By chance, I noticed the poster in the Cobalt Gallery window the other day, and I’m glad I did. I love listening to artists talk about their art-making processes … not so much their motivations and inspirations; their means and methods. Shop talk.
Of the 4 local artists, only one was known to me. We have a couple of Stefan Berg‘s Buddy Bolden Blues linocuts. So it was an opportunity to see work and hear from Patrice Carmichael, Anne-Marie Olczak and Benjamin Wieler for the first time. All work in different ways and styles, which added interest. We got to ask questions. too. Very informal and relaxed.
The coffee was good, compliments of the Grinder Café on Main where a number of Berg paintings are on display. They were closed when I went by, so another day.
Stefan Berg in profile, talking with Benjamin Wieler. About 20 participants turned up. Good response! I believe more such events may follow this first one.
