Can you paint a picture worth a few dozen words?

Posted on Updated on

That’s the intriguing challenge facing the Spey Art Group and associates.

Following the success of ‘Consequences’ exhibition now showing at Eden Court, our events extraordinaire Rona Smith has laid down a new test for us all.

It asks members to use their imaginations and creativity to come up with some unique pieces of art.

Each artist has been given three quotations and has to choose ONE as the focus for a piece of work. The quotes have been drawn from The Oxford Dictionary of Quotations – thus henceforth the project will be known as TODOQ. Rona has selected a total of 24 for the event from poetry, literature and many other subjects.

You are asked not to share your choice of quotation with anyone else – like Consequences, she’s looking for an exciting reveal when the exhibition goes on show.

Your response can be in any medium and any size.

Works will be grouped along with the quote that inspired them, giving everyone a unique insight into how the SAG mind works.

The plan is to exhibit the works first at Eden Court Theatre during July and August, though the deadline for completion has yet to be finalised.

If you are interested in taking part, please contact Rona to receive your three quotations –

No man is an island handwritten
No man is an island. John Donne (1572-1631)
