Exhibition Opening

The opening of the Rosebed St Gallery's Xmas exhibition was, as usual, packed!  The doors opened just after 7 pm and it was like the post-Christmas sales. 

Here I am with my small display of works
Amy, Maya, and Noela Mills
Kym Barrett, Guess Who, and Kim Schoenberger
Kim Schoenberger with her small sculptures (and my addition of words)
Kim, Annie, and Kari
It was great to catch up with so many artists/friends and to see the wonderful variety of creativity.

I expect that there will be many sales before this show is over.

This is my 199th one will mean a giveaway. Hmmmmm...what will I part with?

Exhibition Invitation

The Annual Xmas show is on soon at Rosebed Street Gallery.  It's always packed, and great fun, with art disappearing out the door in a constant stream.

The other side of the above is divided into tiny snippets of the various artists works.  I've split it into two so you can 'get' the picture.

Not brilliant resolution, but at least you can see the variety of work that will be available for sale.

This is my favourite show of the year, and I wish you all could come but hey, I know you'll be there in spirit.

Bless me followers.....

...for I have sinned.  It's been three weeks since my last post and I have only one excuse. I'm over-committed. 

SOMETHING will have to go.

Have been madly organising small paintings for the Rosebed St Gallery's Xmas show.

The three top paintings are 10" x 10" and titled, l to r, Patchwork, Splash, and Eight. The small works are 4" x 4" and incorporate pieces of a huge jigsaw puzzle I found in an Op shop.  They are therefore aptly named 'Puzzle Pieces' 1-10.

This show is a 'takeaway' show.  You pay, you take... perfect for Xmas gifts.

In between I've been working on a piece for Dale Copeland's January exhibition online at her Virtual Tart site.

The exhibition is titled 'Exhibit No Fear' and I have done a collage.

And there's more...... am working on my 13 collages for the 15th Annual International Collage Exchange, AND an online exhibition on Virtual Tart in February.  Not to mention organising three paintings for Studio 4 Gallery's Xmas show.

It's all go. Everyone's in the same boat, and we'd better all keep paddling or we'll come to grief. 

My friend Seth Apter is the most over-committed bloke I know.  As well as his assorted art commitments, and there are many, he's organised an art auction of many yummy bundles of arty stuff to assist the people affected by the huge storm, 'Sandy'.  PLEASE visit his site might see something you really must have.  You only have until Monday (Australia time).

Apart from all that I've recently won a Second Prize for...

...and in the same exhibition bought a painting of Jenni Kelly's....

Oops, I've cut a bit off the top...but you can see how beautiful it is.  I'm sure she's been painting in my garden.

Think I've covered most of the recent events, other than all the fabulous O/S mail I've received lately, but I'll save that for another day.
