Immerse yourself in the colours of summer! Newsletter July 2017

St John Street Gallery presents:


You are invited to the preview of this solo exhibition by 

Friday 14th July from 8:00-5:00pm.
Wine and light snacks will be available.

The exhibition will run from July 14thto 29th.

Louise Jannetta’s work continues to develop. Her work explores the influence of textures, their effect on medium application and colour.

Paint is applied to the recesses and crevices of the painting with highlights and contrasts to the prominent texture, glazes and washes are juxtaposed with pointillism and colour and contrasts add dynamism and expression. Jannetta utilises qualities in colour to create emotive atmosphere.

Read this fascinating interview we had with Louise a few months ago.
