CHELSEA ROTARY ART SHOW RE-OPENING 2021

2020 has been a difficult year for all of us, with COVID-19 forcing the closure of our show. At this stage, we are on track to re-open and we look forward to reuniting with all our wonderful artists in 2021.

The 2021 Queen's Birthday is 14th. June, so our Show will be from Thursday 10th. June - Monday 14th. June 2021.

 

 

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.

#240 WALTER MAGILTON “Waiting for Tide-Rise”
Highly Commended:
#215 Ian Laurens

# 142 Jeff Hastings
“Hide & Seek”

#152 Glen Hoyle

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!

# 113 Grant Gittus “Not Like Us”
Highly Commended:
# 366 Doreen Shaw
“Farm House Breeze”

Highly Commended:
# 442 Malcolm Webster
“Fast Terowie”

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.

# 406 Rosemary Todman-Parrant “Romantic”
Highly Commended:
# 8 Lynne Bechervaise
“Edible Landscape 1”

Highly Commended:
# 275 Lyn Mellady
“Bayside Afternoon”

Highly Commended:
#308 Lynette Palmer
Blossom Visitor”

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.

#221 Cherie Leeden “Survival”
Highly Commended:
295 Adrian Neill
