2015 – ARTiculate Exhibition
ARTiculate exhibition of fine art was presented by the 24 members of Art & Soul Collective Inc. The exhibition was curated by Rachel Carroll and opened by Katherine Roberts, Senior Curator of Manly Art Gallery. Showcasing a variety of painted, printed, sculptural and woven works based on each artist’s visual response to “The Written Word”.
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!
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.
