Join Trudy in this “expressionist exhibition exploring the self”. A journey through art, emotion and self-reflection at the Salisbury Centre in an exhibition, exploring portraiture and figurative painting in an expressive, representational style. It is a brave expression of self through vivid colour and imagery – an exhibition focusing on inner states and emotions.’

Workshop 3 – ‘’Accepting, loving, looking, not fixing’’
Sunday, 16th of October, 6.30pm-20:30
Bring a mirror with you! Workshop learning to appreciate yourself – learning to look at yourself and admire your being, trying to capture on paper in all its colours and styles, all the flaws and humane beauties.
Workshop 4 ‘’Move without consequence?’’
Thursday, 20th of October, 7pm-9pm
Movement, music, theatre integrated workshop with Andrea.
It will focus on letting your body go, letting it experience the movements it wishes to experience, letting it dance in a raw, unpracticed, improvised way when it is at its purest. Expressing yourself through voice, dialogue, movement and putting the colour and style into that.
Workshop 5 ‘’People are all we’ve got’’
Monday, 24th of October, 5pm-6.45pm
Bring a partner with you! This workshop is all about connecting and admiring each other. Capturing each other in portrait form upon description is the main goal – they describe you to you (how they see you!) and you draw, paint, illustrate!
” I admire the eyes you have, they are round and full of love”.
”Your smile is wide and it brightens the room”.
Once everyone is a little more comfortable, some body painting is in order! Just go crazy – and remember to always attempt to capture the person in front of you in colours, symbols and words.
Exhibition Closing – Samhain
Monday, 30th of October, 3pm-6pm
One last look at the painting – examining how your feelings towards them have changed (if they have changed) – an invitation to write a letter to your fear, your love, your sadness, to share it around the fire circle, burn it or keep it – most importantly, believe in that freedom you have with your emotions, that it’s you who owns them, and they are yours to keep or let go.
Booking a place on some of the workshops related to the exhibition:
A student of many things, a creator of numerous trinkets and a connector of all kinds of people. Painting has been with me ever since I could hold a paintbrush, and inspiring people around me have kept me going. I love learning from the world, from people and from myself, which reflects deeply in my work, dominated by vivid colours and simple, yet effective subject matter – faces and bodies. I attempt to celebrate the sensitivity and pureness of what means to be human – and how glorious and scary it may sometimes feel.
