It has been a year since my last newsletter and I had thought I would have sent out at least two more during the year! It has been a busy one.
I have handwork showing in Belgium, Cairns, Caloundra Regional Gallery and Redland Art Gallery and more recently in the Brisbane City Library. Many more exciting ventures on the horizon as well which is exciting.
Most exciting of all is that in a few weeks time Fiona Dempster and I will be exhibiting at Noosa Regional Gallery. The central focus of the exhibition will be 'Pas de Deux' which is a collection of collaborative artists' books we have created over the last three years. Some of you may have seen parts of those books in my studio.
In addition to the collaborative work Fiona and I have both produced our own bodies of work which will support this exhibition - a chance to see how we work individually as well as how we come together in our collaborative work. My work celebrates the relationship I have with the landscape. I have been working in a number of different directions of late and much of this work will be seen at the exhibition - 3D drawings, ink drawings and paintings.
The Opening for the exhibition at Noosa is on Friday 23rd October, 2015 at 6pm an it continues until December 6th. Having the exhibition open for so many weeks will provide much more opportunity for friends to find their way there.
The invitations will be out shortly with more information regarding our workshop and artist's talk and I will forward them through mail chimp as well. You are all invited ... please don't feel as though you should try and be there for the Opening as there will be many weeks for you to head to Noosa!
The Print Council of Australia has shown great initiative in making 2016 'The Year of Print' to celebrate its 50th anniversary. Many plans are afoot in the area to showcase printmaking in all its forms next year. This will be an opportunity for printmakers to showcase their talents and raise public awareness.
Exciting times not only at the moment, but looking ahead.
