-Ben Waters (2017) A sordid caper, in paint
I'm excited to invite you to my big event of the year - my solo exhibition at the Joondalup Art Gallery!
Twelve months ago, I won the City of Joondalup’s Arts in Focus award. The prize granted me $500 towards materials and a fully-covered solo exhibition in 2017.
And now the time has arrived! Thirty artworks, from loaded sketchbooks to heavy oil paintings, will be on display, with a fully published companion booklet Ryck Rudd, Capriccio! A Sordid Caper, in Paint, by Ben Waters.
I’d love it if you would join me on the 9th of June for the opening night with the Joondalup Community Arts Association. Drinks and snacks will be provided, with lovely harp music after a formal opening from WA artist and mentor of mine Gregory Pryor.
Oil on canvas, 60 cm x 92 cm x 2cm
