Ps going to Agnes Martin exhibition at Tate Modern tomorrow

… and off to Venice on Thursday.

A little titbit from our Trevor Bayly who is currently travelling over in Europe. Hoping to hear more than just teasing.

Agnes Martin, Happy Holiday 1999, Acrylic and graphite on canvas

This is the first retrospective of Martin’s work since 1994. Covering the full breadth of her practice, this extensive exhibition will reveal Martin’s early and little known experiments with different media and trace her development from biomorphic abstraction to the mesmerising grid and striped canvases that became her hallmark.

Our Jane Thorne is part of the Art in Action!

I will have paintings in the exhibition space, be doing a live painting demonstration (me doing what I normally do just not in my own studio!) and for the children and those who act like children (me) I will be hosting a pet rock painting activity during two workshop slots.
Tickets are available now and it looks to be a really fun event! See you there!
