Contemporary Workshop, The ‘Implied’ Landscape with Glenda Carter – 6th May

We have a Full Day Workshop with Glenda Carter planned on Sunday 6th May: Contemporay mixed media The ‘Implied’ Landscape.

Glenda’s work relates to landscape and an emotional response to the atmosphere and the initial impact on the senses – to evoke a sense of place and imagery influenced by the climatic conditions. While much of her work is painted in rich sensuous colour and line, her city scapes are often worked in black and white, with strong gestural markmaking, as if lit by a flash of lightning in the night sky.


Download Workshop Materials List here

Date: Sunday 6th May
Time: 10am to 4pm
Venue: Yarramundi Community Centre, 54 Thornbill Way, Nepean Park Estate (off Springwood Rd)
Cost: $50 for members or $55 for non members

Morning tea provided, Bring your lunch – All Welcome
