Testimonials


  • Alison - Student
    I’ve now won 12 art awards. Nothing is more beautiful than the sound of people clapping for me, and my award winning art work. Thank you Grace for making this possible for me.

    Art Metro art classes have changed my life. I have dabbled with oil paints for 30 years and no one had ever taught me the skills in order to achieve success. The first art class produced a piece pleasing enough to be proudly placed on the wall at home. Thank you.

  • Irenie-Student
    Art Metro's classes have opened another door in my life, one that I had shut years ago because of a lack of confidence in my artistic ability, and how to use oils, mix colours, or paint on a large canvas.

    Someone told me that anyone could paint – they were right. You don't need talent, you just need a good tutor!

Once again we are approaching the time for a new student exhibition. This time I am delighted to present Tekla Kridle who shall grace our walls for August and September.
When: Saturday 10 August; 6:30pm
Where: here at the Art Metro; complimentary drinks available
As always, any purchases made at opening night get a 10% discount!

Tekla grew up in America’s Midwest during the heady and exciting early years of the United States Space Program. Utterly entranced by astronauts, cosmonauts, the first walk in space and race to the moon, she spent many childhood hours using food colouring to paint vivid planets, swirling nebulae and imaginary planetscapes, fervently believing in colourful and friendly worlds beyond Earth. A student of Astrophysics, she spent many hours at her University’s astronomical observatory studying the galaxy. Fifty years on, she traded food colouring for acrylics and began painting under the tutelage of Cristina Silaghi who encouraged her interest in fantasy art.

Tekla has published a story book to accompany her paintings which will be available at Art Metro and is excited this exhibit and publication of her book coincide with the 50-year anniversary of mankind’s first steps on the moon.

Book synopsis: An arty scientist takes an unexpected journey deep into the Universe on a meandering starway which travels faster than any spacecraft. Have you ever seen an astral staircase? Or a liquid methane waterslide? This perilous “trip” bears witness to the myriad sights beyond the Milky Way; unusual solar systems, signs of extraterrestrial life, celestial playgrounds and glimpses of the interstellar lifestyle. This is a lighthearted and wistful view of a vibrant and friendly Universe.
