It has been a long time between drinks! Id id promise a regular update but time and lack of technical ability have held me back, along with a dose of procrastination! I do apologise and pledge to do better in the future before I loose you all….
Since the last blog I have not only finished the crocheted grass piece ( Security Blanket for the Mother) but it won the South West Survey at the Bunbury Regional Art Galleries for 2012. there was much surprise and a great honour on my part. thankyou to all involved, the sponsors, the judges and most importantly the Gallery and staff for such a great event.
The Dardanup Art Spectacular Art Trail May 2012
The Dardanup Art Spectacular has come and gone and this year the studio/gallery was open and listed on the Art Trail. An amazingly well organised opportunity for a guided trail of places to visit and see,eat and drink in the Ferguson Valley. It brought a lot of visitors here and we really were overwhelmed by the response. Thanks to all those who popped in and showed support.
This year following a successful show held here in October, I encouraged some of my very clever neighbours to get moving and to have a show in the Gallery space, so I could focus on the studio for the open days. So we had printmaker”s Lynne Mitchell, Bernie Dowley, Russell Harvie and Photographer sheerly McDonald, Water colour artist Joy Barlow. They hung a great and iverse show in the space. It was fun to see it all come together and to see how different work alters the feel of the space. we are planning on doing it again next year so keep your eyes open for dates and maybe plan a trip to the Valley.
I also had my two sister’s here, Michelle with a range of handcrafted Jewellery and Christine with some gorgeous wearable knitted works.
