Feelings and Sensations Exhibition
Vanessa Tamayo, Columbian Artist
Your invitation to a private launch, fizz and canapés provided by Canapé Box at Dantzig Gallery
7.00 – 9.00pm Thursday 29 November
Feelings and Sensations Exhibition visits Woodstock on it’s journey through the cities of Barcelona, Paris, Berlin and Miami.
“Feelings and Sensations” is a self-portrait, my intention is to connect with other women’s feelings and sensations. Women are the protagonists, they are naked as a reflection of how they feel themselves as opposed how the society sees them, and therefore wants to dress and ‘decorate’ them.
In the exploratory exercise to tell a story, I use women’s clothing and different fabrics like sequins, velvet and others simulating to “dress” and recreate the feeling, setting up an additional channel to generate the connection with the work.
To connect through the stories that I tell from “Feelings and Sensations” where the substrate of the piece is another channel that activates the connection with the sensation and feelings that I draw from the intimacy of solitude by spinning in 3 channels: White, Black and Blue.
TERRY FROST & PATRICK HERON
7-30 June 2018
West Cornwall became an influential centre for modernist art in the mid-20th century. Among the pivotal artists to set up practise in the area were Patrick Heron and Sir Terry Frost – the stars of this exhibition.
Our selection of pictures will focus on the work of these masters of abstraction – characterised by dramatic blasts of light, shape and colour – in pictures inspired by landscape and sea.
This is art which thrives in vivid, luminous colour and whose popularity is enduring.
Celebrating Henri Matisse’s Jazz
Henri Matisse’s illustrations for Jazz recently celebrated their 60th birthday.
Join Dantzig as we mark this occasion with a dazzling display of the entire series of 20 works.
Our vibrant lithographs were commissioned by the Museum of Modern Art New York – and printed directly from the original 1947 pochoir plates.
Their colours are so luminous that Matisse’s doctor even advised their maker to wear sunglasses while working on them.
Come and find out why next Thursday evening – 26 April – from 7.30-9.30pm
The exhibition is open to the public from 27 April to 5 May and 8-17 May at Dantzig Gallery.
And on 6 May we will be presenting the pictures in a one day pop-up show at the 2018 Cheltenham Jazz Festival.
Please RSVP to [email protected] or phone 01993 812000 by 5pm on Thursday as this launch is expected to be extremely busy.
