The 5th exhibition of work by SLWA at Dulwich Library is to run from

Sunday 27 February– Saturday 26th March 2011.


This will coincide with Southwark’s 6th Year of Celebrating Women, and 100 years of International Women’s Day on 8 March 2011.

In order to explore further SLWA’s established relationship with Dulwich Library and this important centenary, we have decided to give our show a theme. And what better theme, given our location thanWOMEN and BOOKS

Your work might be inspired by a writer, a genre or a book, but if not, your work could be opened up to new meanings with the help of a new title.  ‘The Remains of the Day’, ‘Far from the Madding Crowd’ or an inversion like ‘ a View from a Room’.  It would be great to enrich the show with texts – so please tell us about the work you are submitting!

This Spring and Autumn exhibition is now a fixture in the calendar and a good way to keep up the profile of our artists in a space that is fast establishing itself as a venue to view and buy small original artworks.
The library is a well used resource centre and the exhibition will be seen by large numbers of people during the month of March.
The previous shows have sold well and there have been several ‘after show sales’ proving that keeping our work in the public eye is important and effective for us as a group and as individuals.

Dulwich Picture Gallery invites you to enter an online art competition based on the current exhibition Salvator Rosa.

Salvator Rosa (1615-1673) was one of the boldest and most powerfully inventive artists of 17th-century Italy. He was adopted as a hero by painters of the Romantic movement in the late 18th and early 19th centuries. He was mainly a painter of landscapes, but the range of his subject matter was unusually wide and included portraits, scenes of witchcraft and allegories.

A group of the works in Dulwich Picture Gallery’s current Salvator Rosa exhibition transport the viewer into a mysterious world of monstrous mythical creatures, bandits and magic. Drawing from Salvator Rosa’s work and a famous myth, legend or fantasy novel depict your own allegorical scene.

Your entry and a brief sentence about you (if you like) will be published on Dulwich OnView and the Friends of Dulwich Picture Gallery’s Flickr group The Rosa Competition.

  • Any flat medium – painting, drawing, mixed media, photos etc.
  • All entrants to be digital images of original works
  • Categories: under 18, 18 and over (more…)

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

By Susan Wood

– thought some of you might be interested in a wonderful exhibition I went to this Tuesday in Berlin which started on 17 June and runs for a while:
– Bröhan Museum [opposite Schloss Charlottenburg, nearest underground is Richard-Wagner-Platz].
F R A G I L E Glaskunst 1889-1939 – it has wonderful pieces of glass from 1889-1939, from Art Nouveau to Art Deco and Functionalism, and includes examples of all sorts of glass – opaque, translucent, carved, engraved, enamelled, iridescent … – for real connoisseurs there is a huge, comprehensive, fully illustrated catalogue of the whole 700 items in the museum’s glass collection. For more information see www.broehan-museum.de

Even if you’re not keen on glass, you might be interested in the Women’s Hotel in Berlin called Artemisia – it’s right by the underground station Konstanzer Strasse and is very near the Kurfürstendamm, which used to be the main shopping street of the former West Berlin. The idea of a hotel for women only has been going for quite a while now – there are four or five hotels for women only in Germany, and the lady at reception told me there’s one in Rome and one in Florence too. This hotel is reasonably priced, has been very nicely refurbished, and has a lovely breakfast terrace on the 4th floor so you can eat outside if it’s hot. The rooms are spacious and airy with high ceilings – good when it is very hot outside! There are lots of paintings around the public rooms, corridors and bedrooms that are by women artists – many donated by the artists. Have a look at the website if you’re interested – www.frauenhotel.berlin.de

If you’ve not seen it already I  really recommend 5 BY 5: An Exhibition of Contemporary Australian Art
It’s on at The Menier Gallery in Southwark until June 5th. The exhibition showcases the work of five artists, Helen Pynor, Tony Lloyd, Anthony White, Dennis Nona and Laith McGregor.

The ephemeral and sensual C-type photographs of flowers by Helen Pynor are stunning (she was recently selected for the RBS Emerging Artist Award in Australia, and has been selected for the Royal Academy this year!) (more…)
