November Demonstration

Saturday 10th - Sue Slack
Venue: Christ Church Hall, Stockton Lane, York. YO31 1JG.
2pm -4pm Members Free - Guests £5

Subject: Landscape in Acrylic

Asked about her work, Sue says "My inspiration comes from the moorland landscape that surrounds me. I explore the theme of walking and sketching in order to make that fundamental connection to the land which I believe is vital to my work.  My current work takes a familiar location and explores different aspects of my emotional response to that place, attempting to harmonise what I see with my ambition to achieve expressive colours  ".

'We get along better if we collaborate with nature instead of trying to dominate it.'
(Buddhist Tenet)
