About the Exhibition
Accomplished artist Pete Cernis brings a selection of beautifully executed drawings and paintings to the Yvonne Rust Gallery.
“All artists strive to learn and this exhibition is in recognition of the ‘long toil’ we all undertake towards self expression.
As a snapshot of my learning I have included charcoal studies after Rembrandt, Vermeer and Goldie whose works
guide in identifying, acquiring and refining techniques while improving dexterity and material knowledge. There are
life drawing studies – one of the finest disciplines for training the artists eye and sensitivity of line. Other pieces
move towards composing with light while pointing to the learning yet to do.”
Pete Cernis Russell, March 2019
Please note that there is no opening event for this exhibition.
