I mentioned this the other day, it is such exciting new, but has had me in a bit of a whirlwind trying to get everything ready for my very first exhibit. It is a Group Exhibit, but we all have to start somewhere………it started off as three pieces and has now spread to ten and they have just emailed me to say they would love to give me more space for my art (I guess that is art talk for the exhibition is not quite full?) – or they really like my stuff, in that case brilliant!
Here is a copy of the invite which I created as the original invite they gave me doesn’t even have my name listed 😦 I can’t exactly hand that out can I? So this is one of the pieces I am exhibiting, the theme for this exhibit is Urban Forest, now googling that theme is a little open ended;
2. a densely wooded area within a city.
there are gardens and woodland areas in Melbourne, but not a lot of my images are really Urban Forest, so I am scouting around the edges so to speak; still very exciting.
First came picking images, now I am trying to get them all printed, Last night I had to hand in pricing list, limited edition schedules and Artist Bio and Statement………man that was hard.

Writing in the third person does NOT come naturally to me, and talking myself up, feels wrong and fake, but I had some else proof read it and they thought it was great, so hopefully it will be OK.
The Exhibit runs from 27th Jan – 9th Feb at Brunswick Street Gallery, 322 Brunswick Street Fitzroy. I will be there for opening night from 6:00 – 9:00pm….if you are free and in Melbourne I would love to have you drop in and say Hi……….there will be lots of other fabulous work on exhibit too.
