So I'm hoping your year so far has been full of sunshine and joy, mine has started with a bang!
(IF YOU WANT TO SEE ALL THE PIC'S YOU NEED TO CLICK ON THE POST'S TITLE)
Lots of exciting opportunities, endeavours, adventures and experiments, artfully speaking. These pic's represent some of those outcomes and explorations, stay posted on either the LAUNDRY rooms facebook page or instagram for finished works, exhibitions, fairs etc... You'll also get to see what some of my extremely talented friends are up to! Who knows maybe this year I'll be more organised and I'll manage to get a few more blog posts done too...
Aviary is all wrapped up now but please do show your support to the next range of LYREBIRDS currently on display at PORT JACKSON PRESS, a beautiful bunch made by master printer MARTIN KING, gotta love a lyre bird! x
This coming Saturday the 12th of April see's Port Jackson Press Australiaofficially launch their new gallery space! Still on Smith Street, Collingwoodthey have moved a handful of doors down over Gertrude to number 84. So if your free on Saturday between 2 and 4pm drop by for the celebration and check out the supremely talented Marion Manifolds new exhibition at the same time!
Being opened by Jennifer Kalionis the Director of Castlemaine Art Gallery and Historical Museum, the Tree Show is a diverse collection of works which starts with each artist’s personal interpretation of the tree. The exhibition features some of Australia’s leading contemporary and established print based artists. There are additional feature paintings, prints and sculptures by several of the artists as part of the exhibition. The Cascade Print Workshop has been in operation for over twelve years. In 2013, Jeff Gardner and Kareen Anchen of Cascade invited over 30 artists to be part of The Tree Show, which was included in the Castlemaine State Festival open studios exhibitions.
Well there is a lot more work to do yet but I thought I would give you a sneak peek of what my new studio will soon look like. I'm VERY excited!
This place will soon house The Laundry Room Press, The Recycled Things Co, my own little framing business (I'm yet to find a name for) and my son's new venture of building Australian timbered skateboards...
And here starts this brand new year! I'm just settling on a few new works for an exhibition that starts next month at the delightful TACIT Contemporary. This will be the second show entitled EDITIONS that Tacit has hosted and I can promise that it is jam packed with some of my favourite printmakers from all around Australia. Thank you Stephanie Jane Rampton for creating this brilliant show!
