I have been very busy for the past few months organising my first proper exhibition. I am exhibiting with a group of textile artists at Aspire Gallery in Brisbane, from the 2nd – 19th September. This is a very exciting time for me as I have never been involved in a “Proper” exhibition before. I have had pieces chosen for competition exhibitions, but this is very different. There has been a lot of organisation ( thankfully mostly done by the fabulous Bernardine Hine).
I have completed a few new pieces for this show that are currently being fabulously framed.
Evening Flight is based on a photo by my lovely sister-in-law, who has a talent for being in the right place at the right time with her photos, although I did add in a second bird as I felt he needed a friend on his joyous adventure.
Solitude is another of my sister-in-laws photos. I feel that this little guy has a sense of melancholy about him. He really does look sad to me. A bit of a contrast to the brighness of “Evening Flight”. I intentionally created these two with different colours to my normal bright blue and sand beaches so that there would be some variety!.
I am really excited about this show, hopefully it will lead on to many more 🙂
If you are in Brisbane pop in to the Aspire Gallery in Paddington between September 2 and 19 to have a look.
