On the morning of October 13th the selection panel met to choose the work for the fourth SLWA exhibition to be held  at Dulwich Library. It took Emily Druiff, Mella Shaw and Maria Chevska more than two hours to view over 130 images and choose the final 46 pieces to be displayed. By lunchtime the final decisions had been made and the work will be on show in the library from 31st October until 27th November.

The Private View is on the  3rd November  from 8 pm – 10 pm and the invitation is open to everyone.
Whether or not you have work in the show please show your support for the SLWA  by not only coming along yourself but by inviting as many people as possible to join us. The strength and continued growth of SLWA depends on greater exposure of the group and this is a responsibility that falls at the feet of every member.  An awful lot of work goes into organising these library  shows  so  please do your bit by distributing flyers and e-mailing invites. Every exhibition is a chance to raise our profile which obviously benefits all of us!
Can anyone help with making canapés for the Private View? If so please email art@paolaminekov.com

LAUNCH MEETING OF THE SLWA SUB-GROUP

There’s been a lot of interest in the formation of a Painting Sub-group and to make the idea a reality I’d like to invite you to come and pool ideas about what we want the group to do and how we are going to achieve the goals.
The meeting is on Monday 11th October 2010 at 7pm at 214 Acre Lane, SW2 5UG.
Buses 35,37,137,417, P5
Underground Clapham North, Clapham Common, Brixton.

SLWA has many painters in it’s membership so I need to have an idea of numbers.  Please let me know if you are coming and any contributions to the agenda would be welcome.

I would like to invite members of SLWA to a critique at my studio on Tuesday 28th September. This will be the week after our Open Studios weekend so it will be a chance to view and discuss my work in a reasonably tidy space. People are also invited to bring a piece of their own work for discussion.
This will be an informal and friendly discussion and there may even be some wine left over from the Open Studios.
The address is 330 studios, St James Road, SE1 5JX  – please see website for a map but it is very close to PC world on the Old Kent Road. 330studios.co.uk
It will be 6.30 for 7 until 9pm.
This is part of a series of three critiques of work which I feel have some empathy, particularly in the use of material.The other artists will be Jackie Brown and Sarah Willet whose critques will be later in the year.
