I dropped my art work in to the group exhibition for works on paper to Red Gallery today. I have not exhibited very much lately and this exhibition really appealed to me so I was very happy to be asked to be in it by Gallery Director Kim. Kim has an enormous task ahead of her with the amount and the diverse work that I saw being dropped off. She was still smiling and happy, so far so good. I’m really looking forward to Wednesday night’s opening. I will have three framed works and four unframed works exhibited. I would love it if you came to see the exhibition.
In July I will be exhibiting at Red Gallery in North Fitzroy with a group (unknown to me) exhibition called Paperlicious. Not sure yet how many pieces but around 6-8 I would think. The work will be surreal hybrids, dadaesque in style, on Arches or Fabriano 300gsm paper. Some works framed and others unframed. Will post the invitation when it is available.
A fun exhibition is also coming up at Lord Coconut where we all had to make a small artwork incorporating a vintage test tube. Will let you know when that is on as well.
My website now has a Shop for sales of some selected art works. Send me a message if you need any further information about any postings.
Please let me know if you would like to know anything about my art practice.
Hope if you are in Melbourne you are keeping warm.
I’ll be in touch.
We had a terrific art exhibition at my house/studio last week. We raised $2200 from our beautiful neighbours, family, friends and of course from the generosity of our Artists. We had two gorgeous cheese platters, cupcakes, rock cakes, tea and coffee. I didn’t have a moment to offer anyone a cup of tea so it was so nice to see everyone helping each other by offering food and drinks. There is no cure yet for MND so money raised will go to MND Victoria to help with care and information for those that are afflicted. Here are a few images of the artworks donated.
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.
I have a place available on Thursday for anyone that contacts me. Only two others here that day so you can do collage or still-life painting. If you are a regular I am sure you will know what to bring, if a newbie I can advise you when you contact me.
This image is from a new series I am making, hope you like it.
I’ve been searching for some drawn images from my life drawing folios from 10 years ago. My plan is to combine it with some new media, possibly digital or analogue collage. This was charcoal on heavy watercolour paper and black ink. I miss charcoal and the freedom of working large.
