From Natural to Abstraction

From Natural to Abstraction is both the title and theme of our exhibition at the The Creative Space in North Curl Curl from 21st September to 9th October 2016.  The Opening Night was on 23rd September 2016 and the exhibition was opened by well-known local artist Sally West.  18 members of A&SC are displaying works which address this theme.  The exhibition has been curated by Rachel Carroll

2015 – ARTiculate Exhibition

And we are also very lucky to have such a talented curator.  Rachel’s input to the show is invaluable, and she works magic on our already beautiful works!  A big thankyou to Rachel!

Dear Rachel
On behalf of Art & Soul Collective Inc, I would like to thank you for the wonderful job that you have done for us in curating our exhibition ARTiculate.  Your curation of Soulworks last year with 25 artists and 95 art works was excellent.  But I think that this year ARTiculatepresented an even greater challenge with 24 artists and 132 works.  But we are truly delighted with your curation of ARTiculate, which presents beautifully and looks highly professional as a result, and your curator’s essay.

So thank you once again.  I hope that you enjoyed the experience of working with both A&SC and the ARTiculate art works.
