Art association meets

THE Upper South Coast Art Association will be holding its July meeting in the Activities Hall of the Amanzimtoti Library on 16 July. The meeting will begin at 2pm and end at approximately 4pm. Refreshments will be supplied for a small fee.

The demo this month will be given by Jennifer Sutton. She feels a painting should portray the soul of the artist, capturing the mood, and essence of the scene, with the ability to move the person who happened to stop and gaze at what perchance caught their eye.

Sutton was born in Durban, grew up in Dundee, went to school at St Johns and lives in Waterfall. As a child she was always drawing, colouring in and painting. It was only later in life that she was fortunate to start painting, finding what mediums suited her, and what she really enjoyed. Sutton says that to paint each day is a privilege, which she loves sharing with others. Her subject matter is varied and she work in oils and polychromos pencil crayons.

“Painting for me has to be picture perfect. I enjoy portraying a vision, capturing the mood and the movement. I derive immense pleasure from the detail, the magic of colour, and I have a great need to capture the light.
“When I have completed a painting, I never want to part with it. It is as if the painting has become a part of me. Painting for me is like walking in the mist, crying in the rain, and laughing in the sunshine, a feeling of being alive.”

The afternoon meeting will be preceded by a drawing session, which is open to the public, with no charge. The session will begin at 9am and end approximately at 12pm.
The drawing session this month will be conducted by Venila Govendar and her emphasis will be on Cubism - Picasso style. Attendees should bring their usual drawing materials and include charcoal and pastels. The Upper Coast Art Association looks forward to seeing you there.
