Join René Bolten for a still life oil painting workshop.

About this event

Join artist René Bolten in this one day oil painting workshop that looks at ways to bring deeply felt personal connections to the still life genre. Bring an object from home that holds special meaning and work closely with the artist as you arrange a still life composition with additional objects provided.

Participants will need their own art materials for this workshop. Easels are provided.

In conjunction with the exhibition Still Life: More than just objects - René Bolten on display at Tweed Regional Gallery 5 August - 20 November 2022.

About the Exhibition

Artist René Bolten’s new series of oil paintings Still Life: More than just Objects offer still lifes that are more than paintings of things. Rather, they are a document of memories, distances between and, although perhaps seemly odd combinations, they intimately explore the personal connection the artist has to his subject matter.

These are objects that Bolten has painted over and over again in different configurations throughout his life, loaded with memory and translated into paintings that carry story, humour and deeply held reminiscences.

A Tweed Regional Gallery initiative.
