Wendy Black: Figuratively Speaking

Opening Sunday 26 Nov 4 - 6pm
Exhibition open: Mon - Fri (except Tue), 10am - 2pm
Please join us at the opening of TBSSS teacher Wendy Black's exhibition Figuratively Speaking + end of year Xmas drinks on Sunday 26 November from 4 - 6pm. All welcome!
This exhibition is a collection of my favourite figurative works, created over the last 15 years. The most recent being ‘Margaret Olley’ and the oldest ‘Jackie’. I have a particular fondness for portraiture, as you can see by the number of portraits in this exhibition.
Wendy has explored a number of artistic avenues, about 25 years ago she discovered sculpture. Her first foray was into ceramic sculpture but after seeing Tom teaching the life class on Burke’s Backyard a year or so later, she began what has turned out to be a fantastic journey into the world of sculpture and a 22 year relationship with the Tom Bass Sculpture Studio. Firstly as a student and since 2005 as a teacher.
Wendy likes to explore different media, including carving and wire. She has been a finalist in the North Sydney Art Prize 2015, awarded the Belle Property Award at Harbour Sculpture 2015 and won a number of people’s choice awards for her wire creatures.
