We can not keep secret for our plan for January 2022 any more!

GAPS [Personal Enquiries into the Illegitimate] by @papa.zaff Marco Zaffino

We will open Dai Hall with Marco Zaffino's solo exhibition that investigates Gaps and Illegitimacy within creative actions and processes.
Date ; 13th - 29th January at Dai Hall
10:30 - 17:00 free entry
(Possible outside hours appointment)

Born in Huddersfield, @marcozaffino_art is a multi-disciplinary artist exhibiting as many solo / group shows in the past. He is a photographer for counterculture magazine PROWL, has directed feature films and feature screenplays, has written a book of short stories and novels.
This show brings his new sculptural work comprised of ideas, visions and sketches that bubble up over coffee, hiking and studio.

Gaps: the “micro-emotive” moments in silence(s), Dialogues with nature(s)
Illegitimacy: no brief, no permission, no payment.

Merry Xmas and happy new year then see you there !

To celebrate the first day of the Year of the Tiger, here are some photos of artwork produced for the 'Because...' art competition: 'Tiger' by Henry Morris, felt artist extraordinaire; and 'We who live in the forest' a painting by talented artist Paul Thorpe. I have also included one of my favourite photos of Henry Morris himself. Henry is pictured here with his artwork. Have a good year! Tigers rock!

"Influence the World" - happy pics of Rene Thomas and Matthew Evans with a very fine T-shirt by River Island. Couldn't persuade them to wear it... Photos taken at the second artists' photoshoot in Gallery 3. Rene Thomas was the winner for August, in the Calendar competition, with his painting 'Pitcher Plants'. Matthew Evans was the winner for February with 'Pineapple' and for October with 'Rainforest Trees'. Well done guys! As Sir David Attenborough has said, people will take care of things if they appreciate them or have an affection for them. This is why we keep on doing what we do at Rainforest Appreciation Artists. The exhibition is possible thanks to the support of CollaborARTi, Temporary Contemporary and Kirklees Council Creative Kirklees
First few pics from the second artists' photoshoot, which took place last Saturday, 27 November. Karen took these photos. Thank you Karen - nice shots! More to follow. Watch this space.

'Because...' the winning entry for September's category, Beetles, frogs and reptiles, was 'Mr Snake', by talented artist Michal Friku Handke. Congratulations to you Michal! Although I am posting an image of Michal's certificate, there are no photos of Michal holding it, as yet - because it wasn't prepared in time. Michal combined spray paint and acrylic paint to produce this splendid work of art. 'Mr Snake' is one of the most popular images on display in the Calendar Exhibition. On Saturday, one visitor to the exhibition even commented, "I'd have a tattoo of that." In fact, there already is somebody with one of Michal's works tattooed on their back! Thank you for following Rainforest Appreciation Artists! This exhibition is possible thanks to the support of CollaborARTi, Temporary Contemporary and Kirklees Council, Creative Kirklees Neon Locust
