Door to Door (Art in the time of Covid 19)
In March at the beginning of lockdown, Art Aviso Artists were invited to be part of an Art Aviso event 8.0 – Door to Door (Art in the time of COVID-19 or Art from isolation).
Artists were supplied via email or post with a page from Newnes’ Pictorial Knowledge 1950’s Encyclopedia (Edited by Enid Blyton) selected at random, which was to form the basis of an artwork to be exhibited at some time on the other side of the Pandemic. The page could act as inspiration for the colours, forms, texture, feeling or as a research starting point to dive down the rabbit hole! Artworks could be any medium but needed to be created on paper of A4 size and remain unframed.
The first phase of this exhibition will take place as an evolving and growing virtual exhibition which displays the finished artwork alongside the page that the artists were supplied for inspiration, and will culminate in a physical exhibition in November 2020 at our partner gallery No Vacancy Gallery.
Kathy Fahey's work in the exhibition titled Winter Landscape is a hand painted collage on paper and depicts Kathy's interpretation of her page from Newnes’ Pictorial Knowledge 1950s Encyclopedia ‘Snows of the Matterhorn’
