CANCELLATION OF THE 45TH. CHELSEA ART SHOW FOR 2021

It is with regret we advise the cancellation of the 45th. Chelsea Art Show.

After careful consideration of the current issues – the Level Crossing Removal Project which is affecting the Chelsea and Edithvale crossings between July and October and the ever changing Covid-19 restrictions, the Art Show Committee have decided to cancel this year’s Show.

We apologise for the delay, but needed to ensure we addressed all issues involved.

Refunds will be processed.   For those who paid by credit card, a credit will be put through and for those who paid by cheque, a cheque will be forwarded.

We thank everyone for your patience and hope that we can hold the 45th. Show next year.

If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact Lesley Pichler, either by email lesley3313@bigpond.com or mobile 0407 176323

CHELSEA ROTARY – ART SHOW COMMITTEE

2014 Winners

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.
#372 Rosemary Toddman-Parrant "Contemplation"
Highly Commended
#365 Nancy Thurlby
"Colour My World"

Commended
#223 Lyn Mellady
"Summer Skylight"

#252 Do Noble
"Rural Rendition"

#147 Elise Hurst
"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.
#305 Geoff Sargeant "Granite Albany"
