Along with many other local Artists in the wider Franklin area I will be open 10-4pm all Labour weekend long Saturday 20th-Monday 22 October, as part of this open studio event.
I hope you come and visit me to view my Gallery+ Studio, chat and check out my progress on my new work in progress.
Katie Blundell Artist
This year, once more supported by the Clevedon Plunket Committee, Katie presents a new initiative ‘Living with Creativity’ in the hope that it opens conversations and fosters creativity in our everyday lives. This follows the great success of her ‘Under Pressure’ workshop series/exhibition in 2017 working with local parents and caregivers.
For kids that attend Clevedon Kindergarten there will be a free Creative thinking Kids Art Workshop at Clevedon Kindergarten on Friday 14th September 9-10am. Parents and caregivers of the Clevedon Kindergarten children are also welcome to attend.
For the broader community there will be a free Artist talk for local parents and caregivers where Katie will talk about fostering creativity. This is on Saturday 15th September 10-11am at Katie Blundell Artist Gallery+Studio, 331 North Road Clevedon.
To secure your place at the free Artist talk please RSVP to email@example.com
I have a great story to tell you! On the last day of the ‘Urban Jungle’ Exhibition, who should walk into the gallery but Sir James Wallace!
As I rose from my chair to meet him, my legs became weak and my breathing raced. I managed to greet him and his colleagues and eventually after chatting for a while my heart rate returned to near normal. I was in shock! I had never dreamed I would ever get to meet this great man who does so much for Art.
To make a great story even greater he has even bought my painting ‘Out on a limb’, so that is now part of his Wallace Arts Trust Collection!
Pinch me! True story!!!
Recently writer Jes Magill visited my studio and interviewed me about my upcoming exhibition at Railway Street Gallery. I am delighted to hear she thinks my paintings are “honest and clever with a humorous touch”
The story is in the June Eastlife Magazine pg 19 http://eastlife.co.nz
and the story has also been published in this month’s South Magazine pg 33 http://www.times.co.nz/south/
The double page spread includes a story about our Clevedon Art Trail and my friends Cheryl and James Wright at Art Industry so I hope you pick one up or look it up online.
