To get closure on The Exhibition that Emily Hill recently completed, it was decided to display here for the viewing audience, a slideshow of the pieces that unfortunately did not get sold during the showing, but are fortunately now available for purchase through this blog. So if you like any of the watercolours below, then leave a message and we will get in touch, will let you know sizes and costs, framed and un-framed…. you may notice a fairly distinct theme in the collection below.
This also frees up Emily to start working hard on her next project to which a few previews may grace these pages.

The Exhibition opening held by watercolour artist Emily Hill and photographer Jason Daniels was a great success with many of the pieces selling and earning a coveted prized red dot. It was of interest to note which pieces drew the most attention and also those that were silently viewed from afar.
Previously this blog has offered previews of each of the paintings, but now in a series, the full image will appear and while many of the paintings are sold. A few are still available at the Gallery for purchase. Here we find a stack of delicate tea cups perilously posed and delicately painted. This drew a great deal of positive appreciation from the attendees and was one of the pieces that sold.

Even a terracotta bowl has to start life somewhere, often simply a block of earth, cool and damp to the touch, but soon, in the hands of a potter, a shape forms and evolves from the spinning and whirring of clay. But it is not the end, decorations need to be made, glazes need to be concocted and applied and multiple firings often await before the end of the day. Sometimes it takes week for that humble lump of mud to finish its metamorphous, but at other times the process is over with rapidity.
It is less than 2 weeks to go now before the exhibition. Is the artist ready? Is there still time for one more piece?

In this photograph we see not the final result, but a moment captured when the artist, Emily Hill is at an artistic crossroads. Here we see a porcelain bowl placed inside a kiln, there are still pencil markings on the bowl which will burn off in the firing. The cobalt will become one with the porcelain and hopefully the blue will stand out against the white background.
With the temperature set to reach 1280 degrees Celsius, even the artist does not know exactly what the outcome will be.

Joining Emily Hill in the upcoming Exhibition is a series of Photographs by Jason Daniels, these photographs document the beauty behind the Watercolour Paintings that make up this exciting holistic display of art.
When the viewer enters the exhibition, they will be met with a collection that has ties within to each and every piece.

In haste and nervousness and a supply of misinformed information! It is with regret that I say that there are some mistakes on the Invite/Flyer for the exhibition and in particular when you can meet and greet the Artists involved.
So, Saturday is the correct day and the date should read the 19th of May and it will be at 12 noon!
Please, my apologies, the butterflies are flocking to my stomach as it is.
