Gallery Bodalla opens for the summer season with recent bodies of work by Stuart Whitelaw Breath of the Lotus, and Gillian Wilde Twinkle and Trust on Thursday 26 September and runs through to Sunday 27 October.
All welcome to opening drinks with Gillian and Stuart, Thursday evening 26 September at 6pm with music by guitarist Geoffrey Potter.
In this show Gillian continues to explore the use of collage and watercolours in her quest to capture the personalities of birds. While Stuart chronicles a year in the life of the lotus in the dam next to his studio. “I hope the works convey my sense of wonder of the many aspects of this life form (that sometimes seems other worldly.) The title of the exhibition refers to the event that started this series, when I saw the lotus exhaling through a small pool of water collected on its leaf,” Stuart said.
