GARRETT ARTISTS EXHIBITION (article first published : 2002-04-20)

The Garrett Artists will be exhibiting at the new Grillroom Café at the Gateway Complex for four weeks from May 8.

Under the direction of Jeanette Gilks, some 30 artists who comprise the group will feature work in the traditional drawing genre - landscape, human figure and still life. The broad aims of the workshop are to stimulate lateral thinking by encouraging an experimental approach to materials and techniques and at the same time promote the value of the creative process.

" I love drawing," says Jeanette, "because for me it is an activity that is more transparent than painting. A drawing manages to track visually the stages of a thought process: flashes of feverish activity punctuated with gaps and pauses. These works are intentionally unframed; they are not "finished," indeed some are still in the process of becoming themselves. A number of these works are not really intended to become part of public domain. Instead I hope this exhibition will provide some insight into how images germinate and evolve."
