PEACEWORK – PIECEWORK
An exhibition by MelittaArt – paintings, textiles and 3D
If you wish to enjoy appreciating art that enthrals and inspires you, brings colour, imagination and peace into your life, then visit the Barn Gallery at the Bield at Blackruthven. Melitta A H Bosworth is exhibiting her newest works, from 1 – 30 October, open daily from 10am – 4pm. The Opening Night with refreshments, to which everyone is cordially welcome, is 30 September 7 – 9pm.
Melitta believes in encouraging a person’s potential and growth, often through art and reflection; helping to hold that space for others. Her art has brought a peace on her own life journey- that dance of periods of peace and periods of pieces, ultimately leading to greater wholeness. She has a natural affinity with nature, believing in a certain ‘poetry of place’ in landscape and her surroundings. She creates art with a depth, a celebration of colour and a nod to realism.
Melitta is a Scottish contemporary artist, art facilitator, spiritual accompanier and person-centered counsellor who uses art therapeutically – based in Perthshire. She is a graduate of Edinburgh College of Art, the Open College of Arts, and of Leith School of Art. She gained her post graduate diploma in PCT counselling from the University of Strathclyde. She is a member of Paisley Art Institute, and a member of the Glasgow Society of Women Artists.
She has had works commissioned, including recently by Perth Cathedral, and has exhibited extensively in group and solo shows. Melitta is also an experienced and in-demand workshop facilitator – offering opportunities in ‘Creative Journeying’ courses & tasters, as well as opportunities to explore creativity & spirituality.
As Tripadvisor’s 5* review says of Melitta and her work space: ‘a well-equipped art room and art room facilitator (who is so gentle, encouraging and a rich resource in herself)’
Melitta is Art – she is energised by the process & delights in sharing that. She also draws inspiration from other creative practices, particularly poetry, such as Wendell Berry’s ‘Peace of Wild Things’, and in her art invites you to, ‘… come into the peace of wild things’, she encourages you to ‘rest in the grace of the world, and (be) free’.
Until now, a somewhat undiscovered talent in Scotland, Melitta’s time is here and her ‘Peacework-Piecework’ will gracefully set you free.
