Gold – Glitter Collection exhibition in Dingle by Stephia Gonzalez

The sparkle that lives in everyone of us

The Glitter – Gold collection exhibition in Dingle at Bácús café is featuring Stephia Gonzalez work, a Dingle peninsula based artist.

“The Gold – Glitter collection is to me showing the precious in you, what s left when you ve got nothing but this incredible will to live your own truth. I ve used metallic and glitter media symbolizing gold with my oil paintings as a way to represent in my work the sparkle that lives in everyone of us , sure the happiness that you will certainly never buy, but really the emphasis is about this incredible drive, the deep down ressources that we can reach in when we need it. Like a beautiful secret garden you have kept untouched that grows all the beauty you need to get through this life experience. Most precious of all jewel that live inside of you.”

The exhibition is on for 2 months August – September 2017 @ Bácús Café in Dingle Town, Co Kerry, Ireland

Easter Art Exhibition, Féile Ealaíne na Cásca, Dingle Peninsula

Over a 100 pieces of Art exhibit for Easter Weekend on the Dingle Peninsula

It s easter week end and there is loads on the Dingle Peninsula!

One event to be highlighted is the Easter Exhibition opening on Sunday 16th April 2017, the show is on until Friday 21st April

Why is it such a great event? You will be able to see there over a 100 pieces of art work from only local artists based on the Dingle peninsula, no matter their ages or stage in their career. It s an immense opportunity for any creatives, who live in this so inspiring part of the world, to show their work and sale it.

Many of the local artists will attend the event, so as you discover their work you can also meet them.

To get to the exhibition you will have to cross half of the peninsula to get there and enjoy the amazing view of mont Brandon, Ceann Sibéal I really advice to take a full scenic drive of the peninsula and make a stop to see the art as you pass Ballyferriter Village.

Another reason for us to celebrate this event is that some of LetGofYourColours Abstract oil painting workshop participants have their work exhibit at the show this year! We will be at the opening on sunday and hope to see you there!


A colourful online platform for artists

What a really fun colourful and very accessible playground for artists

LetGofYourColours has recently joined Society6 and made some designs from Stephanie Gonzalez at work available on their online platform.

It s a really fun thing, you upload an image of your work and you can see how it can be adapted to different products such as Tote Bag, Colourful leggings.

Artists can upload their designs safely and stay in control of their art works as it doesn’t affect their rights infringement and they get a small commission for every sell made.

Thousand of designs are available, I find it a bit confusing on how to make a selection for a particular product, on the other hand it makes it quite a unique gift as every product is only made on demand.

You can also simply acquire an art prints in which case the artist can decide on the pricing of the product based on the starting price of the platform.

What I am really loving about it is that it gives you the possibility to colour your world and choose the colours you want to wear .

Recently  LetGofYourColours An Abstract oil painting workshop for All Inspired souls Painting classes started in Dingle!

We are having a really great time here, the worshop continue on for another few week before I am traveling to India 🙂

Added to the adult classse at 7.00pm at the Díseart, a classe for the younger has been added from 5.45 to 6.45pm, that’s every monday in October 2016.

As much as I am delighted everyone is enjoying themselves, I am also amazed by how much commitement and constance the participants are showing and the result talks for itself, the Art work that is emerging from the workshop is striking! Most of us who are attending the workshop since the beginning is working on a second painting by now. Some are starting this evening, drop in at 7.00pm on mondays if you wish to join us.

I feel it to be a great success as we are all having so much fun together while each person is let totally free to express themselves artistically in their own individual style.

An exhibition is being talked about for those who wish to show there art pieces while I will be showing my own work.

I am so much looking forward to be showing you the amazing Art work that is being produced here!
