We move forward from two successful exhibitions in 2016 in Prague and in the USA to the challenge of an exhibition in the Netherlands in the Autumn. We continue to work on A2 sized pieces in portrait format and will be producing four pieces over the year with the theme of 'Freedom'. An essential part of our art is working in series to a common format which does give us all a framework for our creative endeavours.

Ghanaian Adventure 3 Pat Archibald

Continuing my theme in this series of work I am looking at the elements that the craftspeople of Ghana take from nature and use in their processes to produce wonderful items.
From Bolgatanga we drove further north to a small village called Sirigu, famous for its pottery and decorated adobe houses. The local clay is moulded into plates and vases and painted in black, white and terracotta in geometric designs. It is very important to the local community that these craft traditions are carried on to provide employment and education for the villagers.
In this piece an adobe house provides the backdrop to a painted vase that I purchased on my visit there.
