COLOUR THERAPY AT THE TIDE ART GALLERY AND COFFEE SHOP, PORTOBELLO.
Kate Christmas and Lou Davis are taking over the lovely Tide Art Gallery & Coffes Shop in Portobello for the month of October with our vibrant artwork. Our bright colours and cheerful designs are the perfect antidote to the darkening nights and the onset of winter. So come along and cosy up with a warm drink, meet the artists, maybe do some colouring in and spend an evening by the sea.
Launch event 6-8pm 7th October 2016 – Exhibition continues throughout October.
KATE CHRISTMAS ARTIST :
I am an artist working predominantly in textiles, especially silk, upon which I hand paint my designs. I love the fluidity of silk and the way colours retain their vibrancy.
Art for me is an important way of drawing people’s attention to the world around them, there are so many things to see if you notice the small details. My interests are many and varied, from the natural world to folk tales and mythical creatures and the internal parts of washing machines.
Ultimately, I love exploring patterns and shapes in all their various forms.
LOU DAVIS DESIGNS :
My drawings and paintings illuminate my thoughts, representing people, places and stories with colour, line and movement. Many are abstract, though some could be considered true illustrations. I create almost compulsively, like doodling in the margins. I work in any media: pens, paper, paint, 3D doodling pens, paper sculpture, textiles, felt. What holds everything together is the use of bright colour.
