Exhibitions and Workshop news.


Two Invitations to two interesting and quirky exhibitions that I think you will enjoy.

I would like to invite you to two exhibitions I am in that are coming soon. I have attached information for both Red Gallery 's Paperlicious exhibition and Lord Coconut's Vitriform exhibition.

I have several artworks in Paperlicious at Red Gallery and would love to see you there at the opening on Wednesday 24th July 6-8pm.

VITROFORM

EXHIBITION OPENING: 5:30pm - 7:30pm 8 August 2019
EXHIBITION: 8 August 2019 - 24 August 2019

Vitroform is a visual arts collaboration between Art Aviso, Lord Coconut and 20 plus visuals artists re-imagining vintage soviet era glass test tubes reflecting their individual artistic practices.

Art Aviso Artists were supplied with a single, vintage glass, hand blown test tube from the USSR and invited to create a freestanding artwork using the test tube. Artists were encouraged to use the opportunity to potentially step outside of their usual art practice and use elements of play and experimentation in the process of producing a finished art piece.

About Lord Coconut:

Stocking over 600 individual jewellery pieces and representing over 40 Melbourne and interstate jewellers, artisans and designers, the undeniably unique Lord Coconut is Melbourne, Australia’s only retailer, gallery, and online boutique selling contemporary jewellery designed with men in mind.

24 July – 11 August: Paperlicious – Works On Paper

Opening Night Drinks Wednesday 24th July, 6-8pm

The wrapping that gets in your mouth. Is it edible? Is it paperlicious?

Vulnerable, organic, hand-made or industrial, culturally sensitive; works on paper, in all their inventiveness and rich variety, demand close scrutiny and reinvigorate the original in a world of simulation, replicas and screen over-saturation.

An outmoded office tech, housing for architects, flammable evidence, packaging for consumption. As one of the oldest art-making tools, paper is all this and more.

red gallery presents:

Aly Atkin, Anne Forwood, Anne Warren, Cathy Muhling, Craig Daniels, Debbie Mourtzios, Dierdre Pearce, Elise Pahlow, Gwen Scott, Gordon Monro, Helen Kocis Edwards, Lincoln Glover, Luke Duncan King, Maria Petrova, Margot Petrova, Marie Watt, John Hinds, Melanie Lazarow, Paul Compton, Rosalind Pach, Sally D’Orsogna, Tania Matilda, Thalia Robertson, Voula Therios, William Kosky

The weird and the wonderful are strongly encouraged.

Hello it's cold.

Nearly Winter in Melbourne Australia but I suppose we shouldn’t complain because we don’t get so cold that it snows. Hope if you are nearby that you are keeping warm and that if you are in the Northern hemisphere that you are getting some sunshine.

I am preparing for a small fundraising exhibition here in Alphington. One of our beautiful artists has Motor Neuron Disease so we are fundraising for MND Victoria. They are only partly government funded so they need public support in order to assist those with MND and their families to cope.

The artwork generously provided is by the artists that come here for classes, myself and by kind artist friends that are also donating. As the event is in my home it is by invitation only (just let me know if you would like to be included).

I’ll post a few pictures of some of the work.
