A Different Light - Kate Boyce Solo at The Calder Gallery

There will soon be an opportunity to see a collection of new paintings by me at The Calder Gallery in Hebden Bridge. My previous three solos there were a good success and I am really looking forward to this one and the chance at the opening night to meet those people who are interested in my work whether they be returning customers or people who are simply interested in seeing my originals 'in real life' having only previously seen my prints.
There is nothing like an impending solo show to make me knuckle down to some serious painting so I have produced over twenty new pieces for this show. The work is inspired by local yorkshire landscapes and beyond and ranges from mixed media canvas's of varying size to framed works on paper. Some of the pieces involve my collage techniques using photographic transfers and others are more abstract and purely about the paint. There are also some townscapes in my newer style of drawing on old papers ( see previous post 20/20 vision ). I find it interesting and fun to work in eclectic and varied ways at present and the exhibition reflects this. Hopefully visitors will find it interesting and fun too!

A Different Light by Kate Boyce is at The Calder Gallery from September 23rd till October 19th 2009
For an Invite to The Opening night on Sept 22nd Please leave a comment :)

How exciting, Kate! I love your work and would love to come and see it in person, if it were not so far.

It's great to have a deadline to get things accomplished, isn't it? There's nothing like a little adrenaline to fuel the creativity!

I hope your show is a roaring success, as I'm sure it will be.

Hi Kate,

Best of luck on your upcoming show! I hope you do very well.

I just wanted to stop by your blog and say hello. You hearted my shop on Etsy and when I checked out your shop I was stunned by all the amazing work in it. Honestly, I've never seen a style like yours. Your paintings are really stunning! I wish I could come to your show to see your work in person.

Hi Kate

I've just discovered you through ShopHandmadeUK. Your artwork is so stunning, I love it! My Mum lives in North Yorkshire so I'm going to see if she has time to visit your exhibition. I love painting but haven't done any for years, you've inspired me again! Best wishes Gemma x
