Artists Exhibition Studies and Works

Southsea Cinema News


22 June – 8 July 2023

Private View 22nd June 5 to 7pm

This exhibition is an opportunity to introduce eleven talented local artists to showcasing various approaches to paintings, drawings and sculptures which exude style, skill and talent. Through their creative journey, some of our artists have rediscovered a passion to mark making, a skill and talent rekindling their love of art through the art of playing. This Artists Exhibition Studies and Works is a true celebration of the artistic value experienced in joining art classes as they have helped some of our artists to experiment, gain creative and practice confidence, to create friendship and to develop creative collaborations in attending the various projects offered at My Friendly Planet Art & Design School and the creative communities. This exhibition is not to miss.

This exhibition ties in nicely with My Friendly Planet Southsea’s Life Drawing Special Workshop, on 24th June, from 1pm to 5:45. This is a unique life drawing event where 4 MFP Life Drawing Social Club models are to model for 4 hours, in all 4 sessions. Such events are rarely produced in Portsmouth and we loved the idea of being able to draw our super duper models together at the Southsea Community Cinema & Arts Centre. This is also the first time where Alan, Ella, Indi and Julian get to model together. We are looking forward to you joining us in any of the sessions. There are 20 spaces per session. All resources are provided, charcoal, pencils, pastels, biro, paper A2/3, boards and easels, erasers, tape/clips and paper towels. You get to warm up, for a few minutes, with 10 minutes, 15 minutes and 30 minutes poses. You get the chance to take your drawings with you but not before we take photos of what you have produced during the session, to be showcased on our website and social media platforms. We look forward to seeing you!

A big THANK YOU to Aysegul Epengin and The Southsea Community Cinema and Arts Centre for supporting our creative journey, and to all the artists to have collaborated in making this show possible.
