Origami in steel..



What better way to while away a few hours on a winters day! Yesterday, chilly outside, warm and inviting inside Art Gallery WA. In the foyer a new sculpture on loan to the gallery, a piece by English sculptor Lynn Chadwick (1914-2003). The couple 'while sitting side by side are actually separate entities. Occupying their own space, staring, one imagines, into their own worlds and their own distinct futures'. I think you might be in for an 'arty' week :) One of the exhibitions moved me to tears, which I can honestly say has never happened before, show you later in the week. Hope you had/are still having a wonderful weekend, happy Monday, take care and stay safe..

  3. An art filled week sounds perfect to me. I'll be looking forward to it. Have you ever wrapped your mind around the incredible amount of art that is out there for all of us to enjoy? Everywhere I go I visit the art museums and am blown away by what I see and all of that beauty is available no matter where you go around this globe!

  8. I really do enjoy wandering in art galleries. Which reminds me, I should spend a day at the AGO (Art Gallery of Ontario) soon and see what new exhibits they have.

  13. You have so much art around you< I am really more than jealous. On the other hand I would never live in a city, I love the country far too much. Take care Diane

  14. Oh I love this thought! Bring us to as many art galleries as you can and do share the one that moved you to tears. Those are the most touching pieces one doesn't often get to view.

  16. Love these sitting sculptures. Can't wait to see the piece that moved you to tears. I often go to art exhibits alone because invariably I am moved to tears--I can REALLY get into art in an emotional way.
