Shelley Boyd in collaboration with Marilyn Reeman are delighted to announce the launch of BOYD GALLERY and initial exhibition, titled DUENDE. The space will showcase a number of emerging artists who embody Boyd Blue's ethos and appreciation for the hand-carved, hand-formed & hand-forged.
DUENDE will hone in on the physical and emotional response to art – the mysterious power of art to deeply move a person through organic expressions.
The works will sit in dialogue, creating their own visual language, focused on the quirky and imperfect nature of organic elements.
The Gallery space is located at the Boyd Blue Brisbane Showroom at 34 Arthur St, Fortitude Valley QLD 4006.
Artists are invited to present submissions for selection to exhibit works for DUENDE opening 02 September 2021.
The group exhibition will be limited to five artists, and submissions are welcome from various genres and work practices including sculpture, ceramics, painting, textile & design.
Please contact Marilyn Reeman at email@example.com with any questions about submission.
