Art Exhibition and Art Residency Online – two separate events hosted online this week. I feel very happy to have been invited to take part in two exhibitions. They are both happening on Instagram, so if you are not on there it is worth joining. I usually post daily on my account karenplatt_textiles but these events are not on my own pages, they are on Instagram art pages, see below.
It’s the first time I have had an art residency online. My sixth art residency in all (the other three being at venues around the UK – Brison’s Veor, Cornwall; The Clocktower, Sheffield (twice); Burton Agnes in Yorkshire and Sheffield City Centre.
The residency takes place on Instagram #transientresidence
It runs from 15-19th March 2021 and I plan to post once or twice a day, early morning.
Work from my digital manipulation art with the theme of Tunisian Doors can be seen throughout the residency. If you like what you see, you can also buy the ebook from my online store
This also takes place on Instagram and I feel lucky to be a part of this digital art exhibition exploring Earth Patterns. When in the Tunisian Sahara I took quite a few photos of the sand dunes and I submitted one of my photos to this exhibition and was a successful applicant. The photo demonstrates the ever shifting sand and the patterns formed.
The exhibition features digital photographers who have explored this theme and launches on Instagram on March 19th 2021 on @aghaveyaprojects
Other works on Tunisia (there are travel ebooks and ebooks on Traditional Dress and Woven Textiles) and the Sahara which can be found online might also be of interest.
These are just two positives from Covid 19 this week. If it were not for the pandemic, I am sure there would not be so many online opportunities. If you miss the online art exhibition and art residency
my digital art is for sale on Saatchi Art online.
