Links to tomorrow’s zooms! There are two!

Tomorrow, Friday here in The Hague (the second one will be Saturday morning if you are in Australia or that region), we will Zoom to Sydney for two AZ-B tours.

The first in the morning (8am FridayAmsterdam/4pm Sydney) will be to painter John Bokor where we will see his current work and talk about the painter’s process.

The second will be 11pm FridayAmsterdam/7am Saturday in Sydney and at a respectable time in Houston/Boston/NYC! In this one we will visit Scottish Australian artist and writer Dr. Peter Hill. Peter will read from his memoir Stargazer that meditates on his experiences as a young art student who dropped out to become a lighthouse keeper in the Outer Hebrides. We will also discuss lighthouse keeping and isolating in the time of Covid19 and look at Peter’s new paintings.

I have sent links to join in by private message and by email. If you haven’t received one it is also below. You click on the link and it takes you to the Zoom. You can click or tap on your screen to activate/deactivate your audio and camera. Come in a little early if you’d like to practice because you haven’t tried this before.

Bring your wine, coffee, tea and settle in for the ride. You can just sit back and watch, listen or even activate your audio and ask a question or contribute a comment.

I am an artist and art teacher currently living and working in Sydney. I studied undergraduate Visual Arts at Edith Cowan University in Perth, completed my Masters in Visual Arts at the College of Fine Arts, UNSW, Sydney and studied printmaking at the National Art School, Darlinghurst, Sydney. I worked in Sydney in contemporary art galleries up until I left Australia and wrote and presented Professional Arts Practice lectures and seminars to final year undergraduates at the NAS. In Asia, the UK and Europe I have tutored and taught art privately including distance tutoring online. While living in Singapore I completed a Postgraduate Diploma in Secondary Education, Visual Arts with Monash University. In The Netherlands I worked, in pandemic lockdown, in a small studio in the forest of De Paauuw thanks to the generosity of Dutch artist and printmaker, Florence Fernhout and the Wassenaar Gemeente. Our May 2020 exhibition at Pulchri Gallery in Den Haag (The Hague) was cancelled due to corona virus controls, reschedulaed and again cancelled in 2021. To break the isolation and bring attention to artists and their works (including current exhibitions in lockdown or cancelled) I started the Art Zoom-Bus, AZ-B. Initially AZ-B was to bring together friends and colleagues who usually meet annually at a conference. This years conference (in Lisbon) was cancelled. Though the work has gone online and continues, the social outings that give everyone a work/leisure balance, do not. Social outings are often to galleries and museums so, at the suggestion of friends in lockdown in remote places, we went online for gallery and studio tours! Other friends have joined the tours now and so we have AZ-B! The Zoom Bus is temporarily parked as lockdowns have lifted and I carry on with my art studio practice in Sydney at One Plus 2 Studios, Balmain. I am still pondering on whether I'll reboot the Bus and in what format! If you'd like to see the Zoom Bus back on the digital road let me know your thoughts!
