ARTIST OF THE MONTH
May 2022 - Errol Pike
I knew I was an artist at a very early age, probably when I was about 5 or 6.
I went to my first movie called “Samson and Delilah’’ and saw Samson kill the lion. There was a poster outside the theatre and I copied the art - I think just about perfectly.
I paint in all mediums but prefer oils.
Starting in watercolour, a very difficult medium, taught me all sorts of tricks which carry over into all art eg. preparation, mixing colours, blending etc.
I have a tertiary degree in Visual Art and have studied all forms of art. I’ve been teaching it for 20 years.
I paint in an impressionistic/realist style with lots of colour and movement.
My work includes landscapes, seascapes, figures and animals.
MEET ERROL over morning tea here Friday May 13 at 10.30am.
Bookings essential on 3408 9288 as spaces are limited.
WHO ARE THE ARTISTS OF THE MONTH ?
The Artist of the Month, whose works are displayed on a feature wall of the Centre Gift Shop, can be from near or far. Many are local Bribie artists who have shone in their medium or are taking an opportunity to display a new one. Some artists are from surrounding areas, and others come from further afield to have their work seen and admired by a new audience.
The Artist of the Month is not only a talking point at the Centre, it also showcases works and practices to stimulate and inspire artists and visitors alike.
If you would like to inquire about being Artist of the Month, please contact Sue Davey at the Centre on 07 3408 9288.
