New release of Inkscape - Free Art Software

Inkscape has had a significant upgrade. The organisation is rather modest and describes this as version 0.91 (where 1.0 is theoretically the first complete release). The new version is faster and has more features.


RA and Ruben and his legacy: a visit with Derek. This is truly worth a visit. Thoroughly enjoyable and encouraging. 


A recent trial in the Netherlands found an artist guilty of plagiarism. He had painted a portrait from a photograph he found in a publication. The photographer challenged in a court of law and won. Lesson? Work from our own photos.

AGM fun

I enjoyed yesterday evening at Ripley. Thank you all for the kind words and the gift. The critique session was great fun and encouraged me to explore different ways of observing and creating.

BAS programme for 2015

Penny has once again put together a very interesting programme for us for our "First Friday" meetings. You can find it at The first of these is not till February, but the Ripley sessions on Wednesdays start next week, 7th January.

Malevich Exhibition

Having finally made it to the Matisse cut-outs at Tate Modern (don't miss!) I thought I might look in on the Malevich exhibition too, knowing that it has been highly rated by the critics and also knowing absolutely nothing about Malevich. This is not a particularly large exhibition, a fact that allows you to focus on the historical background which is integral to understanding the artwork. The great political upheaval in Russia though which Malevich lived his working life deeply influenced the outlook and behaviour of the artistic community of which he was a part.
