Art Studio News – November 2021

Staying in touch with art… by Kiara Timm

Dear Friends,

November is here and made its appearance with the first light rain of the season.  A moment of fresh joy that the season will finally change to a ‘cooler’ fresh air and a scent of Fall will come along but it did not last long. While many of us are craving for some cooler weather, the window displays seem to have started getting ready for the Christmas season, already putting together Christmas scenes and goodies. Christmas chocolates and sweets appear to be all over the grocery stores, creating a big temptation for the ‘sweet tooth’ ones.  Nevertheless, whether you are ready or not for the upcoming holiday season, we try to keep your creative art spirit up!  Some exciting events are coming up next!

So, as always let your creativity flow and drive you to exciting outcomes! As always, stay well, stay positive and enjoy your reading!

Among the Guto Ajayu Culture Art Anthology III

Very excited to be part of the Guto Ajayu Culture project with their  Art Anthology part III, a book  representing over 200 artists from around the world and which was presented at the Fine Arts Circle Madrid-Casa Europa (CBA) last month.

The book will also be part of the Spanish National Library in Madrid!

Creativity is contagious, pass it on!

Meeting A LOCAL  artist… Kelly Norman

Living in a village outside Limassol with her Cypriot husband and 3 children Kelly paints most days in her home studio. She holds art workshops for children and has coordinated community Art Projects. She has had 4 solo shows in Limassol and Nicosia and has participated in several group shows in Cyprus, UK and Bulgaria.

Currently Kelly has had a drawing selected for the upcoming The Lido Store Open Exhibition in Margate, UK, opening on December 1, 2021.

In September 2021 she had a painting selected for 2021 RA Summer Show in London. In June 2021 her new painting series on newsprint was selected for The London Paint Cub International Open Call, ‘TOGETHER THROUGH PAINTING’. In March 2021 her work was selected for the First Newsprint Open Call at The Three Works Gallery UK. Also in 2021, she participated in the online Turps  Banana Correspondence Course End of Year Show,  ‘In Absentia’ at the online platform

Her current work continues to explore the topographical landscape but in a more abstracted form.

“They are not conventional representations of rocks or cliffs or the sea; they are landscape-informed semi-abstract pieces. I use a wide range of materials including oil paint, oil pastels, oil sticks, charcoal and ink. I draw most days in and outside my studio. These drawings are simultaneously representational and abstract, static and dynamic. The drawings communicate tactile qualities embedded in the landscape exploring mark making and texture. I find during this research and production new areas of interest arise and lead to the next body of work. “

Art can be a means for self expression, a personal satisfaction, a way of living, a source of income but also Art can mean solidarity; a way to support one another and a way to bond a community.

‘Kids for Kids’ art exhibition was born from our children’s love for art and our wish for them to learn the importance of hard work and helping others.

The exhibition will be held at Exhibit 8 Gallery at Georgiou Gennadiou 16 & Themistokleous, on 27 & 28 November from 15:00-20:00 hrs and it’s open to all ages!

Part of the proceeds of sales will go to Ronald McDonald House Charities.  Some of the sponsors include Cablenet, Kean, Christis Charalambides, Eurogate, Associated Agencies Ltd, Laiko Cosmos, CXC Toys.
