Spontaneity

featuring Candice LeylandSharl G. Smith, and Jean Weller.

Exhibition ran from January to March, 2017.

Like great improvisational jazz musicians, allowing art to be spontaneous requires a careful study, reflection and respect of the medium. Watercolour and wildlife photography as media lend themselves well to the theme of spontaneity. Artists in these media must give up a certain amount of control and let things flow naturally. They must allow for and embrace the unplanned or unprompted. In doing so, spontaneity in artwork creates pieces that are loose, fresh and exciting, inviting viewers to share a moment in time, a flash of an idea or an emotion or experience.
