENTON Priscilla Peace

Pastels

 The work was chosen for its "grey tone" of colour and overall balance.   The artist has conveyed mood and feeling to this painting.   Structure and skin tone of the figure was very nice and shows a sound knowledge of tonal range in painting, warm and cool colour contrast with soft depict of the background has been used to give a feeling of depth.   Overall a very pleasant work.

Drawing

   This "portrait" drawing is a fine work and shows a good knowledge of the many elements necessary for a sound piece of work.   The overall tonal quality is very pleasant.   Attention to detail is good, without being overdone.

Photography

   The beautiful vibrant colours drew me to this image immediately and upon closer inspection I was compelled by what I saw.   I have seen many images from the American Slot Canyons, however this one is quite unique with the sand falling.
 
All elements work in perfect harmony, exposure, depth of field and sharpness, are spot on.
An exemplary image.

Oils / Acrylics

 At first glance perhaps an unlikely subject, sunlight and shadow across the back of buildings, informal vagaries of backyards, washing lines, etc.  A well ordered composition leads our eye around the picture from the strongly contrasted focal point.  The picture shows an understanding of the principles of aerial perspective.  Strong colours in the foreground trees, cooling and lightening in tone as they recede to the background.  Cool greens balanced by warm orange of the buildings.
#144 Elise Hurst "Afternoon Light Princes Hill"
Commended: #332 Gregory R Smith“A Collection Well Noted”

Watercolours

 This painting has a breadth and simplicity – most economical clear washes with a minimum of marks to convey considerable complexity. Lilac, yellows and greys are the colour ensemble
#321 Julie Simmons "The Bridge Hotel"
Highly Commended #204 Jan Long"Echidna"

Pastels

 Here is a masterly pastel work in the time-honoured classical tradition.  An anatomical study in the tonal tradition – illusionistic rendering of light on objects and space.

"Nude Warm Light"

Drawing

 A bold coloured pencil drawing of an outcrop of weathered granite.  Drawings come in many forms.  This piece shows a miniaturistic attention to fine detail – a modulated blue orange colour scheme pervades and an obvious labour has been revealed as effortless.

2013 Winners

Oils / Acrylics

This lovely oil is traditional painting at it’s best. The diagonal composition draws the eye into this peaceful scene. Great attention has been paid to foreground, middle ground and distance with repeated colours completing a very beautiful piece.

Watercolours

This beautifully executed watercolour shows not only skill but also a quirky sense of mischief. One can feel the atmosphere through the intense blue of the sky but the oversize pegs are the stars of this work. It’s all in the title!

Pastels

I couldn’t fault this excellent pastel. Depicting the figure or portrait (and this is both) is so exacting it has to be right but there is more. Composition and the technique plays a huge part in the end result.

Drawing

The use of the space is what attracted me to this superb drawing. By allowing the bird to be free, not bound by edges but emphasising the strengths in the main parts of the composition. This is a sure winner.
